    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!

    Twit accused me of taking a photo of his van. I had to raise the phone to see the screen in the sun.

    He is a twit for parking on a junction with a third of it on the side road

    ignorant **** of a teenager on a bike

    he was not riding it when I walked past with the dog, just sitting talking to his mates, just as I got passed them I heard him say 'watch the dog go crazy when I make a move' and sure enough he did a trick and my poor dog went crazy, they all laughed

    Shopping for new spectacle frames. I don't like the fashion of thick dark frames. They do not suit my face nor for many that buy them.

    You may say, keep your existing ones - I will be without any glasses til Weds or Thurs. I have some spare ones, but the prescription is 4-5 years old. Can't see through them when driving now.

    At my parents as they gone out for the day. Sitting around their garden and realised I left my Kindle at home. It took as long to close all the windows and doors than to drive home and back

    A bird hit my window this morning and I jumped out my skin. Now, in addition to being dizzy/nauseous from the heat, I'm also twitchy. (The bird was okay, it flew off after. I'm hoping it was either a) the one that's driving me up the wall with its incessant monotone tweeting or b) the one that used my sheet as a toilet yesterday.)

    I'm starting to think it's unhealthy for families to live close together for too long. Yes, it's wonderful that they can provide a support system for each other, but they also seem to build up a store of long-running arguments and unresolved slights.

    I've given in to the air con unit. I'm mostly annoyed that I dithered so long, so I ended up choosing the one unit that offered next day delivery rather than shopping around properly. I also ordered a window seal, but that's not coming until next week, so I'll have to make a temporary seal out of cardboard. Should've done as I was told and ordered one on Thurs.

    It's quiet in here and it's making me feel guilty for whinging so much!

    A load of "new" users have decided I'm a reporting addict with multiple AEs and are now disrupting a thread where mentally ill folk support each other. I like having the thread to fall back on, but it's looking like I'm going to have to stop using it so they stop turning a safe space into a hostile environment. What the hell's wrong with people? Attack first, worry about whether you're wrong later...or never.

    I don't think the forum team will be able to help. I've seen this too many times before. Now that they've decided I'm whoever it is that p'ed them off, they'll read everything I post looking for something to report and harrass me to try to make me say something worth reporting until I either leave or get banned. Looks like I tempted fate with #1649. I don't think I'm going to be around much longer.

    Noisy probably drunk neighbours who are still shouting and chanting at 10pm. I guess having parents who weren't big drinkers and being married to a 99% tee-totaller, I don't get the necessity to roll out crates of alcohol because the sun is shining. Mercifully we've been spared the smell of a thousand BBQs though.

    The sad thing about this incident is that it has happened, not on DT, where it would be bad enough despite the expected cut and thrust, but on a very long-standing thread set up for vulnerable people with mental health issues, where they can discuss their feelings, problems and issues in a safe, non-judgemental and accepting place. This thread is the fourth reincarnation of a thread that has been running for three years.
    The thread has a number of regulars and dozens of people who read without posting, but who hopefully realise they are not alone.

    Some 'newbies' have started poking jibes at the issues that people have been mentioning.
    The problem is that this could seriously affect some people's wellbeing, and drive them away.

    It is really cruel. There has been nothing like this before.
    I can only assume that the people concerned have real problems of their own, which we would be happy to help them with.

    I always try to find the upside and make light of situations especially when it's something fairly trivial but SIL is doing my head in!

    At least on this thread, posters have a little whine and a moan and get over it!!!

    Woken up by screaming kids at 6:45am. I know its daylight and sunny, does not mean the kids need to run about that time and waking others up.

    Crows. Why can't they just sing nicely like the other birds?

    All the other birdsong is quite peaceful and relaxing then every so often this massive CAWWWWW just cuts through.
