Oh, pointing is something I rarely do.

Inconsiderate people annoy me (and there are a heck of a lot of them around, I know!).

Oh, OK. I guess that is not so bad. Just indulge them, take it as a compliment and move on.

It's getting dark earlier and that is beginning to annoy me.

Geez! Never thunk about that. I carry ID.

Boredom can annoy me but I just go and do something.

LOL, I have done that before ... then I realized I can actually wake myself to command. So, that has never bothered me again ... unless my mind goes into "what if" mode. :lol

People who vaccuum really early in the morning or very late at night annoy me.

My neighbours do that all the time.

I do that generally around the time change.

not being able to post as Internet being a pain.

As I said before, I really only have one neighbor and if she were to vacuum, I have never heard her. Truth be told, she could go on vacation and I would not notice for quite some time.

I had Internet issues for the best part of 6 months! This has been an ongoing saga over 3 years. I kept telling them exactly what the issue was but they never actually did anything, which would permanently resolve it. It ended up more as 3 months on and 3 months off! It got to the point where they were refusing to do any more and very close to not providing the service at all.

This last time, I began at their highest level. No action though. Eventually, the guy I am dealing with goes on vacation for a couple of weeks and hands it over to his boss. Then the sh1t really hit the fan because it was him that caused the stalemate and awkward position. I did not pull some of the strokes I have pulled in the past, because I ended up not needing to. An email to the new CEO, got things back in action by getting two of his managers to use some lateral thinking to try and work around the issues. They took their time and listened to me. I helped them weigh up the options (because they were not overly technical people) and we took a chance. I am pleased to say that it has worked out.

NOW, I can get back to work and earning money!

The whole thing, over 3 years has affected me badly but it also really annoyed me!

I feel sorry for you having all those issues over the years. I have been quite lucky that way. My internet shuts down every so often but starts up again shorty after but I think its the wiring.

So stay out in the country i am guessing. I used to stay in the country, quite liked it for a while anyway. Out towards Lochend but not as far.

I guess not being able to sleep.

There are lots of Lochends! :lol

Yeah, I am over 4km from the exchange.

Oh, I will extend from my last post...

I hate red tape! :drink

I know it has a purpose and it can work well, if designed well but most of the time it just consumes extra resources. I'm pretty well known for working around the systems or even just plain ignoring them! :lol

That's not so bad. Only a dozen houses and 10 mins away from town. Nice scenery too. Ruined if you have a bad neighbor though! :drink

I don't either. I do move around quite a lot. :)

It bugs me how much fuss is made over energy saving at times. Heat is considered a waste product so much and yet people pay to convert energy to heat just to toast their a$$es. What's the big deal about having a bit of waste heat from say a light-bulb offsetting the cost of heating the place? Businesses closed down. Debateably toxic chemicals used. Source of said chemicals are China, making them a monopoly. More hazardous, toxic waste, higher production costs (including heat input), inferior lighting quality as these are said to be equivalent and yet are not. Total nonsense! All that has been done is stir things around a bit and give the Chinese more control globally.

Haven't thought much about it but I do agree with you.

Londoners. We had this show called chewing the fat and they found it hard to understand and needed to use subtitles :lol

They can be so isolated. Out of touch with the rest of the country. I recall something like that but not the show. Must have been good if they wanted to watch it! :drink I always say: there is an off button. People seem unaware of this or unprepared to use it.

The left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing annoys me. Shuffling from one department to another, can be a part of this and that too annoys me. An entity should function as a unit.
