    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

    ... I think some posts are still being removed due to our resident button-pusher(s). You'd think some people would grow up, wouldn't you, but sadly not. Seems I was optimistic about their age range, too

    Schafernacker is a meterologist, I think a lot of the male ones are. The females, alas, seem to be chosen for their choice in pretty dresses.

Same as not all newsreaders are journalists - some have been involved with selecting, writing and editing the items and some are just reading the autocue.

    Which leads to another annoyance... Jason Rosam on BBC London. As a roving reporter and vox pop collector for other shows - he was fine. But when he sits in for Petrie Hosken on the Breakfast Show, he sounds like he's auditioning for children's TV even when trying to discuss a serious political issue.

    Beloved OH grousing over Big Lizzie Leaks "story" - yes, all boats leak, especially before sea trials etc but for someone who cordially loathes the monarchy, he's fuming over the fourth estate instead!

    Want to go and get my lunch but my boss and his wife are in the kitchen and I might walk in on them having sex* if I go in now.




    *this is probably not a legitimate fear and is highly unlikely but why risk it?

    The price of Mac accessories!

    I'm looking for a second hand Mac keyboard, as I'm getting a bit fed up of having to navigate my way round a normal PC one. (# is Alt and 3 for example) But even the old decrepit ones seem to go for 20+

    'Black Tie' Christmas parties. As if dressing up is going to stop people getting blind drunk at the free bar!

    Reminds me of nightclubs where men must wear shoes (not boots or trainers) and shirts with a collar. Because looking 'smart' somehow prevents you ramming a pint glass in someone's face!

    Rip-off society is irritating me today! The way patient, hard-working, enduring Middle Britons are seen by everyone as a target to be fleeced.
    Top of the list being my rubbish local authority (one of those, I might add, currently under multiple investigations by the Police for their corruption/incompetence). I am SICK of reading about the frantic awards, commendations and prizes they give to THEMSELVES and their management staff. I mean, for God's sake get a grip! Spending our Council Tax monies on giving yourself prizes and posh awards dinners at flash hotels is not going to demonstrate that you understand why we are all so p*****d off with you!
    They have also, at my local shopping centre, instigated a 15 minute parking limit on some parking bays close to the shops. They have a weaselly little 'enforcement officer' (in a brand-new liveried car, of course) taking photos of the poor unsuspecting shoppers who park there, unaware of the tiny postcard-size signs that advertise the puny amount of time you're allowed to park. (the signs are completely obscured every time a big van parks in the bay). So LOTS of Christmas shoppers are going to get an unpleasant 50 tax on their Christmas budget. We're SO PLEASED that our Council thinks this is an efficient way to raise revenue. NOT.
    Thank you, I have said my piece.
