    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!

    Thread stretchers. There's a couple of threads over on DT which for some reason are ridiculously wide! No idea how to make them smaller/normal sized, but it's a real PITA having to scroll and scroll from left to right.

    What is wrong with my stomach? Sometimes it feels full to bursting but today it's like a bottomless pit. I had 2 Weetabix at 9.15 this morning but now I'm absolutely starving again

    This morning's 'Dontone's irritations'

    Getting emithers/seeing headlines about the following subjects -

    Pippa Thingy's wedding

    Cheryl Thingy's relationship/sprog/anything else remotely uninteresting about her, but needs to be reported.

    That Stephanie woman and that lad with the tattoos that keep breaking up/getting back together.

    I can't be the only one who really doesn't give a to$$ about these people. So why do the tabloids think that we want to know how much a toff's wedding is going to cost, or what daft name a celeb has given their baby?

    Or in other words............... WHO CARES?!?!?!?

    That's it for this morning Carry on.

    Biggest irritation so far today is my memory
    After 20+ years without a gate on my driveway I have built one to keep the dog in but I constanly get into my car and start it before remembering to open the gate

    It's usually a big picture. They get auto-resized on mine, so I don't always realise someone's posted a big picture (I think I've accidentally done it myself a couple of times). The only time they stretch is when I quote/use advanced reply, which is why I can now see the cowgirl picture on here is big. Wouldn't have noticed otherwise.

    Sometimes, when I'm waiting for a delivery or a tradesman, I get that old advert stuck in my head. "He waits. It's what he does."

    Husband so peeved with Pippa thingy, he found TV could play Kerrang.

    Me, I am now getting to the back teeth with Kerrang being drowned out by power tools as he's making something.

    I need another pile of books to read!

    I come home from a few days away and despite cleaning the house before i go, it needs cleaning again when i come home.

    My youngest Son is still at home but he's working all week. I dont expect him to scrub floors or anything but he just dumps things anywhere. He knew we were coming home today and today he's not at work so at least he could have tidied his things up.

    Walked in to a muddy pair of trainers in the middle of the kitchen floor and his dirty work bag on the work top instead of being hung up. His mail slung across the other worktop. I dont think i'm asking much.... after all, he doesnt do it when i'm at home.

    We are going to have to have words.

    Why are they so rude to complete strangers?
    In my day we reserved that strictly for our parents.

    Where I live, there are some HA houses on another street, which back onto the car park area where they and myself park cars. Two of these families are horrible. The boys who are not teenagers say F Off to anyone passing them - we have rights to walk past them to enter our homes. The girls, who are teenagers run about and scream! You don't scream like this when you are at high school.. One of the mothers has confronted me at my work with a pack of lies. The police and HA are well aware of these families.

    One son, adding things to my shopping list, added protractor & compasses to shopping list. He's lost his & hadn't thought to ask little brother for a loan.
    Elder brother, resitting, asked directly if he needs these too, goes "oh, yeah..."
