Does one of those things have notifications? Internet connected?

Three things = three concrete things? Solid things? Are those things connected to entertainment mainly? An hobby you have? Food? Are those connected to each other?
Lateral puzzles involved?

Last week = Specifically the week with new year eve and Christmas? Did those things annoyed you also last year in the same period? Because you would like to spend time with your relatives?

Annoyed = from time to time? Always? In regular time slots (e.g. every day at the same hour? Every hour? Every two hours?...) ? Is there a relevant mean through which the things or one of them annpyed you? E.g. a sound? A physical disturb? An itch? Confusion? The need of getting up every time? The need of performing a certain action? If the latter, the same for the three things?

The need of performing a certain action? They affected a certain necessary action. If the latter, the same for the three things? All three things together created the situation.

Same hour = in the afternoon? Evening? Morning? During breakfast? Dinner? Lunch?
Did they annoy you while at your house? Outside? While working? Are those three things connected to your work? Do you like them in the same context in which they annoy you? Did they annoy you specifically because during Cheistmas week you are more relaxed? Technology involved? Electronic? Christmas three?

Did they annoy you because you've heard about them a lot of times? E.g. in television? At the radio? Are those things somehow connected with Christmas? Are those things located in your house? In your workplace? Do you bring them with you depending on where you go? If one of those three things were not present, would the situation annoy you or even take place? If not is this because all three are necessary in order a specific service is provided? Do the three things usually work if and only if they are together?

Physical disturb = you stanging up? You pressing a button? You whistle? You turn off or turn on something? Allow something not to turn off?

Is the sled physically connected (e.g. with ropes) to one of the three other things annoying you? Is the sled in a specific ppace? Is it a motorized sled? Do children annoy you?

Santa relevant? Chimney?

Are the two other things connected to ice and cold as well? To sleds? To children? To cleaning the streets from snow? Snow itself? Viability? Visibility? Pipes? Water pipes?

Is the sled physically connected (e.g. with ropes) to one of the three other things annoying you? Yesish. Is the sled in a specific ppace? Yope. Is it a motorized sled? No. Do children annoy you? One of the things is a child (I otherwise like kids).

Santa relevant? Chimney? No to both.

Are the two other things connected to ice and cold as well? No. To sleds? Yope. To children? Yes. To cleaning the streets from snow? Snow itself? Viability? Visibility? Pipes? Water pipes? No to the rest.

So one thing are sleds, the other children (on sleds). We need to figure out the third one connected to the previous two right? Is the third object a similar mean of transport like a bob? Is it choir of people going from house to house?
To be sure children + sled = children going on the sled right?

Is the third thing more connected to Christmas? Related to gifts? Related to the use of streets improperly (e.g. to go on a sled)? To the parents of the children who let them go on the sled? To the use of something improperly in order to play eith the sled? Relevant what is used to drag the sled? A dog?

So one thing are sleds, the other children (on sleds). Correct (one child). We need to figure out the third one connected to the previous two right? Yes. Is the third object a similar mean of transport like a bob? No. Is it choir of people going from house to house? No.
To be sure children + sled = children going on the sled right? Yes.

Is the third thing more connected to Christmas? No. Related to gifts? Assume no. Related to the use of streets improperly (e.g. to go on a sled)? No, but... To the parents of the children who let them go on the sled? A parent is the third thing. To the use of something improperly in order to play eith the sled? No. Relevant what is used to drag the sled? Yes. A dog? No.

Quick recap/rephraze: I like both sleds, children and parents, but last week a parent with a child on a sled annoyed me every morning and afternoon for days.

Ok so...did the parent drag the sled? He personally? Hope not something like he very slowly drove a car with the sled in which was sit his son? Did the three annoy you because: they don't allow you to easily going out from your house? They do something improperly on your garden? They accumulate snow somewhere?
Did they annoy you just when the sled is dragged and the child was on the sled? Did they go out every morning and every afternoon? To have fun? Make noise?

Did they relevantly wash out the snow from the sled? Relecant where did the snow/ice fall? Like you live in an apartment they live above you and they clean up the sled all over your house?

Rlevelant where they place the sled once they have used it? Above something relevant? Below? Near?

Relevant where the child was drag by the father? On the street? Did they create a place where to go with the sled? Did something happen at that time in the morning and afternoon? That the child and the father have fun with the sled? Is it relevant the cleaning of the street? Sled traces relevant?

Did they put snow in a place where you do not want snow in order the sled to slide?

...well...to be honest I'm feeling loke I'm having the solution right in front of me but cannot achieve it...so...the thing annoying you are traces which are in a particular place right? I infer, please correct me if I'm wrong, that the place where you do not want traces or has something important under the snowpack (e.g. electric wires/pipes?) or is a surface that must be maintained smooth, right? Eventually is there something like a sensor/alarm which is covered by the snowpack and makes noise every time the sled slide over it?

Do the traces annoy you because they are dangerous? Because you want to drag your son with a sled as well?

Ice skating relevant? Skatinkg relevant? Mean of transport = a conventional one? Ski?(e.g. you have the ski slope in the nearby? ) a mean of transport used in winter? A sled? Did the traces obstruct you physically (I mean the fact that they are lottle holes in the snow) or like indirectly (e.g. traces are used by people to avoid to get wet passing through the snow?)

When you go with the mean of transport are you somehow forced to go along the path? Is it dangerous? Do you cross the path? Is the path made on snow? Does ice form on the path? Is the path deep in the snow?

Like wjen you go out with your bike, the wheels are somehow caught by the tracks left in the snow by the sled? Is it relevant that there are always holes in the snow due to the tracks? Does it imply some differebce in temeperature? Formation of ice? Ice skating of the bycicle?

Is there a slippery substance under the sled?(you know like the one under ski)? Is the attrition of sled on snow relevant?

SPOILER:
The sled made tracks in the ice slush on the bike path, and then the slush froze. The tracks stayed there for days, as no new snow or thaw came. Cycling paralell to the tracks was quite annoying and risky, because if I got a wheel into one of the tracks, it could get caught on the edge when I tried to turn.
Thanks for playing.
