    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

    At work, the lottery terminal is out of action. Despite several printed signs saying that we apologise that the lottery terminal is out of order around the tills and the stand thing where the game slips are kept. Customers still wanted to buy tickets and cash in scratchcards. When we explained to then that our lottery terminal is broken - a few got irate. Yet at top of the road, about 2 minutes walk, there is a 24/7 shop attached to a petrol station that has a lottery terminal.

They like to make you waste time queuing.

    If it is actual damp you will know if mould starts growing. Have a look around at walls, ceilings etc incase theres a leak. I know its all obvious. Get a decent air freshener like the febreze ones. You can spray that on furniture and curtains.

    Blasted google has taken to putting the wrong postcodes up for places I need to get to for work and sending me to the wrong side of the city.

    I need to go low tech and return to misreading maps instead.

    Alter egos - multiple accounts on here.


    Some are harmless - people who don't want to use their main account for a particular topic in case they're recognised. Or when people are being targeted by other posters so want/need to give their main account a break.

    Then there's the people who keep getting PPRd and coming back as a new and irritating version of themselves - hi kronks.

    Or the trolls who start off a topic to get a reaction then create other a accounts to back themselves up. Those can be amusing when people forget who they're posting as, but they're generally nasty pieces of work.

    Health issues. Getting older is like a permanent hell. I miss the deluded feeling of safety that youth provides. Everyday now starts with me wondering, what next?
