    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

    A bit strange though, travelling by bus at 9.00 when you think that the bus pass isn't valid until 9.30!

    Reward wallet on Topcashback

    Certain cashback cannot be transferred to your Reward Wallet. Use the "Part payout" option at the top of the page to untick ineligible transactions to enable it.
    So that is all of them, seems worthless.

    I've just washed and dried a couple of items, only to take them out of the dryer to find that I forgot to add the washing liquid

    Back to the beginning again. I'm glad they were only on a 20 minute washing cycle

    - "Raisins? Dried fruit is for spendthrifts. We only eat berries we've foraged ourselves and why waste money on tins of tuna when there are perfectly good squirrels ready to be wrangled?"

    tbh I'd agree with the first two but not for reasons of thrift, never been keen on turkey and Quality Street is the mankiest non-American chocolate there is IMO.

    People at my shop and others I have visited past couple of days having a moan as ran out of bags for life. We still got 5p bags

    My employer have ordered more, yet sold out. It's not mine, my employer or other shops' fault that they run out of bags.

    It's your fault. Why not bring your own bags for once?

    Some people have never bothered to bring their own bags! Seen customers buy a box of tissues - ask for a 5p bag when they have other new bags from other shops with one or two items in them.

    To those who never bother to reuse bags, do you know how much money you are wasting? Probably in the customers above, about 140 since the bag charge.

    Bought a game yesterday for my nephew on Amazon.

    Showed him today to see if any interest on the game - yes, however saw 30 - could have sworn I paid 40 yesterday.

    Looked at my orders and I did! Cancellation request has gone in, fingers crossed I get email to confirm.

    I was just stuck at traffic lights and noticed a hand painted sign advertising a band's website.

    I wonder if anyone ever visits their site because of a crappy sign?
    Why don't I?
    Maybe I'll like it.
    Let's give it a go....

    Okay, that's the last time I ever do that.

    "Easy peel" oranges (generic) that aren't. Been caught out in all the major supermarkets, they should be more honest.
