    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

    Bought an item on ebay on Sunday, estimated delivery date was yesterday.

    I've just received a message from the seller saying they're out of stock

    Anyway

    Conflicting information about phone appointment, was told "in the afternoon" by receptionist, the website appointment system said 3pm I go on lunch break at 12, leave my phone at desk and 12:02 get a missed call from doctor, phone reception and they hang up on me twice and third time say I will get a call back later when I enquire about the time slot I get a snotty "the appointment system shouldn't of told you an exact time"

    I queried with Universal Credit on Tuesday if I needed a sick note as I was claiming the limited capability part as I work part time, they responded with no and theres nothing on file to say so and nothing about a health assessment needed as I am already on the limited capability, come back home today to find a health assessment form dated the same day, and when I log into UC a new "to do" item to provide a sick note


    FOR THE 3 MONTHS I ALREADY GAVE ONE FOR!!!



    And dated the same day as my enquiry, guessing me asking flagged it.

    My EHIC card expired in the past week. As I, and millions of others thought we would have left the EU at the end of March (please don't go on about this) so in the process of renewing my card and noticed that I made a typo of my middle name - typing quickly made me type two letters the wrong way round)
    Then on a page it says
    Before submitting your application, please check all details are correct. To amend your application, or to include additional applicants use the "Edit Details" button.
    Click the edit details button then to discover the name in uneditable. WTH?

    Probably best off starting as a new applicant

    Why is it that whenever I log into Faceache and try to open one of my chat boxes it will never, EVER open on that tab and I always have to open another tab to get the box to open
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    I have just remembered why I try to avoid town on a Saturday.

    An element of crowd rage kicking in followed by being behind the person in Lidl who loaded the contents of their overfull trolley onto the belt, then decided they couldn't afford it and walked out of the shop abandoning the lot. Not sure what happened to mentally calculating as you go along, but they must have realised it was well over the hundred quid mark as they were piling it all in?
    Had to wait flipping ages while it was cleared, to pay for mine.

    TV channels that keep changing.
    That's the second retune in a couple of weeks.
    Have to use manual with the PVR as well because auto picks up lower power transmission from somewhere, that confuses the box!
    Why change them!

    There's very few of my Faceache friends I do know, to be fair. Set it up initially to do competitions so had to collect a random assortment of other compers to tag in etc.
    It's now expanded to shared interest groups, but no-one I'd count as a RL friend or family - not even on there in my real name. They don't tell you when you first start that you can only change your name so many times before you hit the limit and I was just playing around with the options. Got stuck with something that I'd not have chosen to have on there in the long run.

    Dad took me to the shops early today because there is a road running thing on in our area today and a lot of the roads and footpaths are closed off later (Dad is irritated by this)
    The way that he packed his rucksack at the shop meant that the plastic container that held the peaches clicked twice with every step that he took and it was driving me nuts I was on the short lead so I couldn't even get away out of earshot
    One and a half miles of 'click-click click-click' all the way home

    Go food shopping.
    Go for massage.
    Return home.
    Start to cook tea. Ponder why the fridge is empty. Realise your food is still sitting in the gym. Because you thought about asking someone to remind you then decided it wasn't necessary as you couldn't possibly forget...

    Customer caught one of my fingers with one of their nails so hard that he drew blood. Did he care, aknowledge what he did or say sorry? No he did not. I had to stop to clean the cut and put a plaster on so I wouldn't bleed everywhere. He was more interested in getting his shopping through making a colleague take over while I sorted out the problem he made.
