    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

    What do they think is going to happen to these bags of excrement which are (I am assuming?) hanging from various random trees? Will a council worker come along and dispose of the poop correctly?
    Originally posted by avogadro
    Well, these irresponsible people don't think at all. Eventually the bio degradable bags bio degrade and the poop falls out on to the ground, thus completely defeating the point of picking it up in the first place
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    I am 6ft+ and stick thin, and still nothing fits. You try and get
    trousers at 36" inside leg, 32" waist
    Originally posted by ceredigion
    I have found there is usually 3 or 4 choices of leg length with each waist size. The problem for me is they donít go lower than 29inches inside leg and sometimes not even that short. I can just about get away with the 29inch but really could do with 28 or 27. With clothes on my top half to fit round my gut I end up getting things where the arms are a touch too long. I know, lose weight then but the point is there are people of all sorts of shapes and sizes.

    The utter tripe that passes for news on the internet these days, usually the latest inane muttering of someone like Piers Morgan which has left people feeling "outrages", "shocked", "astounded" etc. etc. and of course people like him feed it as any attention is good to those people.

    I had a dream of an adult nature about one of my work colleagues and now I can hardly bring myself to meet his eye over the desk partition.

    I was across in the park with my dog yesterday just as the kids football training was starting, maybe about 30 boys under 8yo and a handfull of parents as well as the guys giving the training.
    Hardly an irritant you might think until fast forward to this morning and a visit to the same park now strewn with plastic drinks bottles, coffee cups and other general rubbish including a huge empty pizza box all in the same area as the training was yesterday.

    Tell me again how bad a dog poo bag hanging in the branches of a tree is, at least that will rot down and feed the soil below in about 6 months.

    Retailers not catering for short and/or overweight people when it comes to clothing. Not everyone is 6ft+ and stick thin. They seem to think so.
    Originally posted by donnajunkie
    As others have alluded to, it's more the fact retailers don't cater to those outside what they consider to be a 'normal' size range generally.

    I have a 36" inside leg which massively limits the range of trousers I can buy, supermarket brands for instance are a dead loss. A bigger problem is long sleeved shirts, I invariably have to buy shirts which are too big around the chest if I want sleeves that cover my wrist.

    I guess you can't blame them, as they could be left with loads of 'unusual' size combinations that they can't shift.

    Some enterprising firm could offer alterations to existing stock for a reasonable additional fee, I would have thought.


    My big bugbear is sleeves that are too tight, even when the rest of the garment fits well.

    Those tiny little cap sleeves are some of the worst.

    And I can never do up the buttons on sleeves, as my wrists are too thick. Yet not massively so.
    I prefer three-quarter length sleeves anyway.

    My mum reckons to save cost, tops from 8-22 have just 2 or even worse, 1 size of sleeves.

    I got my muscular arms through work. No gym involved. Carrying, lifting stuff all the time does tone up the arms.

    Why do bra manufacturers think the bigger the chest size, the bigger cup you have? I have a wide back, looks narrow from the front. I'm a 42B and not lost anything there when I was 5 stone heavier at my heaviest. It makes me jealous too when people lose 1.5 stone, they lose a chest and cup size. I would be flat chested by now.

    I can't wear wired bras as they irritate my skin. I just wear those bra tops. Still got 3 stone to go and hopefully I lose something finally on the bust.
