Selecting and deleting items in mail Apps
I know some of you know this, but I guess most of you who do know this will get it wrong most of the time.

When you are selecting items in the mailbox in Mail, you drag the mouse downwards or upwards; to drag it to the trash, you drag it sideways until the envelope icon comes up and then drop it on the 'deleted messages' folder.

[Editor's note: There are a multitude of ways to do both of these (select, delete) tasks in mail; these are just two of the more interesting ones. The behavior that seems most unusual to me is the up/down drag select; I keep expecting it to move the item!]
