    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

    Lol cos I do love irony!

    The 'Hell in a Handcart' reference was only ever about election results here and across the Atlantic.

    Sad that another person in my daughter's life has commited suicide - even if he was just a musician that she never met.

    The word cheeky, as used in this example from an article about food on the Tube:

    !!!8220;The only trouble is I really don!!!8217;t want to get a fine if I get caught with a cheeky kebab on the night tube home.!!!8221;

    If you use cheeky in this way, we can't be friends.

    Again, not cheeky. Staying hydrated is not cheeky.
    Almost as irritating as people who use 'lush' to describe food, children, and shoes.

    It would be great if they ban eating on all public transport. I seem to be a magnet for the crisp eaters.

    Is nom nom another americanism?





    I don't mind people eating sandwiches or 'dry' food, providing they are careful and don't leave wrappers all over the place, but yes, I'd hate to be subjected to someone eating cooked food. Yuk. Gross.

    I'm irritated by public transport in general. My trains were messed up on the way home last night and on the way in this morning and they're generally full of idiots who make me want to commit mass murder.

    I got an orange out on a train once and started eating it. I don't think the other passengers were impressed I quite like the smell of orange, myself. Better than the smell of tuna!

    Losing track of days. It's already Friday.

    I've been avoiding lodgers like the plague (easy to do when you're off work and they're not) and remembering that it's Saturday tomorrow and they'll be here all day is depressing.

    They're so messy and so loud and just so generally in the way all the time. I wouldn't be bothered so much about them monopolising the living room if they at least had the courtesy to tidy it up after using it. I've had words and they've fallen on deaf ears.

    OH will be moving in soon and they'll be moving out shortly after. They're both aware of this (I've been very open about it) but I am very much looking forward to putting the letters of notice in their hands. We'll hopefully have a date sometime next week. Can't wait!

    The 'like' generation has grown up and they are now in customer facing jobs but no-one has told them that saying 'like' every third word is very confusing to us old folk

    People eating in the streets, walking along face down into their phones.

    Even worse are those who scoff their Greggs rolls while in a shop. A charity shop worker I know says this is quite common and that they have to tell people to leave the shop if they are eating.

    Had a letter shoved through the door. The local council are proposing to turn the whole village into a building site for the sake of putting in a few (unnecessary) speed bumps and turning most of it into a 20mph zone to make it "more pedestrian friendly".

    It's actually already very pedestrian friendly with plenty of crossings and nice wide pavements and decent cycle paths. There is no traffic problem whatsoever in the village. The letter doesn't say how much it will cost but the planning department clearly haven't taken a stroll around the city centre lately. The number of homeless people is shocking.

    I just think in a financial climate where council tax has increased past the point of being affordable for many and where we can't afford to feed and house people or provide vital services, it's a bit of a joke to suggest such a large-scale project which is completely unnecessary. Obviously I've responded to the consultation but I actually think I might be compelled to write to the village gazette too. Think I'll chat to the neighbours in the morning and sound out their views too.
