    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

    Horrible mucky, misty, drizzly day here. Just been up to get the bin.
    Why do the binmen leave the bin open?
    Forgot the litre or so of water collected in the top, because it rests on the hedge!

    She is on the move, her house is up for sale ...

    Actually looks like it has sold. Hope she took a big haircut!!!

    And/or to pay her ketamine dealer?

    Had to miss college today, been in severe chest pain from the noise, slept 13 hours in the end and only woken by one of the other neighbours (a junkie) ringing my buzzer demanding to get in, really hate where im staying now.

    Then got call from the council stating the neighbour has refused mediation, can't give me exact reasons but says theres no chance now of its happening.

    I assume neighbour has gotten upset at me not liking the fact she had a party to 5am last weekend and having over a dozen kids in her flat running about on laminate and a barking dog last night till 10pm!

    Somehow SHES the victim.

    One of the few programmes that I watch on TV has been shifted from 6pm to 9pm to make way for Dysentry

    I'm now faced with staying up later or watching the re-run the following afternoon at 2pm.

    Resetting our passwords every 90 days?
    I'll run out of combinations of my pets names at that rate.
    It's mad, I've had the same log in details for my online banking for a decade and have never been asked to change them, but for a website where people post about bogof tea bags we have to change them ever few months?

    Thanks for the warning Penitent, I like the quorn sausage rolls too .... and their 'chicken' nuggets and 'steak' slices ... will beware of the other stuff you mentioned. Oh, and I buy their 'mince' too. Never got on with any vegetarian 'bacon' rashers though ... and just to sum up, I find tofu rather tasteless.

    I'm irritated today because it's really windy here, so much so that we only had a 20 minute walk which was enough ... on holiday and stuck indoors ...

    I went to post an irritation on here, but couldn't find the thread on my user cp list, so went into the forum and found that I'd accidentally unsubscribed from it.

    So I re-subscribed, but now I can't remember what I was going to post about.

    That has irritated me now.

    I have just had a bit better read of this thread from two days ago (when I must have unwittingly unsubscribed from it) and

    You're all a frog of mad boxes!





    Yup. Isn't Easter a variation on the name of the Pagan holiday as well?

    Yes, the Spring festival was named after the goddess Eostre (Ostara), the goddess of dawn, bringer of light, and by association, of fertility. Associated with eggs and the hare.

    My tablet keeps dropping the internet connection (like every couple of seconds). My wife's laptop that I'm on now, works fine ....

    Maybe I 'need' a new tablet. I wonder what Maslow would have to say!

    And why do they never butter sausage baguettes/sarnies? Dry bread round a sausage of any variety is so.......dry! I don't understand it.

    How much?! We're paying less than half that for unlimited. Is the £65 for fibre?
