    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

    There's nothing worse than cat pee in things, as a cat owner for 50+ years I've had a few disasters

    I can recommend Emulgel for the muscle

    Can't help with the toast but I can sympathise because my OH did the same thing a few days ago. I find keeping sliced bread in the freezer helps as it can be toasted frozen.

    Now I'm irritated because I got the title of this thread wrong - it should have been IV not VI.
    I'm not going to change it though, I'll leave it there to irritate others

    I got something (dust or pollen) in my eyes the other day and I can't stop rubbing at them and making the irritation worse...

    Now that I know it's become deliberate, it has stopped being irritating, and has morphed into 'quirky'!

    Boiler service at work this morning, I'm the only one due in and have to be there so someone finds out how to work the blessed thing

    Every so often it makes a sound like there is a lorry outside with engine running. I have tinnitus so sounds worse to me, hopefully I will find out how to stop this so it doesn't irritate the hell out of me.

    I washed one of the blankets on my bed (king size!) and hung it over a door to dry. It's big so it did kind of spill over on to the floor - one of the cats has puked on the bit that was on the floor!

    Resurrect the Vesuvius thread too, we can have this one for more minor irritations and that one for proper rage explosions. We can bet on which thread will get locked first

    People who think it's really funny to scare you by rattling the back of your chair when you're completely unaware that they're there.

    Had an answer phone message from my opticians to say that my new glasses are delayed to Tuesday.

    Back at work on reduced hours from tomorrow. No one bothers to inform me of any changes such as new policies, new locations for things in the back etc. Even when I say anything changed?
