    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

    When someone else's dog barks at my dog first, I am somehow to blame when my dog starts barking back

    I thought that I had found an episode of Columbo that I'd never seen but it was just that the description of the episode was totally wrong

    Dad bought me an ankle support wrap for my leg pain just above my ankle. Helps with the pain, but I can't wear it with any shoes, including slippers. Yet the packaging shows a foot wearing the wrap in a shoe.

    I'm don't want to spend more time off sick. Hopefully, my employer will treat it as an re-occuring absence for the same problem though its lower down. The leg problems never went away fully.

    I have no idea what it could be. I don't want to immobile as my poor dad will have my mum as well with a bad leg. Her's is much worse - had knee arthroscopy to repair torn cartilage two weeks ago and awaiting hip replacement on the same leg.

    Why does the ipad keypad keep replacing the letter you type with the alternate character on that key? I am sick of having words full of numbers and symbols.

    This can lead to some very strange autocarroting going on!

    I know a few people having the same problem, not only is it frustrating for the person using the device, it's also blooming irritating trying to decipher a seemingly coded message

    It also sucks yer battery dry very quickly I'm told. I haven't installed it on my devices yet and I'm not going to until I absolutely have to

    Typical Sunday morning around these parts is still sticking in my craw

    Broken glass, half eaten takeaways and spewings on the pavements all over the place just to show that the local teenagers had their usual 'wonderfull' time.

Apple are trying to take over the world

    Can't decide if I am more irritated by posters asking a question that has been asked 100's of times, or posters dragging up a long forgotten old threads.
