    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

    The manager of my local Subway who has obviously told all the staff they need to upsell:

    "Do you want a footlong?" - No, hence the reason I asked you for a 6 inch sub only 5 seconds ago
    "Do you want extra cheese?" - No, if I want extra anything I'll ask for it
    "Do you want a drink?" - Not since you started serving rat p*** out of a fountain (aka Pepsi)

    To be fair, what I notice at mine is the staff can get swamped and forget, or people can change their mind or ask for extras when the sandwich is finished so the staff have to reopen it.


    That and they ask if people want salad and as its being put on people say "I don't/didn't want X on the salad" I have even seen people get agressive over having something put on the salad that they didn't want and demanding a replacement order.


    And at one point it was cheaper for certain subs to come with a drink, again once about a year ago saw a member of staff serving a teen boy tell him it was cheaper to get a school deal which would be 3 as otherwise it would be 4.20, the kid does so and tells his dad who asks why he has a cookie as he wasn't paying for that and the staff member explains and the dad gets rude with the staff member for confusing the kid and threatens to complain!

    Know what you mean about the shop annoyances. Superdrug is another one, you can't buy a tube of toothpaste without being asked if you would like their special offer fragrances, which are often about 40!

    Greggs amuse me when you buy a sausage roll for (now) 1 and they say you can have a hot drink with that to make a 2.50 meal deal - when the individual items would only total 2.

    But my real pet hate is shops that ask if they can send you an e-receipt... pure marketing ploy to get hold of your email address and then bombard you with spam for ever more.
    I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe

    Thanks to one son deciding to do a bit of plastering, the loo is covered in dust, along with the floor, sink, soap & loo roll.

    Frankly the minor crack in the ceiling plaster was less fuss.

    The money being ****ed away on Brexit, wrap around in a lot of newspapers which probably cost a fortune telling us to prepare for Brexit by going to the gov website, a website that Cummings is using to collect data on people. I mean how exactly are we supposed to prepare for Brexit considering we do not even know what sort of Brexit it will be yet?

    Only English language TV stations in foreign hotels are bloody news channels. Have the tv on to wind down before bed.

    However, discovered that Netflix and Sky Go (not the on demand stuff) works!
