    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

    Maybe they include things like wind chill factor?

    I think I know the post you're referring to and agree with you re the content. I 'thanked' it, so does that make me guilty by association?

    I see that the post you quoted has also been removed, suspect it may have been because they both used a word beginning with T?

    I agree that the further post by the op needed deleting , totally out of order, esp as that wasn't what was originally written, but edited to cause offence

    Hit my tooth with a fork while eating lunch and I can't get the horrible twanging sensation to go away. Someone needs to invent safety forks.

    The weather people on UTV

    I swear they are positively gloating whilst telling us how cold we are going to be this weekend

    One even said ' you really won't believe how cold you are going to feel this weekend'

    I'm feeling like I want to throttle him

    I'm irritated because I can't think of a contentious word beginning with T.

    And I can't remember what might have gone on that involved a T.



    And it's scary being amongst macro-autophagists.


    And as regards the checking thing...... I am irritated about constantly having to unlock and relock my car because I can't remember if I locked it. Even if I have only just done it!
    I have to lock it and immediately tell myself "I have locked the car", otherwise I can't remember.

    The trouble is that 9times out of 10 I have locked it, but there have been a couple of times when I've gone back to check, and I hadn't, so I can't assume I have.

    None of this would matter, except that I'm wearing out the batteries in my key fob!

    Why don't you just try the car door handle instead of going through the lock/unlock process to check each time?

    Also if I'm not at home, it saves me having to walk all the way back to the car if I just get within range.

    Trouble is with locking / unlocking is it's a bit like striking a match to see if it will light.
    Well not exactly perhaps but it's an absolute. locked or unlocked.
    You have my sympathy though. I have a bit of trouble with getting it through to myself that doors are actually locked.

    It has three functions......

    Press once to lock.
    Press a second time to immobilise/alarm it.
    Press a third time to disable the motion sensor thing, ie if you have locked the car with kids or dogs in it. (I have almost never used that one).

    So, if I have actually pressed twice to lock it and alarm it, if I then press a third time, it will just disable the motion sensor, so then I'd still have to unlock and relock it.
    So, I go straight to the unlock/relock bit.

    Mine has a second press to double lock. No alarm on mine. Not too much of a problem here hopefully.
    If you leave it for x seconds though, and press lock again, it just rapidly flashes the lights. It's a reasonably modern Peugeot.

    My last car was an eleven year old Ford. Key fob was temperamental, so I always locked with the key and checked at the same time, although I could hear the other doors locking with a satisfying 'clunk'.

    When the voices started, I gave up driving .......
