I can smell nearby garbage cans down to their location and approximately how full they are even before I know that they're there.
I think I picked this one up after a couple years working on the cleaning staff at a theme park.

I can catch things that I knock off shelves in mid-fall. But I don't know if everyone else does that all the time, or if it is my minor superpower!

I'd like things to go back and forth from "ARGH!" to "WOOO!" more frequently. - Kamikaze Midget

No superpowers here, but I have long wanted a minor superpower:
The ability to cast my voice into one or more selected vehicles to give people a critique of their driving ability, or rather, the lack thereof.

it works when I click it, failing for others.
I'm right when i describe how something probably works and when somebody goes to try it or digs deeper, they find I was correct.
I have Faith Healed an Apple IIe in front of others. My landlady just got her son an old Apple. It wouldn't boot. I strode up to it, shouted "Heal!" and slapped my hand down on the case. I then turned the switch and it booted.
I also rarely get sick. At most, I get a cold each year or a 1 day flu. I have always been this way.
I'm also a good shot, despite not really practicing. Not sniper level, just functionally good with BB guns, paintball guns, pistols and rifles.
I'm also lucky. I've made some really good rolls in D&D. I did not work exhorbitantly hard in finding a job out of college or in leaving that job 14 years later. (both times, the employer contacted me). I bought my first computer with money I found on the ground.

If I just get up and leave, without thinking about it, whenever I get to the Metro, my train will be pulling in.

Another one: I can make snarky comments at a dinner table that everyone EXCEPT the target will hear and laugh at.
Hmm...it sounds like I'm becoming minor-superpower Superman here...all kinds of litle crappy powers.
Maybe I'm not human, but actually a Craptonian!

Of course...most people are listening to CDs and mp3 players these days...
Still, I think a kind of override device should be available to First Responders and Emergency vehicles- "Don't you hear my siren, you self-absorbed moron? GETOUTATHEWAY!"

I also have the magic technology fixing power.
One example: a company had a flakey network that would suddenly go down without apparent cause; they called me in as a consultant to resolve it. Their offices were on the 12th floor of a building and the first time I arrived they noted that the network had just come up 30 seconds earlier. Because this was an old AppleTalk network from years ago there wasn't much in the way of useful diagnostic information so after doing whatever poking around I could, I eventually told them there was nothing I do and to call me the next time it went down.
They did, and again, just as before, the network came back up mere seconds before I arrived. After this happened the 4th time the receptionist noticed that when the elevator arrived at their floor with me in it, poof, the network was instantly back up.
They continued to call me in every few months for the next couple of years to work my magic. It always felt like a consulting failure since I never was able to figure out what was going wrong, but at least I could fix it and bill an hour.
