    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 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.

    It irritates me that anyone should feel guilty about claiming something they are eligible for.

    It really isn't fair the way that all the publicity about 'scroungers' and the Government clampdowns on benefit fraud is making legitimate recipients of benefits feel guilty.

    The benefits system is there for a reason, after all. I'm sure the vast majority of recipients would rather they weren't in the health or financial situation they're in that necessitates having to claim.

    I have been watching re-runs of The Onedin Line, and it was terrible the way that people used to literally starve when there were no jobs, or if they couldn't work due to illness.

    I'm irritated because I've checked my usual threads and there's no more updates. I suppose that I shall have to sacrifice myself and have another coffee ..

    Didn't have time for breakfast so spent all morning fantasising about what I could get for lunch, and decided a sausage roll from the deli down the road would hit the spot. Lunchtime came and I merrily skipped down the road to discover it had closed for the week for half term, which not only seems like a pretty poor business strategy but means I'm now in a complete state of turmoil over what to get for lunch.

The vet said to take the cat back X weeks (can't remember how long) after she gives birth, unfortunately by this time she was pregnant again. After the second litter the decidedly unimpressed kitty wasn't allowed out of the house until the next visit to the vet.

    Ours would sit on the windowsill, letting out this deep, plaintive bellow in a desperate attempt to bring the boys to the yard. The boys were staying out of her yard, whether she liked it or not. Tart.

    I wish! Rocket basically wanders round the house trilling and yowling - especially at night. She is massively affectionate - especially at night and early morning.

    It's very, very noisy!

    People who haven't mastered the art of bagging shopping when using a self-service till.

    1 Bag on output side
    2 Scan item and put item in bag
    3 Pay
    4 Pick up bag full of items

    Why do some people scan the items and pile them up and then decide to spend 5 minutes bagging and holding up anyone else wanting to use the till?

    (OK I know there's steps missing above 1a tell till you are using your own bag 1b Unexpected Item in Bagging Area 1c Swear under your breath 1d Wait for assistant to confirm to the till that it really is a bag)
