AIBVU, but I have the rage. Anyone care to join me?

*People putting leaflets, charity bags and junk mail through my door despite having now 4 different stickers on asking them not to.

*People ignoring what you've asked and answering the question they think you should be asking.

What non-issues bother you?

Charity bags make good free bun liners

Grumpbum123 Wed 27-Mar-19 18:37:04

Bin not bun

PeapodBurgundy Wed 27-Mar-19 18:42:26

I used to use them for that, but we've recently swapped to re-usable bin liners so we have no need for them any more. I've been posting them back to the charity with a note because I'm pissed off with the constant stream of crap through the door when we're trying to reduce our waste output. I'm a right mardy arse today!

Also trying to decide if Grumpbum is poking fun at me

I love the charity bags and wish they'd send more. But then, I have three young kids so always have a bag of clothes they've outgrown ready to go to charity, the bags save me a trip!

SpeedyBojangles I won't donate in the bags, they frequently get stolen here (rough area) so anything we donate goes to the shop.

Not the point but reusable bin liners?! shock

So many questions...

When people don't indicate on roundabouts when they are coming off at the place you are joining.

The several customers i has today who blamed me personally that we were short staffed and that i was on my own and it took too long for me to serve them.

After the 5th person was really rude i told them to take it up with my ceo.

After the 10th i burst into tears.

Makes me rage that we get it in the neck for management decisions.

I got a laminated letter through my door about changing utility provider today. On the back it said not to throw away as ‘random names’ would return to collect it. (And no doubt try and get you to sign up).

It’s in the recycling.

PengAly Wed 27-Mar-19 20:36:09

Im not being goady at all, promise but the phrase "Gives me the rage" seriously pisses me off. What the fuck does that even mean??? Rage is an emotional state.."The rage" doesnt even make sense angry

How do reusable bin bags work? Do you then just empty it into the outside bin? Doesn't it stink? And then having to wash the bag out? All seems a lot like too much hard work to me.

Lokidokiartichoki Wed 27-Mar-19 20:41:09

I play online scrabble against my sister, have been for a couple of years. Was equally matched, with me winning slightly more often (1932 games to her 1846)

All of a sudden she’s getting 7 letter words every turn, most of which I have no clue what they mean and have to look them up.

She said she’s started using an online anagram solver, but can’t see that it’s cheating and spoils the game.

I know ‘if you can’t beat them join them’ but I don’t see the point in cheating so I just blocked her from inviting me to a game and now she is the one who is pissed off.

Princessmushroom Wed 27-Mar-19 20:44:21

I’m only here to understand the reusable bin liner. Our council only take bagged rubbish so I’m confused.

BlackSatinDancer Wed 27-Mar-19 20:44:23

Definitely agree it"s annoying when people answer the question they want to and not the one you've asked.

Princessmushroom Wed 27-Mar-19 20:52:23

Bin men leaving the bins in the middle of the drive so I have to stop, on our narrow busy lane, and get to out move it so I can back the car in.
We leave the bin on the edge of the pavement with handles facing outwards to make it easier for them, yet they can't leave it 2ft to the left or right, but bang in the middle of the drive. Arseholes.

Drivers who don't drive at the speed limit when my day is always on a schedule.
Planks who park in P&C spaces and go in the no entry route to get into one.
My ndn for simply breathing.

CallMeCarolDanvers Wed 27-Mar-19 21:00:17

I bought a 5 pack of chocolate chip cookies yesterday. The DC had one each yesterday. My plan was to give them one each today, and have one myself on my break from cleaning our fleapit house.

Bastard Husband ate my cookie angry

All the shit baubles hanging in the trees whilst walking my dog. I never noticed them before I had a dog. Actually, i did notice them, but now I know what's in them.

CheshireChat Wed 27-Mar-19 21:44:28

If I set my thermostat at 20 degrees I'm freezing, at 21 I'm roasting. WTH?!

CheshireChat Wed 27-Mar-19 21:46:07

And actually the fact that I can't tell right now if it's I set it to or I set it at angry
