    Default The tiny, overlooked annoyances of being Batman.

    We tend to focus on the big issues concerning Bruce Wayne (or his charges) being Batman, and in so doing, overlook the minute and perhaps humorously annoying ones. Sure, Batman often needs to focus on how to thwart the Joker, Ra's Al-Ghul, Bane, and occasionally even *Darkseid* from ruining his city, but you can also picture him sitting in the Batcave, going bananas while performing such arduous, but necessary tasks as loading all those tiny pellets and other tools into those small cylindrical tubes on his utility belt.

    I'm sure Alfred helps him with a lot of this stuff, but there are probably times when Bruce has to do the dirty work himself.

    Constant oil changes and other maintenance on all the bat vehicles.

    Coding and trouble shooting his computer system must be a slow pain in the ass.

    And getting in and out of that costume can't be great.

    I wonder if Batman ever has a "bad cowl day" ....

    What does he do in that costume if he gets "excited" while fighting people like Catwoman or Poison Ivy?

    We saw him doing some dirty work in "Batman Begins." Using his little machine shop to make Batarangs. It clearly takes him a while.

    I bet he returned to the docks after taking down Falcone, to look for those Batarangs he threw, in order to save himself the time of having to fashion replacements.

    Deciding when to leave a conversation with Gordon and do his disappearing act.

    Practicing his interrogation and intimidation techniques in front of a mirror. I don't care how good you are at speaking, if professional actors need multiple takes to get the delivery right, there's no way that a super hero can't get tongue tied some of the time.

    The biggest annoyance is probably having to use the bat-catheter and urine pouch housed in his utility break, because, you know, JUSTICE doesn't take a potty-break.

    How about several thousand bats peeing and pooping with no regards for computer screens, food or drinks?

    Alfred puts little Bat-diapers on all of them . . . colored black so they don't stand out and embarass the bats.

    Wayne Enterprises owns several shell companies that have heavy investments in Nike and Kathie Lee Gifford Enterprises. Their sweatshop workers do all that stuff.

    Writing checks to Alfred, all that work he must make pure bank!

    I thought Batman left that work to the crews in the white vans.

    Batman gift wraps, but I don't think he delivers to the door.

    The image of that in my head is just so ridiculous I love it.
