    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

    Forums in general aren't as good as they used to be even a couple of years ago.
    I think in some cases the AE thing has been justified here.
    Multiple AEs talking to each other is taking the proverbial though IMHO.

    People here generally know that I've used a couple of other users in the past for different reasons, but mine don't talk to either me or each other!

    I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid .... If I get banned again, it's curtains!
    And I shan't return as a dog or chicken! Maybe a lizard .....

    I use my others if this one gets bother or hassle ... but 'you lot' who know about the others are 'ok' ... not you that I'd likely be laying low from....

    My gyne appointment was the first week in June and now postponed to third week in August! Its an absolute joke. The Leicestershire hospitals don't have a cancellation list and the reception staff are the rudest unsympathetic reception staff I have ever dealt with. I have been in pain since early Feb and I am getting fed up with it esp as its getting worse - both intensity and area of pain

    Though my grandmother and parents are happy to pay for anything done privately. Though I am very grateful of their generosity but its good money wasted and I feel sorry for women who are in the same situation as me but have no financial help. If these women turn out to have cancer etc and because they waited so long to see someone that its too late to do anything, they should be very angry with the NHS

    I'm irritated for the lady I see on the bus and around town sometimes.
    Aged 65, been in the UK since 18 months old, school here, worked here, gets pension from here in August, but only ever had an Italian passport.

    She's been told by The Home Office and The Italian Consulate that they don't know whether she needs to apply for 'settled status' here or not. Poor woman, no wonder she wanted to talk today, I would have screamed .... 64 years here.

    She asked the local Labour MP what she should do. His answer? "Blame the Tories"
    Senora ........ I am irritated on your behalf!

    Today I shall focus my ire on a son who is diligently gardening, with his headphones on.

    If I want him, he said, "phone", he'll "feel the buzz".

    Well, he hasn't. His father is feeling all neglected & ignored (as I've work to finish). Infuriating!

    I'm more than irritated with the git who clipped my car in Tesco's car park and just cleared off.

    I'll be looking out for a white car with some black streaks.

    When my farmer asked him about the streaks, he said they were 'go faster stripes'.
    He didn't explain it was all to do with making a fast getaway.

    Just heard a plane fly over my house which sounded suspiciously like it was powered by a merlin engine. My irritation is I didn't actually see it

    Deciding to move my money from a poor ISA.

    Confused by ISA, Stocks and Shares and now this PSA.

    All I know is I would rather not risk fixed as you never know when you need the money,

    No point in giving the 'people' a vote on the matter if the elected body is allowed to then overturn that result.

    How does that work?
    So some people have a few different accounts, but it's really one person & they get their AE's to have a chat to each other? Like... puppets? Punch & Judy style?

    Nahhhh you're having me on.

    That's a worry!
    I think we should show a little compassion though coz maybe they are lonely or poorly & it might bring them some comfort, maybe? I dunno.
    I get lonely sometimes but not ... that lonely.
    It's basically like talking to yourself. I hope that never happens to me
    You don't know though! One minute you can be ticking along quite nicely & then wham, down you go. Could happen to anyone!
    Still... live & let live, I'll talk to anyone. I'm not fussy
    Smile... It'll confuse em.

    I do quite often talk to myself out loud though
    I talk to the car a lot. Well... he's like family!
    I sing, I backchat to the radio when there's a hot debate going on or whenever I disagree with anything.
    I swear at other drivers whilst smiling sometimes, that's a bit weird, or so my daughter tells me.
    I'm quite careful in public though, most of the time
    Smile... It'll confuse em.
