    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 meeting of all the cafe volunteers has been called this morning, looks like we might find out what's happening.
    I hate these kind of things

    I will need to find something else to do every second Sunday

    The fact that a couple of the threads have turned into All Our Yesterdays.

    Start a dedicated thread for old stuff one of you, so those of us that live in the present can avoid it
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    I'm irritated because I'm on somebody's naughty list, and I like reading some of their down to earth and straight to the point posts. I can't even send them a PM to apologise for anything I've done because they won't get it!

    I feel as though I'm somewhere between a rock and a hard place .....

    Can you not just post an apology with the members name in the title?

    Strange person in the checkout queue in Aldi this morning said 'how am I going to get home? there must be 2 inches of snow fallen since I came into the shop' - me 'how did you expect to get home with all that shopping?' - 'in my car of course' - what's stopping you? - 'look at the weather, I can't be expected to drive in conditions like that, it shouldn't be allowed' and off they trotted to phone for a taxi.

    I'm just on hold with the bank to see if I can cancel the debit card payment!

    Been to Lidl this afternoon.
    About ten percent of the other customers were walking around either talking on their mobiles or texting.
    What are they doing? Updating their FB page with "I'm in the veg aisle" or something?

    Had to rearrange a signed for item to be redelivered by Royal Mail on Saturday morning but I don't know when our postie will be round with it so I can't go to Morrisons or run my errands in town until they've been

    At least I've got plenty of milk for breakfast...
