    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

    The dwps new find a job website. Its terrible. You cant view cvs you have on it. It no longer matches you to jobs based on criteria you set. So you now have to just trawl through everything. I looked in the engineering section today and it was full of jobs for bar staff. How long has bar work been part of engineering.

    Actually, what's irritated me is how 50+ people are killed and many more injured in Palestine and nothing much is said. Actually, things have been 'said' but no doubt will happen again. And again. When will both sides finally realise that this is no way to carry on. For this latest episode, the blame has to lie at Trump's door surely, although in fairness he did always say that he would do it.

    Just arrived at my holiday hotel, signed into my phone and Microsoft wanted me to verify my account. I've been coming here for over 10 years and not had this problem.

    Could be verified by text or phone but to my home number..grrr

    Or to my other email address...but guess what...forgot that password

    Took several attempts to get it amended. Even when it said it was changed it would not let me log in.

    Finally done...now need some sleep. It's nearly 4 here. Two hours ahead.

    I forgot to watch something on TV (about trains), on C5 last night.
    Maybe I'll find it on catch-up ... if I remember!

    I'm not a train-spotter btw, but used to be when I was 13! No anorak either

    Got an answer from MSE Towers about my lack of a spam button.
    Apparently I am part of a 'group' of members that has had the spam button removed.
    Can't say that I'm thrilled about that

    Don't know what they are, but I share your irritation because it sounds either expensive or annoying. Or both.
