    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

    No wonder they say it'll take 10 minutes to complete!

    Caller : "It's about your recent no fault car accident".
    Me: "I don't drive. You have the wrong person".
    Caller: "Maybe you've had another kind of accident .....?"

    Male 'friends' who start circling like vultures as soon as you're single.
    You think they see you as a friend, but really you're nothing but an injured wildebeest.

    Sometimes they do, sometimes they may just of been raised to look out for a woman, or maybe they just have a crush on you and unintentionally make a move from their mannerisms.

    My mum does the same - for years, I used to be the one who remembered the reg number.

    I'm sure a couple of times she's gone to an identical car with an almost identical reg number (except maybe 1 or 2 letters or digits different) and even been able to open one of them before realising she was at the wrong car!

    I was listening to the end of something on the radio before I got out of the parked car and a shaft of sunlight just happened to light up the cruise control stick on the steering wheel - and I saw it for the first time. In ten years.

    Mine is my name, so I can't tell you what it is!

    I do still struggle to remember it sometimes!

    (Because some of the 'letters' are numbers, so I have to remember which are which! Hahahahahahahha)

    It's an uncommon name, so it was dead cheap.....a lot cheaper than the one I suggested for Wiz!






    Edit. If you move to the Isle of Wight, you could have this one.....

    No price given, which means it's mighty expensive.
