    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

    Waiting in for a council appointment, heard phone go 20 minutes ago but somehow the act of picking up phone which had a cover on knocked the "reject call" button meaning I don't know what the call was as the number just shows online as for council and thus it could be social work, disability support anything!

    Went out for 2 hours as it was lovely outside, around time I left neighbour had music full blast, came back and even before I got to the back door I heard the dog barking like 50 feet from the back door, came in and the neighbour has friends round and its their kids who are chasing the dog and making it bark.


    The lack of respect some people have is shocking, Im a little paranoid but yesterday when I went out I saw her on balcony and smiled and said hello, she not only blanked me but gave me the "dagger" eyes, then turned to someone in the flat and heard her speaking in a angry tone.


    Today saw her in garden, she blanked me again didn't even give eye contact.

    The number of companies who're sending out GDPR emails.

    They also seem to be leaving it very close to the deadline...

    Pity I can't charge them 50 per email for having to deal with them.
    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    I did complain, months ago and she got really agressive with me and even then it was after I made all of 4 chats in a year where I politely said to her that I was being kept awake at night or woken early and had noise all day and laughed at, told kids will be kids, or she had relatives around and it was special occasion, or someones birthday there was always a excuse and tried turning it around on me each time saying things like shes a single mum (though told me she was married before, and the same guy that never leaves the house was her husband)


    She seems to hold a grudge, and in new year when I was kept awake by dog barking (and I hear her scream at it a lot too) she lied and said she was "babysitting" the dog. Now every time she comes in with her kid from school etc they stand outside my door and she excites the dog and makes fake barking sounds till the dog barks for real then laughs.


    The annoying thing is I can get say a whole day of peace and quiet bar kids a hour before bed, and another day 4-6 hours spread out over the day so you can't tell when you should go for a walk yourself.

    Aaaand a few minutes back I looked out window to see this guy ranting in foreign language waving his fist at my window with another foreign guy, he had the upstairs neighbours dog and they both saw me looked in my direction and gave me nasty face and said something loudly in Polish, both of them with large beer in hand (drinkings illegal on the street)


    Remember from past things I have said, she claims she is SINGLE and has no male friends (that visit her) her babysitters female.


    If the men are shouting as they are angry at me, what have they got to be angry about? Unless shes been spreading lies about me.
