    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

    Transport, waiting for a train and being first/second to arrive and when train arrives everyone barges past each other and you end up not getting a seat.

    When a bus is trying to pull out even with indicators on it can't as cars won't let it! So can be stuck for minutes!

    Onto 5th week or roadworks near me, the only time in those 5 weeks I have seen the workers is when the van is there and they are eating food in it, sometimes I can't work out how they set the timer, as yesterday it let a bus, a lorry and 4 cars through on my side of road, then didn't change for 5 minutes and let loads of cars through other side and didn't change even when that side of road was quiet.

    Doorbells that don't work.



    I'm a delivery driver, and the number of times I've rang a doorbell and hear nothing, so I have to bang the door.

    Also, thank you to the spammer who sends me daily emails inviting me to invest in student accommodation in Doncaster and Hull.

    The Home Office and its online payment system for visa application fees, options available are standard service and priority service (costs standard fee + 800).

    The system does not allow you to pay for the visa application fee (standard service covers this) and then add the priority service as an option nor does it let you pay using 2 different cards - you must pay the entire fee on one card.

    Home Office, when your website is as poorly set up as the Epic Games Store, you need to change careers fast
    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    I totally get the eating breakfast thing, wherever that may be.
    I don't get the eating after 10pm though.
    I'd be like "What d'you think you're doing? Stop it right now.

    I'm actually thinking of investing myself... in a toyboy
    I've been reading this book. It's called "The toyboy diaries"
    I couldn't put it down!
    Quite the eye opener.

    Both parent and I were asked today if we were seniors. She's 80 and looks younger, I'm in the middle aged bracket and am now a) seriously !!!!ed off and b) frantically gooogling clinics.

    Actually it is, as I think I am old enough to be their father! (which makes me feel old so more like the opposite effect than people might think!)

    On a day of action by school kids about climate change they have started well around here by vandalising the flower displays and setting fire to the rubbish bins at my local shopping plaza.
