    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    Post your irritations!

    I was waiting at the bus stop today when the bus drove straight past instead of stopping. This despite two of us putting our hands out to stop the bus. It wasn't even full or anything. Must have been a random bus-driver moment "oh I don't fancy stopping at that stop"

    Bit annoying, as it was absolutely brass monkeys with the cold wind blowing.

    So, rest up!

    I've managed to get through the whole day without eating an actual meal (I don't suppose chocolate and prawn crackers count). I'm now feeling a bit blergh.

    All the bugs seem to have woken up with the warmer weather and I can't open my window because they're trying to mount an invasion.

    I have the attention span of a meercat with ADHD lately.

    I think there's a place for both threads. Sometimes I have things on my mind that don't irritate me but make me feel other things and the thoughts thread is a good place to put them. I just could never be bothered to look for it

    Not irritating as such but feel sorry for..

    There is a man with Downs or similar who goes into my work he gets one thing and never had enough money.
    He kicks up a fuss and asks could he only pay 2 for 5 box of chocolates. If we did that we would be given the sack if we did sell the chocolates or anything less than price.

    Then he called my colleague a f***ing b*itch. As he had his address on the front of his wallet, my manager rang the care home he lives. They will deal with him

    If he wasn't disabled we would have him banned. Afraid to do that has would be discriminating him due to his disability

    No, you'd be banning him due to him being abusive. Most stores have a zero tolerance stance towards customers being violent or abusive towards their staff these days. Don't let him play the disability card like that. I have on occasion known disabled people to be banned from stores, due to disruptive behaviour.

    I've tried to watch four or five different things on Netflix and can't get past the first 5-10 mins before it either bores or annoys me into turning it off. I even had to give up on Fawlty Towers after deciding Basil was a total !!!! and I couldn't bear to listen to him any more (I'm sure I used to like Fawlty Towers). I've now moved on to Life. Surely I can't go wrong with a bit of Attenborough?
