    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

    Do they lose it?

    Or is it just that they've been there, done it, read the book, bought the t-shirt, seen the sequels, all 6 of them, and the prequels, and all the repeats, and have decided that they are bored with it all, as nothing much changes, so they are going to go out and have fun, haha! heehee! hoho!

    They said this so often that I went to the doctor to get it checked out.

    The doctor told me that I wasn't deaf, just bored.

    And even that is just 999 upside-down!

    6666 is just, well, six thousand, six hundred and sixty-six!

    I bet you wouldn't be a-frighted by £6,666, would you!

    How about I O U £6666 and U O I £9999 ?

    The Sims 4.....since the new expansion pack there are certain bugs that are very annoying - such as the one where you get a notification that someone (anyone, even a very passing acquaintance) has died. Cue the 2 day sad moodlet that affects everything!!

    I wouldn't mind but my sim went on a date having just got rid of her sadness after her mother died.....she then got a death notification and then witnessed another sim dying whilst on her date! She was bereft at this point.....totally ruined the date....

    A bad day today. Got saddled with an unscrupulous advisor at jobcentre whose sole aim was to pick fault in my jobsearch evidence. Get this, apparently its an issue for me to not tell them what the expiry date for each job is. Also she thought she knew better than me what i am qualified to apply for. Now i find myself having to attend an effective jobsearch session. Hopefully it will be of use but the chances are it will be a waste of time.
    Then when i get home to do job search the internet keeps going down for a few hours. Its still doing it now. It went in the middle of typing this. At least i managed to get some job search done.
