    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

    I get NHS dental treatment, but have to pay. A few weeks ago when I had a check up (£21-60), the dentist cleaned them at the same time.

    I love the fact that my washing machine beeps to tell me it's finished.

    I am not sure if I am irritated with myself for getting coffee and cake for a third day in a row

    I blame the fact the new office is much closer to many branches of Greggs and my new contactless credit card which means I get all this food free

    I didn't mind the washer-dryer beeping, except that it sounded so proud of itself and then handed me wet clothes. It reminds me of this:

    Wouldn't it be great if you could reboot a brain by turning it off and on again?

    oh, hang on.......that's called 'sleep', isn't it?

    I bought some over-door hooks. They don't fit properly (my own fault for not measuring). They also look like they're very happy to see me and it's a little intimidating (I'm a lesbian, we don't usually have to deal with that sort of behaviour).

    I'm pretty certain that I posted at approximately 4am this morning on a totally harmless thread about what the last text you sent was. Did I dream it?

    Edit - Indeed has gone. There was also one that was about the Last Text That You Received which has disappeared too. The poster who started the threads is still here.

    Don't panic this is not one of my silly jokes! This actually happened 3 hours ago..

    Me) "Doctor Doctor I've come for my Flu Jab!"

    Doctor) "Is there any particular reason why you want a Flu Jab?"

    Me) "Yes, I don't want to catch Measles this Winter"

    Of course I didn't answer his question in this way as he didn't seem the sort of chap who would respond favourably to witty sarcasm.

    However I find it irritating that he put me in a position where I had to censor all my natural instincts and come up with a credible response. I finally settled on.."Uh well er..I have it every year"

    That's all Folks!

    I'm awful for panicking and giving inappropriate answers. I probably would have told him I have a needle fetish or I heard they were in fashion this season or something.

    I can't work it out Colin. I mean why else would you want a Flu Jab if not to prevent you from catching Flu? I daren't ask for a Hip Replacement for fear of waking up to a new pair of feet.

    I've hidden them in a drawer until I can give them away. They kept looking at me.


    And I have a new irritation: people who use speakerphone when it's just them talking, as if their boring conversation is so important we should all listen to it.

    Re. the speakerphone...... Do you mean in public?
    I don't in public, but I do at home, because my damaged wrists make it a bit painful to hold a phone to my ear for any length of time.

    Well, I had a look, and I can't say that 'happy to see me' was the first thought that I had!

    I just thought 'coat hooks'!

    And quite stumpy little coat hooks at that!

    Don't say that, you'll give them a complex! They'll end up getting hook extension surgery.
