    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

    Of course, my 'Which Blue Peter presenter are you?' thread is in a different category altogether.
    I promise I won't start threads on 'Which newsreader are you?', 'Which historical person are you?', 'Which cake are you?', etc. etc.

    Yes. Tied to an ironing board is only the start for some folk.

    Maybe everyone else is like me and cannot see the appeal of dried up, twice cooked cakes.

    No wonder they're called 'petit gateaux' in French.

    Teenage lads running around in my shop around 6pm swearing at us and customers. At least one was carrying a can of some alcoholic drink. It's half term around here and clearly got nothing better to do. I hate this and its offputting. Police don't seem to give two hoots

    I'm house-sitting this week. The owners just received a message on the answering machine next to the TV. It now beeps loudly every ten seconds. Obvs I can't listen to the message, and there's no other way of silencing the beep. I've got another four days of this! #FirstWorldProblems

    So much for DPD being better than Yodel. Apparently he tried to deliver my parcel and left it in my designated safe place. No knock, no card, didn't designate a safe place, parcel AWOL.
    Originally posted by Sunny Intervals
    I think I might have had similar off DPD but I think in that case they still had the parcel, they are all a bit hopeless at times, I just wonder if it is the pressure on the delivery blokes to do to many deliveries in a set time, one thing is for certain it is not like it used to be with Postman Pat, he would never survive in this current climate, Oh I have a funny Geordie Postman Pat video....it is rude with swearing, bad swearing so don't listen if offended but first I need to go to the boardroom to do some IT

    as an aside I can guarantee a IT fault will come in just when I have made a cuppa

    anyway this Postman Pat is very rude!!!! so don't watch if you are offended

    He even had a go at an abandoned trolley on our way home from Aldi and a poor little dog that just happened to be passing went into shock
    He is now standing on the windowsill staring at that cat again so I am just waiting for the next round.

    Customer services managed to get a hold of him and he was still in the area, so he came back to deliver it properly.



    The best bit was that he uploaded a photo of where he's left it. It's not part of my building. I literally have no clue where it is. I'm guessing it's the bin store of one of the houses.


    The worst bit is that I'm now shaking and trying not to cry and/or vomit because I had to go outside on my own to look for him. Mental health issues are endlessly irritating.


    The Postman Pat video was brilliant. I loved the "not !!!!ing eBay again!". I suspect my old postie had the same response when I got a bit carried away with secondhand books and DVDs on Amazon.

    He has been a bit moody since the chemical neutering wore off and a certain lady dog along the road was in heat up until last week and that affected him badly as I think it would have been his first boost of testosterone from that side of life
    Vet thinks I am right not to get him neutered proper though as he would just turn into a whimpering wreck.
