    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

    Got my repeat prescription and find one item missing ... Oversight? No, but apparently not being prescribed it any more because I can purchase it over the counter.

    Not at pharmacy prices I can't
    Been through this before and I will just buy several months stock from eBay, which I can afford to do, but the idea is somehow annoying me. Not for anything life threatening, but I do actually suffer when I don't take the medication ....

    I'd rather be eccentric than egocentric

    If it is not then I would disable your virus software for a short while to see if that is blocking them....

    Quote a post with a non showing image in like you say above, copy the image path bit, the path between the [ IMG ] tags and paste that into a separate tab on the browser and just see what it comes back with as it might stick up a message saying why it has been blocked,,,

    Feeling really guilty and sad after putting the cone on my dogs head for the first time.

    When the vet removed girl dog's eyes, she had to wear this tight bandage across her face and she hated it. Kept trying to get it off and I felt so mean, stopping her.

That would suggest it might be something to do with your account as you also have this missing spam button, i will see if their are any settings that might affect it

    Edit: you could create a new test user and see if you see them with that, that should discount your settings if you still can not

    Today's 'Dontone's Irritations'

    Came home from running a couple of errands, and there was a delivery card from Hermes on the door mat. It said 'last delivery attempt'
    We were expecting a delivery next Monday/Tuesday (the 14th or 15th), and so decided to check our order status. We ordered an item on Wednesday night.
    It turns out that Hermes tried to deliver on Thursday, & Friday & now this morning. No cards except the one this morning, and nothing from the retailer, apart from 'we will let you know when it's dispatched' emither.
    So, our item that we expected early next week, should be back with the shop on Monday.
    Rather annoyed by it. If the driver had stuck a card through the door on Thursday, I would have made sure I was on on Friday. The neighbours were out in their garden too, they would have taken it in. Big fat MEH!!
    That's all.
    Carry on.
    BEST EVER WINS WON IN ORDER (so far) = Sony Camcorder, 32" lcd telly, micro ipod hifi, Ipod Nano, Playstation 3, Andrex Jackpup, Holiday to USA, nintendo wii, Liverpool vs Everton tickets, 250 Reward Your thirst, 500 Pepsi, p&o rotterdam trip, perfume hamper, Dr Who stamp set, steam cleaner.

    comping = nowt more thrillin' than winnin'

    The neighbour upstairs has gone on one of her random guest things, can be quiet for days (bar a hour in morning, afternoon and evening) but been noisy last 3 nights to increasing level, and plays music full blast.


    Saw her yesterday and rather than get angry or make her think theres bad blood I smiled and said hi to her, she gave me a nasty look walked past me without stopping and said to her friend something in Polish in a loud irritated voice.


    Oh well, at least I took the high ground and didn't act immature.
