    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 6:20 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

    People who say " I haven't read the whole thread, but in case no-ones mentioned it" then go on to spout the blindingly obvious comment that had been posted 6 times before.


    *waits for someone to post out that this has been posted before and maybe I should read the whole thread.*

    Round washing bowl too small for kitchen sink, can't get much in there.

    Bigger rectangle bowl, doesn't really fot washing bowl, always have to have at an angle instead of flat, a pain but made do. Now has a leak at the bottom

    Bought another today, rectangle, fits into sink, yay, however cannot lay a plate flat to leave and soak a few!

    Is it really that difficult for a kitchen sink, plate and washing bowl to fit?!

    Packing ebay parcels.
    I tell you, some days this no fault divorce looks downright appealing. As a slightly less satisfactory alternative to murder.

    I don't want people coming to my home to pick up stuff, that's when they actually come!

    Or in my case, not collect. Three no shows for a tent I'm trying to give away.

    Dad is aware that no-shows can be a big problem in some areas but has seldom had a problem that way.
    He even takes me walking sometimes to deliver some stuff

    I've given stuff away in the past. Too many no shows, and one or two of the recipients weren't people I wanted here. One in particular came into my workshop to find me, at a time he wasn't supposed to come, and had eyes everywhere.
    Nothing happened. . . but!
    TBH ,I think our GSD "distant cousin to you" who was stopping with us at the time worried him.

    Phoning for my yearly sim only contract haggle with Three, always a nightmare this year I decided to give it a try and their "offer" was to say the tarrifs have changed and if I want to change tariff I would get the equivalent of what I have now for 4 a month extra!!!


    Last year I phoned about 8 times and retentions used to get quite angry in tone with me, it was I had a 7 a month tariff and their "saving" was to cut me from unlimited minutes and texts and 4 gig of data to 200 minutes of calls and 1 gig of data for 6 and complain when I refused telling me they were trying to save me money and they didn't understand why I wasn't taking the saving and how I was a low usage customer so didn't need that much data!


    Oh well back to the complaints team as I do every year.

    That Twitter keep promoting a "have a look at our new look site" thing, but no idea when this will happen.

    They've had it there for at least 6 weeks, iirc!

    Tesco pharmacy trying to charge 1 for a urine sample pot because "they have to charge 1 for all their sundry items."

    Next time I'll get a free one from the vet by pretending it's for the dog.

    Or persuade the GP surgery it might be useful to open occasionally when working folks are actually able to attend.
