    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

    Be careful folks, and hold your shoes a little bit tighter when you tuck them in tonight.

    People throwing human food waste out for the birds to eat in places where my dog can gobble it up as we walk along the pavement

    I don't mind them throwing the food, just do it away from where dogs can get at it, not all human food is good for dogs and it's hard work keeping my eyes peeled to the ground hoping to spot something he might eat before he does.

    This is a couple of years ago now but one day when we were out Bailie found a carrier bag with individually plastic wrapped chicken pieces in. And they were off. There were 2 of us and we struggled to get it off her, she still managed to swallow about 10 of them before we did. The smell was so bad that my poor friend was stood next to the lake heaving

    We went home and Bailie proceeded to puke all morning, all these individually wrapped chicken pieces. The whole house stank of rotten chicken. She didn't get an upset tum afterwards, I suppose because they were all bagged. But that just goes to show how idiotic some people are. Why chuck a bag of manky chicken in the bushes? You wonder what goes through people's heads sometimes

    I am irritated by bras
    Why is it in most places the bras available are full of foam? If you actually have boobs they are around your chin if you put one of these on, and the alternative a "bralet" a wispy thing that will not prevent you poking someone's eye out in cold weather or looking like you are doing the milkshake if moving at speed.

    Idiot child has not ordered his pills.
    The unstable epileptic has enough to get him to school tomorrow but after that? Either I sort him the meds or pick him up off whatever floor he goes over on, or both.

    What bit of "check your meds" you now-over-18-&-nominally Adult did you not get?

    It was a bloke in an Indian call centre, who claimed to be from our energy supplier and said he needed to confirm a few details before they generate our next bill.

He had all of the company address details and our MPAN number, and just wanted me to give him a meter reading and confirm our meter number...
    I was on the verge of giving it to him when I suddenly thought "that's not right, our energy supplier has it's call centres based in the UK" and hung up.


    A bit of googling reveals it's a scam, they trick you in to giving them your meter number and then have all the details they need to change your energy supplier
    Because they sound so genuine you go along with whatever they're telling you and end up in a contract you can't get out of.


    I didn't even suspect it was a scam because it didn't occur to me how a scam involving meter numbers would work
