    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

    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.

    Buying half a dozen small items of makeup in Boots and not even being offered a small paper bag to put them in, they were just left rolling around on the counter for me to scoop up. I do think shops selling easily lose-able things should offer a bag of some sort, even if not the dreaded plastic.

    I made my point by standing by the counter and fishing around in the depths of my handbag to find a little supermarket fruit and veg bag that I keep in there for such occasions.

    (Anyone wondering why I was buying so much at one time - it's my bi-annual re-stock, which gets left until I eventually get around to it.)
    I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe

    Long story, but please bear with me, I need to get this off my chest.

    I have a bearded hipster in my family name of Joe, whose way of talking irritates me. Which is fine cos I hardly ever see him anyway.


    However I went to visit my 80 year old nan this morning who greeted me thus:

    "Hey Tommy! I'm just about to rock up to Budgens to score some Spuds..Laters dude!"


    It broke my heart to hear my sweet old 1930s Nan talk in this way.


    Turns out that 'hipster Joe' had been staying with my nan for a few days and his daft way of talking has obviously rubbed off on her.


    What should I do?

    Let it go for now. If she grows a beard and starts wearing skinny jeans, say something.

    You are right Pip, she's not hurting anyone. However the incongruity of an 80 year old grandma talking like a 'surfer dude' just annoys the hell out of me.

    I suppose I will just have to 'wind my neck in' and let her get on with it..
    Thank you for your reply.

    Speaking of hipsters 2 weeks ago went for a drink with a friend, don't go to next town over that often (and don't drink alcohol at all normally) I noticed this run down old mans pub that I used to walk past when in that town did wonder why I didn't see the usual array of old men outside smoking, it had the cheap drinks menu on outside.


    Walked in and it was all hipsters, turns out they had recently bought it over as it was old fashioned and hipsters liked the old decor, doubled drinks prices and stopped selling the normal pints and it was all drinks you never heard of or ones that are linked with hipters, men with those hipster beards etc, me and friend felt like we were the oldest people in there but my friend was recently 30!


    And despite the pubs around getting like a proper ale for as cheap as 2.60 they wanted like 4 for their budget brand lager!

    I started emptying the cupboard of doom and I'm irritated because I knew I should have just left it At least there is a black bag of sheets and duvets and a large wicker basket, ready to go to the charity shop, now

    This cupboard has been desperate for attention for a long time as everything gets chucked in there. We've pretty much ignored it though, so why on earth I went in there today, I don't know

    The plan is to tackle a small amount each day. Maybe then, it will finally be sorted out
