    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

    People who post graphs and images at ridiculously large sizes (yes, I've done it myself but I try to shrink the image down before posting it) and it makes the thread page so wide it goes over the edge of the screen.

    I've got a 23" monitor so I have the zoom at 150% in Chrome so I can read everything clearly, so when someone posts an image like that, it means I have to drop my zoom level down to something uncomfortable

    Having to go back into town again to sort my ruddy ISA's and then being told it was unnecessary for me to go today and that they could have all been sorted last time I went

    Well Nationwide, if you had given me someone who actually knew what they were doing last time instead of some 12 year old who had to keep running to his boss to find out......
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    Slice the pie's current review engine: it's borked.

    Sometimes it loses connection and you have to start watching / listening to the video / song again, but you can't copy & paste your review in - you. have. to. type. it. in. again. from. scratch.

    (Extra .'s are to show how p-eed off it makes me.)

    And they wonder why I don't use their site that often - I really wanted to review about $2 a day with them, but at this rate it's not worth it.

    Today's 'dontone's irritations'

    It was a nice morning, this morning, so I decided to do the bedding & peg it out.
    All went went, until I adjusted one of the pegs one one of the sheets...........and the line snapped.
    Cue me having to wash the stupid sheet again.
    Then I had to post a parcel, and the ticket printer in the post office decided to break down. So I had to wait for the post lady to set up the other till to print my proof of posting & parcel stickers. It wasn't her fault, but I could tell that she was getting annoyed with the stupid machinery as well
    Then on the way home, I bumped into a bloke who walks 3 dogs near our house. He's a nice bloke, but he's one of these who you can't get away from. You tell him that you have to go, and he follows you - even though he was originally going the other way. Luckily, he spotted someone else and went to talk to them. Good job he did that 'cos I was busting for the lav
    That's enough for today.

    Conflicting weather reports for my holiday. Varies from 20c to 26c. At least I have 22kg luggage allowance as 20c for me is trouser weather.

    I am cold in the mornings.
    Don't really want to turn the heating on, even for a short time in the mornings, but might have to.
