    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

    Know what you mean about the shop annoyances. Superdrug is another one, you can't buy a tube of toothpaste without being asked if you would like their special offer fragrances, which are often about 40!

    Greggs amuse me when you buy a sausage roll for (now) 1 and they say you can have a hot drink with that to make a 2.50 meal deal - when the individual items would only total 2.

    But my real pet hate is shops that ask if they can send you an e-receipt... pure marketing ploy to get hold of your email address and then bombard you with spam for ever more.
    I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe

    Thanks to one son deciding to do a bit of plastering, the loo is covered in dust, along with the floor, sink, soap & loo roll.

    Frankly the minor crack in the ceiling plaster was less fuss.

    The money being ****ed away on Brexit, wrap around in a lot of newspapers which probably cost a fortune telling us to prepare for Brexit by going to the gov website, a website that Cummings is using to collect data on people. I mean how exactly are we supposed to prepare for Brexit considering we do not even know what sort of Brexit it will be yet?

    Only English language TV stations in foreign hotels are bloody news channels. Have the tv on to wind down before bed.

    However, discovered that Netflix and Sky Go (not the on demand stuff) works!

    Sharing a caravan with an elderly daily mail reading rabid brexiteer.
    Prefer to wait until after my cornflakes for the diatribes to start.

    Is it because they can't be arrised to get up early enough to eat breakfast, so everyone else has to put up with them doing it?

    It's drivers treating their car as an extension of their living room that annoy me.
    Driving requires more than minimal concentration. . .
