    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!

    What's a Twizzler?

    Isn't that something made by Bernard Matthews and banned from school canteens?

    My bus journey home....

    First off I had a choice of two buses and for some reason my dumb brain chose the more expensive option. Then after seeing the cheaper option leaving the depot immediately I sat for another 10 minutes waiting for the bus to move....last person gets on and guess what? On a non full bus he decides to plonk himself next to yours truly, he also decides he needs two thirds of the seat assuming he must be some sort of giant I check and no this is no giant, you would have no need to sell your cow at market, buy some magic beans and grow a bean stalk to visit him. Anyway then the traffic decided to be hyper slow and busy as well just to rub it in. I sat there squashed up against the window with a face like Grumpy Cat thinking in my head "no it's fine I don't mind sitting on the window sill you just take the seat".....

    My irritation....I don't want to moan about the rain....but I'm going to.
    I don't mind the rain but when it's warm as well and you have to wear a coat it's a pain. Plus me wellies really make my feet hurt so I decided to walk round the lake as it's hard paths and I thought I'd get away with trainers. Wrong. Massive path-wide puddles

    The pre-cut salad I like has now been put in a resealable bag. What's the point of that? It goes brown approximately 10 minutes after you open the bag, so if you try to save it for tomorrow it'll be minging.

    Not exactly. I sometimes get it into my head that if I don't eat everything now someone will steal it or it'll go off, so I have to eat it all while I have the chance. It's one of my more annoying compulsions. It's worse on the days when my food's delivered and I suddenly have all this food in front of me.

    I cannot enter a crowded shop, I think all the people will take all the oxygen, Same with crowds.
    I am terrible with escalators, I just cannot use one if anyone else is near me. Not a good thing in many places that I have to go.
    So we are all different.

    Full of germs

    Just as likely to get food poisoning from one those as you are reheated rice

    Then if I do get disciplinary, my union rep will help me as the S&D bug I had in early June, we are told to stay away from work and in no circumstance, to think about going to work. Plus about seven others had the bug and a primary school closed for a day - a Friday as many kids had it.

    I will be irritated and annoyed if the x-ray comes back normal. So what is causing me to have this pain???

    Its on just one leg (on the bone) and the pain doesn't subside when resting now. Another night I was awake with pain. SS are usually on both and flare up when doing the activities that aggravate them . I think the work shoes which I wear and we are not allowed to wear different ones don't help. I love to wear insoles, but in the winter, need to wear two pairs of socks as its freezing. Two pairs and insoles are too tight. Next size up in the shoes are like boats! Then my work's floor is tiles similar to this and other shops have this type of flooring which, we believe are kinder to feet.


    I did see a podiatrist aged up to 12 as got flat feet and walked at a way that the outer edges of the heel of shoes wore out fast. The insoles were made from rigid plastic which were about half the length of my feet. I got blisters where the insoles ended in the middle of my feet. Plus useless in hot weather - when we had it!
