    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

    I couldn't decide if it was the seventh level bit or the oubliette!

    I seem to be losing chunks of time again. I think my explorations into how to move house when I can barely go outside might have broken the space-time continuum.

    I'm convinced that there's a couple in the town where I live.

    I can think of people I'd like to put in an oubliette and put a piece of heavy furniture over the trapdoor!

    I hate the way that cold weather makes my dog find more things to sniff at, I am standing there freezing my socks off and my nose is running like a mountain stream and he is happily sniffing at every tenth blade of grass.

    The reason I chose the username I did is because part of the reason I keep coming back here (despite the eventual brain-splat) is that trying to help people offsets my guilt about claiming benefits/not working--I contribute as a sort of penance.

    So I tried to help and I thought I'd actually made some progress with a certain poster...then he went right back to his usual nastiness a couple of hours later. I've tried, but I'm done. He can talk to himself next time he rejoins.

    I won't be responding to you again. I really do hope you get some help to improve your circumstances and your social skills and that you're able to get the things you want in the future.
