Mine isn't a personal frustration, but rather my husband's. We both play, but I was in the middle of a few months of downtime to take some night classes. This was post-BC, and I left my highest level toon at 62. I had never had the experience of running heroics for loot.My husband's main was a 70 hunter. He had pugged a group to get the Beast Lord Helm in Mech, as he'd been collecting all the set pieces. The plan for the group was to run another heroic after Mech, to get a different set piece for one of the other 4 players.It was after midnight, and I was sleeping so I could get up for work in the morning. He ran Mech and was on Vent—talking quietly. This wasn't his first run through Mech to get that helm, so he was desparate for it to drop.He woke me up once about halfway through the dungeon. I basically walked into the office and gave him a stern glare, and he went back to being quiet. He even shut the office door. He promised he wouldn't wake me up again.I really need my sleep in order to function during the day......so when the Beast Lord Helm dropped, on this 30th run (or so) through Mech, my husband yelled with excitement. Waking me up. I was so upset (and still groggy) that I decided the best course of action would be to let him think I was still asleep, and unplug our cable modem.To the rest of the pug, it looked like he had just taken the gear he wanted and left instead of staying to help with the next run. He set things right with them later, but it was frustrating for him when it happened. Now it's just hilarious.
