    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

    B2 Stealth bombers flying over my house.

    They aren't very stealthy. You can see them and they are LOUD!

    I keep telling posters here - they keep coming out of every orifice you can imagine. I keep feeling them on my head in the night.

    people on their phones blocking the aisle and doorway in the supermarket then tutting loudly when you ask them to let you past

    Always remember 8 years ago when I was in a charity shop and this woman was gossiping to her friends, not a young woman she was in her mid 40s at least and speaking to a elderly couple I was blocked into a corner as I had the wall behind me furniture around me and her at the only exit,


    Kept saying excuse me to her and she never noticed, waited 5 minutes and she noticed me and went "oh sorry" then let me past then said snottily "don't say thanks or anything then" and tutted at me!


    Anyway my irritation today, wanted to print a label but my printer stopped recognising the cartridge in it, couldn't find replacements so had to go into the under bed drawers except they had jammed shut as the tracks are either badly designed or old as they had stuck at an angle that required someone to push them from behind.


    Except the lining of the frame blocks you from doing so! In the end had to cut a hole big enough for my hand to fit on each end then get my hand in and maneuver the drawers angle enough, still took about 10 minutes for each as could get it on one side (the one I cut) easily but the other side I couldn't reach.


    Got both sides done in end and the replacement ink cartridges were not in there.


    Whole thing took about 2 hours as checked through wardrobe first as well!


    Eventually found the cartridges where I though originally, above the wardrobe but shoved at the back.


    Meant I had to have a short shower and no time to take recycling out before getting bus to town and get my daily meal.


    Not normally a problem but im away for a 3 day trip tomorrow and have heavy items to carry so can't go to recycling bins first! (without factoring in 10 minute walk each way)

    Or they might have developed a cloaking device, and a three dimensional holographic projection device that makes you think they are where they're not.

    Thing is with them I assume, is that if they are used, they fly high and fast, are invisible on radar, and by the time you say "Oh look there are stealth bombers" it's too late. . .

    Duplication of stories on the BBC news website, the same stories are posted all over the page, as many as 4 times some of them

    then there are the stories/articles that seem to hang about the site for days then get displayed again at the end of the week just in case you missed it

    There's no precis of the news either, so you have to sort of wade through the articles to see what's going on.
    I actually prefer the text news on the TV.
    I can find out more about anything I'm interested in.
    Now if they could just leave the position of that alone on the front page it's be great.
    I go on, press the news button and get sport.
    There usually seems to be sport on the actual TV anyway!

    Wonder if that caffeine shampoo works Pyxis? Or does drinking loads of coffee do the same? Shrug.

    It's a digital world now. With information, as opposed to story telling, you want to access what you want when you want. With news you sometimes just want the end of the story.
    But you need an index.

    Never had one but I have ridden one. Weird because you can't see the front wheel.
