    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

    Just so tired all the time, but not because of doing much.
    I sleep in the day and at night ... but still tired ...

    The smoking ban law should include smoking within a certain distance from doors. At work, we have automatic doors which are under a overhang. When it rains, sometimes get one or two people smoking by the entrance. Sometimes with the wind direction and where the smoker is standing, the smoke gently wafts into the shop. A manager or supervisor politely asks the smoker to smoke away from the door, only for them to get abuse.

    Then I have walked past offices with about a good dozen hovering by the entrance all smoking and it looks pathetic

    I always stand 100 yards from any door when I'm smoking, preferably within easy reach of a chimney..As previously stated I also make a point of smoking without any clothes on.

    I need a smartphone. Although I don't make many calls, I was actually an early adopter of smartphones. I've had one since 2002.

    The Xperia X5 Compact looks like it might suit me. It's old (for a phone) but does what I need it to do.

    Took my car in for an mot and service this morning. They called me to say it would be nearly £800! Well it's a 10 year old car and would certainly keep costing me so I mulled it over and decided to get a new one. Auris hybrid, automatic - £8k. It won't be available for a couple of days so they said they would let me have a courtesy car. Got a lift to the garage - didn't have my driving licence with me

    Had to get a cab home and will have to get another cab back to the garage in the morning!

    Plus I was supposed to get a lift from the garage to work this morning by my colleague rang in sick - so another cab!

    Was exhausted today so woke up after sleeping 14 hours! Realised I had 15 minutes when I woke to shower, shave, get to bus stop made it in time but when I got to my appointment there was someone gossiping with the receptionist for 10 minutes meaning I was late anyway.

    Then had to go into the city to pick up a freebie I had got, my main phone battery died (to be fair both sides sometimes it can say 10% left and last 2 days, other times 1% lasts 2 days) so used my backup phone.

    The maps on a iphone are a nightmare, told me to go to a bus stop that didn't exist, then told me to go to another but the wrong stance due to it claiming I was further up the road then I actually was.

    Then because of that didn't get to pick up the freebie till a hour after originally planned, there was 2 stations in 5 minutes walk in different directions, I went to the one that I had to wait 10 minutes for connection rather than every 3 or so minutes meaning I missed the fast train back to mine, got another train and people pushed around me, took most seats in carriage so there I was lifting a heavy item to another carriage with one hand and 2nd hand to open the doors, no one bothered to help me or ask if I was ok despite seeing me struggle got to next carriage and as I went to sit down this guy and his girlfriend sat down on the PRIORITY seats, the guy manspread out as well as streched his legs so even though I got seat opposite and was in distress he kept giving me dirty looks, even heard his girlfriend whisper about how I should move and how I didn't care.

    Bearing in mind I have a disabled railcard!

    They seemed totally in their own world, not a single person helped when they saw me struggle instead bumping me out of their way!

    This made me angry:

    https://www.oldies.org.uk/2017/chunk-carla-lane-animals-in-need-liverpool

    This site specialises in re-homing older dogs, there are the expected sad stories of dogs being abused or neglected but this one is different.

    Long story short, dog lived in a loving home. An intruder entered the home who the dog proceeded to bite. The courts initially ruled the owner was an unfit owner as he didn't prevent his dog biting the intruder and the dog should be destroyed. The dog has been reprieved but the original owner hasn't so cannot take the dog back.

    Irresponsible dog owners who go jogging with their off lead dogs, running miles ahead of said dogs so when the dog has a giant crap on the footpath the owner is unaware and it doesn't get picked up
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    ETA: I go running with a dog quite a lot, and she is never on the lead. But also she is never more than arms length away and runs at heel.
