    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!

    To be fair, they were a bit different from a simple house fire that has taken on a political theme with arms and legs.

    I didn't think there were that many troll-related posts to delete. Two full pages worth have gone. That's why I thought someone had deleted their posts too.

    Just had another look and the post count has dropped another 10 despite there being new posts. There's no more troll posts, so someone's definitely having a clear out.

As far as I know a forum member couldn't delete all of their own posts, only remove the content?

    It's definitely not the troll posts. They're (mostly) already gone (there's a few borderline ones left) and there weren't that many to begin with.

    Gender inequality. Particularly how office dresscode demands that men wear formal shirt, trousers and shoes while the womenfolk can pitch up in pretty much whatever they want. Most looked like they'd dressed for the beach

    The window seal still hasn't arrived and my makeshift cardboard seal keeps coming loose. The cardboard is being sucked inward (I think it's because the air con's sucking air out of the room, so there's a pressure differential). So even though the air con should be able to drop a room twice the size by something like 15 degrees C, it's struggling to drop it by 3 or 4 degrees.

    I'm irritated with myself for spending so much money this month. I just realised my credit card bill is about £500. Granted, 3/5 of that was the air con, but the rest of it is down to restlessness. I spend money when I'm anxious, for some reason. Really need to stop.

    I hate how even my watered down opinions on here get jumped on like they do, I even got the blame for a rude thought that was in someone else's head

    BTW I too buy stuff when stressed. I was hoping to reduce my stuff burden while living here but have instead just bought more and more

    It's a bit ridiculous. I've got rid of so much stuff--clothes and books, mostly--but every now and then I just lose all self-control. It's mostly DVDs at the moment. At least they're second hand, that almost counts as money saving.

    I seem to have responded to my frustration about not having enough space by...uh, buying more furniture to stuff into the too small space. I've just spent £100 on furniture and little storage boxes--I'm utterly obsessed with boxes at the moment. I think I'm turning into a cat!

    It's beautifully cool and breezy outside, but my house is still a sauna. Currently trying to decide which is worse--being too hot or potential bug infiltration. It's hard being me.

    I decided that if I put the windows on the ventillation clip and made sure there were no gaps around the nets, that would let the air circulate but there's be less chance of anything inviting itself in.
