    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

    Hmmm, difficult one. I will often spot a typo when I return to a thread later on.

    The Strictly thread has us all posting rapidly, with our perceptive/catty comments, of course.

    More interested than irritated, but have a few threads disappeared lately? According to my statistics I haven't posted anything in 4 days, I could've sworn that I had!

    My own opinion is that the spammers are reporting threads out of spite using all of their various alias's

    People who think there is some reason not to post the name of a business properly, e.g. Te$c0 instead of Tesco. What's that all about?

    At least I'm not going to bed (so) irritated, just irrigated from all the water I've been drinking which probably means I'll be up several times in the night.

    I think that they think that they're not allowed to specify firms.

    If that is the case, then I've not heard it is.

    I've seen Tesco's referred to as Mr. T, and Sainsbury's as Sainsbobs.


    Are we supposed not to specify them?

    I'm getting an RSI in my index finger MCP joint.

    It's from using a stylus with my iPad plus the amount of posting I do.



    How quickly can I become left-handed, for forum posting purposes?


    Have I invented Stylus Finger to go with Texter's Thumb and Tennis Elbow etc?

    Just thought, if i-pad stylus was used for these tasks, would save RSI on finger perhaps?

    Funnily enough, when I was about 13, I decided I wanted to become ambidextrous, so I started writing with my left hand.

    It was quite slow and tortuous, and teachers commented on how bad my hand-writing had got, but slowly it got easier and easier.

    Then exam time came, and I thought it wasn't a good idea to take longer in exams writing, so I went back to my right hand, and never re-started.

    Shame.

    Who knows how good my brain would have become if I'd persevered?

    Perhaps I should start that again.

    For now it's back to fingertips, and not the stylus, so expect more typos!
