    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

    Yes it's sad that this part of the Forum doesn't get used as much at certain times of the day/night but.......

    Tommix was here to notice there was only one poster about but didn't try to interact with them.

    Ive managed to bypass my oven cloth and ended up holding on to the roasting tin which contained hot oil, jumped back with the shock, dropped tin of hot oil all over the floor and have burned my hand pretty dam badly.

    And it was only my hands that weren't actually bothering me today

    Oh and I broke a nail as well

    Gosh, hope you're okay. Oil burns are pretty painful - did you run it under cold water? If it's really bad, it would be worth getting it looked at due to the risk of infection.

    That drives me mad that the people who use the PC's do not have any rights to do anything, they do that here and I am forever typing in the admin password for people.....

    As it can't be fixed remotely (Its a bit of a try this try that for things like this) I fear it may take some time to fix.

    The saving grace is that at least it hasn't shoveled all of my icons from both desktops onto 1...

    Okay, I've got an irritation.

    I was speaking to my mum on Sunday (no, that's not the irritation) and she told me that Boots Opticians had sent a letter to me at her house (she lives in Scotland, and I haven't for about 18 years now).

    The irritation is more that this is now at least the 3rd time that Boots have done this and every time I speak to them about it, they say that they'll fix it but it keeps. on. happening.

    I'm going to have another drink (of milk).

    The result is all those aforementioned threads are now stretched

    When you go to the trouble to respond to an OP's request for advice, taking time to write your thoughts about the problem concisely, non-judgmentally, and hopefully helpfully, then editing to rephrase the odd thing so that it is worded more clearly and sounds better ... and the OP doesn't acknowledge your efforts in any way.

    You have 2 choices here....I can either:

    a) Pray for you

    or....

    b) Post a totally inappropriate gif.

    Your choice
