    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

    He should have said, "Pull yourself together!"





    Oh no, sorry, that should be curtains.
    Wrong joke.

    The Tesco ones all tasted of sweetener and chemicals. Really nasty. I think it was the Sainsburys ones I used to drink years ago that were OK. I'll give them a try when I'm next in a town with a Sainsburys


    How's the dry January going? And have you seen Ffrosses posts in the other place?

    Sainsbury's lemon & lime was what I had yesterday and tasted reasonable so might buy another bottle today.

    Dry January is still dry . Next week is half term and we're away for a few days, so I said I would allow myself a couple of cheat days, but probably more with crisps than alcohol I think. Today is day 13 for me, so going ok ....

    Saw one of Ffosse's posts a few days ago in the other place that I didn't understand, and it got removed. Don't know the full story as I don't go there a lot, but guess he was stressed about something and had a disagreement. I popped in there yesterday and saw he was logged on, so I'm guessing that he managed to stay out of jail!

    Edit - Now you've got me wondering what else he's been saying
    In fact I'm going to take a look .....

    Both the thread I was responding to last night and the user who started it have disappeared. Hope he's okay and gets whatever help he needs, as he's clearly struggling.

    Now I'm irritated because I've posted a non irritation on the irritating thread, and therefore apologise .....

    Yes, I saw that, and like Sleazy wasn't sure, so didn't comment. I suppose if he's posted on other threads he might be genuine, but, as you say, clearly in need of help.

    He has a kink about his small penis and likes to get strangers online to indulge him. I couldn't pm you to warn you so I had to report the thread

    I do think he's genuine. He's posted here before under different names. Unfortunately, he has anger management issues linked to a medical condition and would frequently become frustrated and lash out, leading to him being banned several times. It's a shame, because he clearly needs help and isn't getting it, but at the same time he can't expect to keep coming back here and being awful to people. I really wish he'd get the help he needs "IRL" instead of coming back here and ending up frustrated because we can't fix things for him.

    I don't know if it's a kink or if he just doesn't get the social etiquette surrounding talking about your nethers. Either way, I felt it was safer to ignore that bit. I only recommended seeing his doctor for the medical aspect he mentioned when someone else highlighted that part of his OP and would have left it there.
