    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 6:20 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

    Shampoo and shower gel combined ďfor menĒ. Doesnít seem to be any equivalent for women.

    I donít care, I am going to use it anyway. It smells quite nice and was reduced to 75p (thatís the important bit ).

    I will let you know if I grow a beard, or anything else I didnít have before!

    Superdry Sport shower gel is for hair and body. Itís in special offer in Boots right now for £2.63.


    We use the green one and itís really nice and a strong scent and a very thick quality gel so you only need a tiny amount and it doesnít make your hair feel like straw. Great for the gym even though itís a blokes toiletry I like it.

    This one is Palmolive Sport, with grapefruit and mint oils. Itís actually 3-in-1... body, hair and face. I used it this morning and itís really nice, not too masculine at all. I still used a bit of hair conditioner afterwards but can recommend it for ladies as well as men.

    A funny one. mother visiting and she like to do all the chores to the point of minor (caring) nagging such as telling me the sideboards are dirty, I am not washing plates/cups etc as soon as I use them and keeps dusting and hoovering, I do have a little bit of clutter but I am neat and tidy!

    To be fair shes like that at her home too, even growing up dad used to tell her off as she would smudge the tv by putting polish on it and wiping and it would be worse than it started! And kept telling her when they got a lcd tv not to wipe it with a normal cloth!

    My work normally closes on Bank Holidays at 6pm. This Monday, closes at our standard Monday time -8pm. Why? It always goes dead after 4pm as customers presume we close at 4pm. Other shops in the prescient closing at 4-5pm.

    Going to be a very long and boring shift

    Some idiots on bus this morning, already people standing and another bus due 2 minutes later, these 2 people with prams decide to get on and one shouts abuse at an elderly lady and a woman for not moving as she has "priority" when the elderly woman objects she gets told "at least I pay for my ticket" then blocks one of the women from moving and when that woman complains her and her companion start saying abuse again whilst turning to others on bus and talking about "some people" Apparently the fold down area is for buggies and not people according to her.

    Wasn't a young woman etiher, must of been a woman with her grandchild

    She had no care that she just made many people stand because she wanted to bring her buggy on the busiest bus in the morning! Despite having buses every 5-10 minutes!

    Trying to book a campsite for the weekend, having left it far too late as usual.
    The sites are showing availability until I try to book at which point they magically get full. Apart from the ones that do have availability but a no bull breed rule. Gitdog is an !!!! but he is the friendliest least aggressive dog I have ever owned.
    Been on the website for hours now. Looks like I'm staying home.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    If you do find somewhere Elisen, I am sure that if you posted the location on here then there would be an unofficial Gitdog fan club calling to meet him.

    Good luck with finding somewhere
    BTW have you ever thought of sending your tales of life with Gitdog to a magazine.

    Too expensive for me. Was meant to be meeting up with a group of friends for a seaside trip, but it's too far to drive there and back in a day and I can't find a campsite within 50 miles . I just overlooked it was a bank holiday, and the weather forecast is sending more people forth.
    Ah well, can't be helped.

    Customer coming into my shop at 2 minutes to 4pm (we close at 4pm) wanting to see if we had any paddling pools. Why leave it that late? We sold out and she wanted to know what other shops would have them. All we could think of were all closed at 4pm. Have no sympathy for people who expect something with little time to do this
