Automatic skill gain.

I don't have the same control over my Sims in Sims 4 as I do in Sims 3, despite autonomy being disabled. Because Sims will start interacting if approached by an NPC. Then they will start to gain charisma and humor and whatnot without me telling them to. This does not sit well with me. And I'm far from the worst of control-freaks. Plus, it feels like everything is a skill in Sims 4. I'm surprised that there is no burb, fart or turn-your-head skill.

Autonomous cooking.

The Sim is hungry, so he/she goes to the fridge and cooks a single serving meal.  Now, you would think that, since they have a plate of freshly cooked food in their hand, that they'd just go ahead and eat it.  And, you would be wrong.  The Sim sets the meal down on the nearest surface, and then cooks another single serving meal.  But do they eat that one?  Hahaha, how silly!  Of course they don't eat that one!  Why would they eat that one?  No, they set that one down on the counter, too, and go to the fridge and grab yogurt and eat that, instead.   :o

And don't even get me started on their obsession with drinking water.  Take your eyes of the screen for even a fraction of a second and they got 27 glasses of water sitting around all over the place.  It's like they're living in an ocean lot, except that the ocean is in a bunch of drinking glasses.

@Hosfac  Both of those things are actual bugs.  The one with cooking, then cooking something else, seems to be recent.  The one with autonomous water drinking has been going on for quite a while- there's a hidden Thirst motive, so sims will occasionally get a drink on their own.  But at some point, it seems to have become bugged and doesn't get replenished when they grab a drink, so they keep drinking, and drinking, until they're finally interrupted by needing to pee.

The rate at which you have to fix items. I have a several things break at once.
Cooking fires is another when your new and hardly any money to replace it.
