    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 know, but I've presented relevant evidence, referred to the descriptors, guidelines, etc. I even included an Upper Tribunal decision explaining why they were wrong the first time around. Still had to go to Tribunal again.

    I'll admit my first application was a mess, which is why I made sure the second one was concise, relevant and well-evidenced.

    Neighbours upstairs was silent when I had relatives visiting now not only has groups of friends round but taking every car space on the street like 8 cars and has music on and the dog is barking as its excited.

    Yesterday was in Glasgow Central and Buchanan Bus Station, got off train at central and this teenager wearing headphones decided to use his skateboard as he stepped off the subway skimming past me (intentional of course) then got up the escalators and going at snail pace but impatient people behind running past me and others which meant shoulders getting hit by people not making an effort to walk/run around others.

    More roll eyes and somewhat funny type of awkwardness, relative is the sort of person who insists on cleaning up after you, and taking rubbish out but where they live they don't have recycling, had a washed, organised bag of recycling, and first they kept putting actual rubbish in meaning it needed rewashed (they are scatterbrained too) then today put a non recyclable thing on top of some fresh recycling ruining half of it as it was paper then to be nice took the "rubbish" out which was my weeks worth of recycling!

    Funny but still mildly irritatiing as I made a lot of effort to wash and organise it.

    My wife. She's getting extremely stressed preparing a meal to celebrate Chinese New Year.

    A Chinese friend bought himself a Lamborghini Hurican as a new year treat. He hasn't topped smiling since.

    On driving to my allocated parking bay, someone (must be a tenants mate) has parked back of two cars to the entrance to the parking area, which made driving past it difficult. The first properties are rented and don't have an allocated bay, but free for all. Yet the two bays next to the cars were empty. Why couldn't the tenants friend park in one of those bays?

    Had a headache since yesterday evening that won't go away.

    I'm also irritated that I couldn't afford a Lamborghini even if I wanted one (I prefer Porsche, but can't afford one of those either)!

    The seal on my oven door has seperated at the join and every attempt that I have made to fix it back together again has failed.
    The latest one saw the joining strip of metal that goes inside each end of the rubber sticking to the end that it had come loose from before but now has come loose from the end of the rubber that it was stuck to before

    I need either better glue or a longer strip of metal to join the two ends together
