    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

    My dog has a single whisker that points back up towards his eye, almost in it but not quite and it drives me insane every time I see it
    I am so tempted to clip it off but he is so jittery, I am scared to try

    Taking apart my xbox one and had 4 awkward screws, think I don't have the exact screw head managed to get 3 of them out leaving me 1 screw left to remove.


    No matter what I do I can't remove it! The rest worked with a close enough match to the shape and force (without stripping the screw) this last one refuses to grip!!

    Manufacturers that think that if they inundate you with the same ad about their product, over and over again, especially using an annoying song, that you will be brainwashed into rushing out and buying it.

    NO! I WON'T!

    But what I will do is never, ever buy your product, because you have driven me so bonkers with that annoying ad, over and over again, to the extent that I would rather stick pins in my eyes than go anywhere near it, let alone spend money on it or bring it into my home!

    Yes! I'm talking to YOU, Branston Pickle, on Classic FM!

    When you email one person and they have to reply to you and 4 other people, who don't need to be part of the conversation and don't need more emails clogging their inbox.

    It's like a form of telling tales or something. Petty and childish.
    There - in that place; they're - they are; their - owned by them.
    If you have nothing constructive to say, just move along.

    Still haven't finished putting back together my Xbox, got that last screw out with some new heads but its a little stripped so have to be careful, but theres 2 similar types of screw in the board and the only difference easily visible is one is like pure silver and one has a minor rusty tint to it in a very faint way.


    Typical I didn't play the Xbox for a year and start playing it and decide to take it apart to make better cooling and this happens! Not even a hard repair as such its just the screws aren't generic Phillips head else I would of taken the thing apart in like 15 minutes!

    I bought a biggish box of assorted tiny computer type screws from eBay as I always seem to lose a few when I take things apart, or they have already dropped out of their own accord.

    Just realised that I have been hammering the data on my iPad when it will connect to a Wi-fi signal if I just hold it six inches higher up.

    I'm not even sure what one is.

    She's not staying in very long?

    Aqua. My card statement shows that they took my DD on 1st August but it hasn't come out of my bank. When I phoned them earlier this week they told me that there'd been a problem since 30th July and they're working on it so just leave the money in my bank and they'll take it at a later date.
    It's irritating enough that I have to remember to adjust my available balance whenever I check my bank account but I'm really annoyed that they didn't think it might be worth contacting people and letting them know.
    I'm pretty good at knowing everything that's coming into and going out of my account so it's not really a problem for me but there are plenty of people, especially those who have a card that's designed for people with a poor credit history, who will have just presumed that the DD's been taken and are going to be in for a nasty shock when their bank balance suddenly drops.

    Just been following Martin's advice on insurance quotes 21 days ahead as prime time.

    Quidco showed £45 cashbaspck from Age Uk, so no- brainer as first call. £542!

    Used Quidco Compare and found decent ones around £250.

    How the heck can Age U.K. justify that price?
