    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

    Blummin' ruddy 'orrible dog of mine

    Regular readers will know I have to muzzle her when she's off the lead because she's a walking dustbin and will eat virtually anything. This morning we were in a field, nobody else about. She was off the lead and muzzled but she kept asking for the ball. So, I took the muzzle off and let her have the ball.........I should know better.

    She brought the ball back 3 times but on the fourth go she dumped it, ran across the field 200 yards and pulled the contents of a bin out then scoffed the remnants of some kind of burger in a bun

    Well, that was her one and only chance and she blew it. Never again.

    I can guarantee being stuck behind someone slow if I am in a rush. Some people act kind they have all day.

    I speak from personal experience.

    The good news is that they are very clean, as they just make sweet-smelling compost, so you just pick the babies out of the butter, and carry on spreading it on your toast.

    Minus the stick insects.

    'Cos today's 'Dontone's Irritation' is a shout out to the s*ddin' cat who must have had a heavy night on the beer last night, and decided to deposit the remains of the heavy sesh on our lawn. Cue the Basset Hound rejoicing in this opportunity to cover himself in said 'eau de parfum' and run into the house. He was going to have a bath anyway, but this just hastened the process. Cat poop smells..........bad!!!! And once you get the whiff up your nose, it takes ages to go.
    That, and I've had a migraine, big fat MEH!! to today.

    The mind-boggling stupidity of some anti-vaccers.
    The fact that we're still vaccinating against the same diseases we were vaccinating against 20 years ago is proof they don't work apparently, otherwise they would have been wiped out and we wouldn't need to vaccinate against them any more.
    It's all a big conspiracy to inject mercury in to our brains because...erm...well, they never manage to come up with reasons but the government and big pharma are definitely out to get us.

    Its the October holiday so that means woken at 6am by neighbours kids above me, them running about on their laminate floor which is against social housing rules, kids slamming doors and dropping toys for hours each day.


    Even when they go out or come back in you hear the parents laugh and encourage their kids to be noisy and kids scream and run up then hear them running indoors.


    To be fair thats about the only issue I have with them but its such severe noise when there is it.

    Today's 'Dontone Irritations'

    Was queuing in Primark this morning, and I was next in line, when an old fella behind me poked me in the shoulder and said 'no. 4 is free'
    Where I was stood had a few folk blocking the cashiers little space, so I didn't see the person who had been served before move away. The lady didn't even have chance to press the buzzer to tell me, and I have this impatient s*d poking me telling me she was finished.
    I hope you read this, and I hope the said finger suffers an extremely painful paper cut - so there!!!
    Also, you can't move in the shops for Halloween/Trick or Treat tat. It's an American custom that has no place here. Especially when, 364 days of the year, paranoid parents tell their little darlings not to accept sweeties from strangers. What's so different about October 31st?
    And finally Ebay. They have done some changes, and decided to make the 'unsold' page 'easier to use' I'm trying to revert it back, but have no luck. Some of us were more than happy clicking a button that did relisting in bulk - why has that been replaced by a 'delete' icon? Why would we want to delete things? And don't get me started on the Seller Hub they want us to us. Neither use nor ornament. I can't be the only one not happy with it. JUST LEAVE THINGS ALONE!!!!
    That is all, carry on.

    That's on a par with waiting at lights, and have someone behind you toot when, yes, you have seen the lights have changed but you're actually in the process of putting the gearstick into first and letting off the handbrake.
    Just because I don't ride the clutch or rev the accelerator while I'm waiting doesn't mean I'm not keeping an eye on the lights.

    Apologies to you, hooter person, for making you wait an extra nano second, not.

    It's so rude.

    (It's different if it becomes obvious someone hasn't seen a green light - especially when it's a filter left, etc. - due to a much longer length of time passing).

    Totally agree with you here! On the Halloweens, I don't work, I have never answered the door. I switch off the doorbell on the circuit board. Yes the amount of tat is ridiculous. When I was a child, shops only had witches hats, hooked noses, vampire teeth, warty fingers, fake blood and face paints.

    I'm not keen on the phrase Happy Halloween as its not a happy occasion. Don't understand why teenagers throw eggs at houses, cars. Many shops including mine as we sell a small range of food not to sell eggs and flour to anyone under 18 normally for a fortnight around Halloween and bonfire night. It's a disgusting experience to remove dried on eggy flour mess

    Though the following day, I pop into Sainsburys to get half price sweets and cakes. The former are generally in a Halloween themed outer packaging but actual sweets are wrapped in normal design packaging

    Your first paragraph is true. We had a school disco, and all the kids wore a daft cardboard witches hat. The Mam's liked it 'cos they could sit in a huddle (or coven, depending on who's Mam turned up lol ) and have a chin wag while we 'danced'
    Dunno where you are, but we have a sort of annoying tradition called 'mischevious night' where teenagers throw eggs at your windows. The shops are asked by the police not to sell stuff like that on that day, but kids get them anyway.
    One year a kid on a bike bombarded our house with rubbish. We are still waiting for the police to turn up 4 years later. It was horrendous.
    That time of year, Halloween, & Bonfire Night gets right on my nerves. I think it's a tremendous rip off.
