    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

    Edit.... sorry, should have said, trotted in Tooting.
    Got my Sarf London areas mixed up!
    (I prefer clip-clopping in Clapham, though!
    Tommix, you'll have to ride him in Clapham!)

    When the next tissue in the pop-up tissue box doesn't stay up

    Mostly because the box is too deep to start with and the plastic that normally holds the tissue up is not strong enough to resist the gravity dragging the tissue back down.

    Work. You get an enquiry that you are not fussed about. So you work out the quote and double it and you still get the job. But still not fussed.

    I'm starting to think that the worst thing about agoraphobia isn't the lack of independence, the financial insecurity or the patchy access to medical treatment--it's the inability to walk to the shops and buy a bag of Maltesers when you really need a bag of Maltesers (or three).

    If I get desperate, I can ask a family member to drop them in. Otherwise, my shopping's coming in a couple of days.

    I'm mostly irritated with being unable to do it. It's such a simple thing--walking to the shops to get something you have a yearning for. Used to do it without thinking. Now it might as well be on the Moon.

    I have to deal with another human being tomorrow. We hired them to do something and it wasn't done properly (they skipped an essential prep stage, meaning the fix has come undone). I suspect they're going to offer to redo it, but I can't trust them to work on our house again after they skipped such an obvious step (which I asked them about several times). I want them to refund me part of their fee to go toward someone else fixing it, since they didn't actually do the job I paid them for. This is going to be a deeply uncomfortable conversation and a) I'm bad at confrontation and b) I'm already on edge, so there's a very real chance I'm going to end up in a mess.

    But pigeons can fly, surely that would be a quicker mode of transport than catching a ferry? Lazy scrounging birds.

    This forum is so annoying and frustrating....they wonder why people don't post
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...
