    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 am irate that there is nothing on DT that I can be bothered to contribute to.

    Excuse clumsy grammar.

    Fed up with the BBC and its obsession with salacious "news" about sx perverts. You can't get away from it. We are now watching Sky News instead.

    This morning they had Damian Green on the Today programme on radio 4, and after a long intro about the coming crises in pension provision and elderly care, as soon as he was on air he was bombarded for the first five minutes with questions about his misdemeanours that resulted in him losing his seat in the cabinet. I don't know how he kept his temper, it was relentless prying for absolutely no good reason.

    They eventually let him get onto talking about the social challenges ahead, as he is apparently working on those at present, but there was only a few minutes left by then.

    Why do they think we all want to hear over and over again about stuff like that. It started with Jimmy Savile, and now it's become half the news broadcasts. Yes it's serious and unpleasant, but we don't need to hear every gory detail over and over again, and I doubt even the victims want the overkill publicity.
    I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe

    People who agree to stuff then start negotiating again.

    It's hard to say without knowing more, but you can get into a situation where the more you agree the more they want. Easy to say when it's not me in that situation though!

    That's pretty much exactly what I said. We made an agreement yesterday and I think they should honour it, and I'm now concerned that if I do agree to this they'll keep finding more stuff they want me to pay for. I'm livid.

    Now I need to sit around waiting for a response.

    After a week of peace bar a few small times where I heard noise for about 20 minutes its a group of people upstairs.

    Wonder if it had anything to do with a card posted through my door from the councils anti social team saying they came to visit today when I was out (I was in shower actually)

    We'll see if it's good for me when the EA gets back to me.

    Don't think it's going to be today, now, so I'll just have to sit here seething.

    Nothing is irritating me currently - even my constipation lifted today which I was pretty pleased about.

    Some social media users are demanding Little Mix member Jesy Nelson delete an Instagram post of herself wearing her hair in dreadlocks.

    The 26-year-old singer unveiled her new hairstyle on Monday evening, but some followers on the platform suggested the picture was offensive to black people.

    Nelson was accused of "cultural appropriation" and there were calls for her to apologise.
    I have never even heard of this pop person but it made me so irritated to read this about her today.
    She could have a tattoo of Bob Marley on her bum for all I care, what gives anyone the right to demand anything of her because of the way she wears her hair?

    I hope your mum makes a speedy recovery, Penitent, nothing quite as bad as being stuck in bed - now that would irritate me no end.

    I'd hate to have to start worrying about packing anything up - I try and keep everything ordered.

    It often follows that if my thoughts are ordered I have an orderly day.

    Will be thinking about you...Funny, on Saturday night it was a real hassle reading the discharge notes from the hospital and packing away all the myriad of medicines they gave me - having to make space for them all.

    Ridiculous IT people.
    One of our company sales reps has a habit of invoicing customers for the wrong products, which causes mass confusion. I've spoke to him about this several times and asked if he can please, please, spend 30 seconds checking he's clicked on the correct product next time.
    So he's spoken to the IT people and they've decided the only possible solution is to spend weeks modifying our software to include a special report to alert him to what products he has previously sold...a report that would take him far longer to read than it would to just CHECK THE BLOODY PRODUCT CODE.

    Can't decide
    Cross with myself, since retiring and moving into town centre I hardly use my car 700 miles in a year.
    I cannot make my mind up about selling it!
