    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've got the fan on as it's still hot, and I'm of a certain age. It keeps blowing strands of hair onto my face which scares me as I think it's a spider

    I'm sat in the dark as well which doesn't help!!

    People who shut windows on buses in a heatwave.
    On a more personal point, people who shut windows in a shared dorm during warm weather and then have a curry for their evening meal.

    Richard Dawkins (who I actually like and admire)

    I am reading his new book and on the second page he's already making wisecracks about when the soul appeared, prompted by him looking at the Grand Canyon.

    I hope the rest of the book, which I thought was supposed to be a collection of his science writings, isn't just going to be him getting on his soapbox about religion.

    I'm having an opinion about an obstinate newbie on the Benefits board that I really need to keep to myself. They want people to give them 75,000 to do a campaign about an issue everyone's already aware of and to provide support that's already being provided. Anyone who suggests this is a very strange request or that they may not have put enough thought into it is apparently working for the DWP and is getting sued for "deformation" of character.

    What's going on?





    Edit...... I went to post about it on the Site Feedback board, but there was already a thread about it, which started yesterday and is running to three pages full of people similarly affected.

    It is happening on all devices.... desktops, tablets and mobiles, and on different browsers, including Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Windows 10.

    Hopefully the MSE staff will sort it.

    Guess it will be a quiet day in MSE land with having to log in every five minutes
    Its not that we have more patience as we grow older, its just that we're too tired to care about all the pointless drama

    I'm spectacularly irritated by absolutely nothing. It must be my superpower.

    That's good, it shows you're really getting in to the spirit of the thread and you should be commended on your outstanding levels of irritation.
    I might start giving out "Irritatee of the week" awards. Of course they would be very itchy, awkwardly designed awards that smell weird and emit a constant buzzing noise

    Today I am not having a good day
    Cat has chucked up
    I woke with some kind of allergy and my eyes have swollen up.
    The building site around the corner is using a compaction technique so there is a steady thump, thump all day.
    Nobody but me ever empties the bin


    Nothing important really just getting me down

    Learning how much Chris Evans gets paid by the BBC has certainly upped my daily irritation.
    Who even likes Chris Evans? Who cares about Chris Evans? He's completely replaceable! anyone could be Chris Evans.
    Is this what the licence fee pays for, endless repeats of Dad's Army and Chris Evans?
