    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

    Sold a teapot on eBay (family opined firmly I had Too Many & after I'd taken both boots off I conceded they might have a point).
    Today buyer saying lid arrived broken. Opening a return case.
    Since I do not believe that is the lid I sent it with, mindful of how I packed it, am likely to just have to bite it & accept & doubtless pay for the return.

    Not sure by whom more peeved, family or buyer!

    Heard of cases like this before. In one I read a power tool was returned as "not working". It wasn't the same tool that was returned. The one sent out was hardly used and working, the one sent back was beaten up and broken.
    One of the reasons I don't sell on eBay any longer.

    More fun with the new find a job website. It turns out it does not notify you when you have already applied tor a job like every other jobsite including the previous one does. I found this out when i accidentally applied for a job i have already applied for.

    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!
