    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

    Someone on facebook keeps doing some boring answer questions thing and every answer gets posted in big letters in the big coloured box things. It fills the feed and i am scrolling through endless rubbish. I end up giving up and logging out. I dont want to say can you stop posting rubbish.

    The cost of sending 2 small packets by Royal Mail Special Delivery.
    7.25 each

    And.....B&Q again

    They used to sell their screws in plastic packs so you could see what you were buying. Now they're in boxes. OK, the size is on the side but I wouldn't have a clue as to the size I need, I always go by how they look. Very annoying

    Trouble with dusters, you have to wash them separately or they'll turn the rest of your washing yellow.

    Those people who killed those kids in an arson attack. And the authorities who knew they were being hassled and did nothing. All those who could but did nothing should lose their jobs and never work again. I am so angry!

    I have eaten too much today
    Nothing particularly bad but just too much
    I was doing so well and almost reached the next target but I have just been so weak-willed today

    People who only post negative things on here, and it's always sneering at or directed at other people. Sometimes the job someone's in really isn't suited to them but they need to remember these customers keep them in a job

    Well, I'm going to post negative things about the chavsters who woke me up at 3am last night, and kept making a racket till about 4.30

    I've a mind to report the dimwits for anti-social behaviour, but I doubt anything'll get done about it.

    I agree with you, word for word.

    Also irritated by judgemental people who criticise other peoples choices on what they spend their money on

    Blooming stamps! They detach themselves from the backing sheet!

    Spent 40 on second class stamps at the post office, put them in my bag.

    When I next took my purse out I noticed a stamp attached to it. Then another was found attached to a little cardboard box! They!!!8217;ve mostly lost their sticking power now. I!!!8217;ll have to glue them on to cards. At least I found them.

    Bloomin' nail varnish. !!!55357;!!!56897;


    I had to put some on the other day for my last AmDram performance. I hate putting it on, but even more, I hate taking it off. The remover, even the gentler removers, stink of acetone, which doesn't do my breathing any good, and are lethal for my poor nails, which have started getting a tendency to split and ridge in the last couple of years. !!!55357;!!!56887;

    So, I put off removing it, and as a consequence, it's all flaking off and looks dreadful.

    (I haven't had to go anywhere, so have just left it).

    (It's the one drawback to AmDram, apart from having to put loads of make-up on as well. Taking that off always makes my eyes sore. I don't know how people can stand putting it on every single day).

    Although you hate putting it on, if you put another coat on and then wipe it straight away it should take both coats off.

    The incompetance of the police
    Going into a wooded area about half a mile from my house where youths are well known for starting fires, they parked a van and a car at the top of an entry point then 6 of them all went in the same way with their torches switched on, no surprise that the youths scattered in all directions before the police could even get close to them.

    Next time guys, come and see me and I will show you a dozen different ways to get there without needing to use your torches and you might even catch some of them.

    I like to wrap my Xmas gifts in the same paper for each person but I've ran out for the last present. Do I buy another roll or re-wrap that persons again, such a waste either way.
