    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 your answers didn't tally with what they wanted the results to be!

    I've lost count of the number of times that I have read "there are no wrong answers in this survey" only to get kicked out after I have said that I live in Scotland or am over 55.

    I don't really mind that, its being told that I have been banned for not being honest and no evidence has been given

    I cant find my E cig

    I was using it whilst on the sofa last night. Usual and automatic routine when I go to bed is to unplug Mr Sukis e cig, plug mine in , turn of the tele and hit the nest

    So it should have been plugged in charged when I got up

    But nope, Mr Sukis was still there

    I have the sofa pulled to bits - not there

    Ive checked bathroom - not there

    Ive even ripped the bed apart - not there

    I CANT FIND IT AND IM MORE THEN JUST A LITTLE IRRITATED

    The short: Amazon and Yodel!

    The long: Ordered bird cage on Amazon from Marketplace seller on Prime one-day delivery which was supposed to arrive today. The seller sent it by Yodel next day delivery. Yesterday it was received at Hatfield sorting centre. Now one would think that from Hatfield it would be delivered by courier to me in Peterborough. But no, Yodel took it off to Shaw depot in Oldham!

    Why the delay is relevant is because my new green cheek conure is arriving by pet courier tomorrow and if there is no cage the courier will take it back.

    All is not lost though: I got a cage locally and I'll return the cage which Yodel is transporting all over the Midlands and recoup my money. As far as I'm concerned Amazon is done in now. Prime membership cancelled.

    Excuse me for a few seconds while I go AARRGGHH

    Constantly having to chase up various specialists to do with my daughter (social services, wheelchair services etc). Having an operation for her booked in, having the date of it changed, then having it cancelled all within a few weeks & still waiting for an update on when it might actually happen now!

    I was extremely busy at work today and the constant interruptions really didn’t help.

    Like this gem...(via text message)

    “Hi...can I drop in to pick up a xxxx form?”

    Me: “Yes, we’re in the office on Monday and Friday mornings, 9am-12pm”

    “Great! Can I come in tomorrow?”

    Me: **bangs head repeatedly on desk**

    Struggling for something to write in a sympathy card to my cousins on the death of my aunt

    She was 90, they are both in their 60s and I have not had much to do with any of them for 40 years.

    I did see my aunt about 12 years ago and one of my cousins came to my mums funeral 10 years ago.

    I am unable to attend aunts funeral next week due to other commitments that I am very loath to cancel/postpone.

    I feel rotten just signing my name on the card but I just can't think what to say.

    "I was so sorry to hear that Aunty Wizard had died, and I regret that I am unable to attend the funeral, but I will be thinking of you both."

    Then, is there anything you particularly remember about this Aunty? Something funny, or kind or helpful that she did for you? If so, you could add something like:

    "One thing I remember about Auntie Wizard was x years ago, when she..................... That has stuck in my memory all this years".


    Then, if you know that certain other relatives will be there, you could add:

    "Sending regards also to relative x, y and z.

    With condolences,

    Wizard"

    "Please accept my deepest sympathy on the death of your mother, my aunt.
    I'm afraid that I won't be able to attend the funeral due to existing arrangements I have which unfortunately can't be changed."
    (And sign it.)

    At least that's what I'd do.
