    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

    Had to take Gitdog to the out of hours vet last night. As it's a specialist hospital who provides the cover, it was 120 to get through the door and he's had to stay in so the bill is already at the 1K mark.
    I'm definitely in the wrong line of work.

    The chemist has started taping shut the box containing the strips of tablets, you need a knife or scissors just to get the box open then you struggle to get the pill out of the bubble strip.

    Who'd be ill?

    Bring back pills in bottles

    Yes but you only have to open the bottle once, after that you can just screw the cap on a little bit.

    Final "bill" from Three, saying I am in credit and need to phone them to arrange a refund.

    Why? I think they overcharged me anyway since I closed the account 2 months ago and took payment a few weeks ago!

    Well, when I was small maybe ...

    The best tasting crisps are almost invariably the highest in calorific content ... with a secret ingredient included to make you want to eat more of them. Walkers paprika flavour for example ....

    For the past two days I've been looking for my pair of crocs (shoes, not reptiles).

    As a last resort I've posted on here because Murphy's law says that once I have said I can't find them anywhere, I will.
