Ampersands annoy me. Supposedly, they save space, but I think that's not a good reason to have some ugly little squiggle mucking up your document. The other reason I dislike ampersands is because I can't draw one. I never have been able to and I never will because I don't use them. I can be looking right at one and attempt to draw it, but it comes out looking more like a frustrated scribble than a genuine ampersand. Some people can draw them perfectly, and I envy them. If I want to use an ampersand, I use the plus sign.
