    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

    Twathole ex has gone and got himself a puppy. I heard the news while sat with the cat on my lap, the cat he abandoned when he left. Can't believe he can so easily replace his beautiful, hilarious cats with a scruffy mongrel.

    I feel your pain. And would add Hermes to the list.

    My issue is stupid companies!!
    I ordered from a company in the netherlands, filled in the shipping address ... they have then only used my surname and street!
    There are lots of places on said street! Why couldn't they use the full address that they bloody asked me for.

    Local farmer with "bird scarer" obsession. Ignores the advice given by the NFU
    https://www.nfuonline.com/news/latest-news/download-our-bird-scarers-code-of-practice/
    (for anyone who is interested)
    We've got two or three of these damn things going off every 20 mins all through daylight hours for most of Spring and Summer now.
    I've watched pigeons in the field they are supposing to "protect" barely jump when they go off.
    And yes, he's been asked to be "reasonable" He isn't.
    Damn things should be banned!

    I just stand there and wait for them to go around me, or if I am coming up behind them I have been known to make a 'beeping' noise as I approach.

    Two small parcels due yesterday or latest by this morning by RM aren't in the post.
    Which means they'll come tomorrow and I just know they'll arrive before I get home from an appointment I cannot miss.

    I had a situation once where those coming towards us took up one side so i made for the other side. This meant a cyclist coming towards me had to go on the grass. They didnt like it and were threatening to kick off. I was tempted to say the clues in the name, FOOTpath. That means i have right of way over you. Did they expect me to walk on the wet grass? Idiots.

    Many years ago, I did something similar. Cyclist on the path who had to stop due to pedestrians including me and was muttering a few things. I pointed to the pavement and said "Footpath. For people, not bicycles". I was probably lucky not to get a bunch of fives I guess
