    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

    Trivial compared with what some folks are dealing with, but <<You okay there? >> spoken with mock friendliness by young counter staff after theyve pointlessly kept you waiting for 10 minutes. (I am now officially a curmudgeon.)

    Today, a man was sentenced to life in Warwick Court for stabbing someone to death.

    A few weeks ago, a man was sentenced to 9 years in prison plus a 15 year driving ban for killing 2 young brothers with a car (he was also banned from driving while he was behind the wheel).

    The British justice system, ladies and gentlemen, only issue life sentences if a blade is involved

    Waiting for a plumber who now only has 4 minutes left in the promised time slot.

    Waiting for a Fedex delivery of wine that I have to sign for and show ID to prove I'm old enough to handle it.

    Waiting for a UPS delivery of a chainsaw. No signature or ID needed so it must not be as dangerous as the wine.

    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 ....

    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.

    He is just standing there with his head down and taking an occasional step backwards
