    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

    Actually it is, as I think I am old enough to be their father! (which makes me feel old so more like the opposite effect than people might think!)

    On a day of action by school kids about climate change they have started well around here by vandalising the flower displays and setting fire to the rubbish bins at my local shopping plaza.

    Seeing adverts for Taylors coffee bags on the TV with the strap line "Why did nobody think of it before?"

    They did. They have been around for donkeys' years. I used to buy Lyons ones back in the early 1980's.

    Got to shell out 1,000 for dental treatment this afternoon. Having had an abscess a few months ago, my current dentist discovered that the previous practice I attended left 1/4 live root having done root canal work, so now have to have specialist treatment

    Yes I remember them way back too. Can't remember if they were Lyons or not, but I wasn't that keen.
    Mate of mine at work would always have a bottle of "Camp Coffee" I got quite a taste for the occasional cup of that.

    Banks that have stopped putting the sort code and account number on the bank card. Wanted to set up a membership via direct debit while I was away and couldn't because Nat "the helpful bank" West is apparently the only bank that no longer does this. And no I don't have the app on my phone as their security does not inspire me with confidence.

    ^ One (and probably the only) advantage of having the same bank account for 34 years is that I can remember the account number and sort code

    Nobody will employ me.

    I'll have to work for myself again (kicks the dirt & scuffs toe).

    Marks & Spencer turned me down! Okay I came 2nd but what use is that?
    Err hello... you employed that Philip Green bloke! I'm a cleaner love, it's not like I'm gonna run off with everybody's pensions!

    Natwest have never (or at least not in the past 20 years) put the account number on their debit cards, I don't know about now but in the late 90s/early 00s they were the only uk bank who didn't.

    I know this as at the time I used to process loan applications and 2 pieces of information we needed off every customer were sort code and acoount number which made Natwest a major PITA, even worse was when you got a particularly thick Natwest account holder who absolutely refused to accept that the 16 digit card number was not their account number.

    Have they not? I've been with them that long, shows how observant I am.

    I guess previously I used to get my now obsolete cheque book out and get it from that.

    Punctures.
    I came out of my gym yesterday to find one in my bike yesterday and had to walk about a mile, half of it uphill to the bike shop. Where they charged me 12.50 for a new inner tube! [including fitting] Felt like telling them I only used to earn 15 a 40 hour week when I started work 44 years ago, But didn't.
