    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    If you get very good at standing on the wobble cushion, you can progress to a wobble board, which is much harder.

    A lot of them are annoying but this Morning I presume they have killed all the men and buried them somewhere and it was all just so patronising, I thought they were supposed to cover the news, even the weather woman was in on it.....

    Electronic cigarettes. This was a great opportunity to deal with one of the issues with regular cigarettes. Meaning the bad smell. They can make e cigs smell of anything they like so why do they all smell bad?
    Also i think they should be subject to the same restrictions as regular cigarettes. I dont want to have to put up with clouds of any type of horrible smelling smoke regardless to whether its bad for my health or not. We dont even know for sure that e cigs are safe anyway.

    Electronic cigs are covered by the same regulations as cigarettes in England and Wales ( and perhaps Scotland)

    They have no effect on the health of those that are not vaping

    The health risks to those that vape are not proven yet but cancer research suggest they are 90% healthier then cigarettes. That will do for me thanks

    As for the smell, my choice of fluid doesn't smell. Because our laws here haven't been updated, I'm allowed to use mine in the tea room at work, which I do after asking my colleagues if they minded. They don't because they said they can't smell it and I'm not puffing out huge clouds of vapor at them. They barely notice
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    It wasn't psychotropic; I just loved the smell!

    BBC Breakfast.....I found it really patronising and annoying this morning for some reason, was like watching Blue Peter with their patronising reports and cheesy music in the background.

    One of the things that annoys me is when, on the News, it's reported that some celeb has had an accident or fallen ill.

    If it were Joe Bloggs, it wouldn't get reported, would it?

    Ok, if they die, tell us that, but otherwise it isn't news as such.

    Similarly, news bulletins shouldn't include announcements that so-and-so is getting a divorce.
    It's not news, it's chit-chat, there's a difference.
    It's not even an interesting factoid.
