    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

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.

    Anyway, for what it's worth we've decided to go see one of the greatest films ever made...'Raging Bunny' starring 'Rabbit De Niro'.

    Fly tippers

    It must be more difficult for them to find a nice secluded spot to dump stuff than it would be to go to the local council tip

    The nice weather is attracting the neighbours idiot friends, I got used to their 3 hours a day noise at split times but now its back to every day 3pm onwards to at least 9, last night they were coming and going to about 1am! Cars pulling up, slamming doors, drunken sounding men in hall, storming upstairs drunken sounding laughter and whopping.

    Ebay. Their mobile site has always been useless due to a lack of functionality, up until last week I would just switch to their desktop site but now that option is gone, if I try to switch on my phone it just takes me back to the mobile site.

    I also hate the fact that the council are not removing the rubbish, even though I finally managed to report it, despite their faulty Web page

    The various stories spinning around about Megan Markle's Dad. The lass is getting married in days, wedding are complicated and more so where royalty & security are involved, & for whatever reason she has to cope with a load of assorted gossip.
    If her dad did pose for photos to raise airfare, I have to admit I'm amused * impressed that he can play the press to his own ends, but its beginning to look like he's come a cropper & that will make his lass unhappy.
