Forum rules state that when this happens the person has to be made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while crowds chant Shame! and throw lumps of excrement at them.

Rules are rules.

Well, you're doing better than me. Didn't help that i started the day with a hangover and that i'd fallen asleep on the sofa (again!). I think it's said that exercise helps short term. I think the symptoms lessen during the exercise and for a bit after. I also took vit C and my first dose of meds. I'm feeling a bit more livelier now actually - i'm sat upright, cuppa tea, thinking about having a wander.

It is. Late May onwards for about 5-7 weeks is grass pollen, which is what most people suffer with. If you have it mildly then you'll probably sneeze a bit more than regular and have the itchy runny eyes. I get a sore throat when i'm unable to breathe through my nose.

****ing Amazon... I requested to return something a couple of days ago via a locker, and it said I had until 6th July to send it back. I just went to put the label on so I could drop it off this morning and it says the locker was only reserved for 24 hours, which ended at midnight last night! Why state that I've got until the 6th of July then?! I'm just in a chat with customer services and they don't seem to understand the problem. I asked why they're telling me I've got until the 6th of July to return it via a locker when the locker code was only valid for the first 24 hours of that 30 day period and they just said "Oh I see." I had to work out myself that to get another locker code I had to cancel the refund and request another to get a new code. The solution "Blythe" offered was to take it to a post office, pay for postage myself, send them a photo of the postage receipt and get a refund for that.

Edit: I got to the locker and the slot it had assigned was too small

People that send voice clips regularly instead of writing what they want to say. I love the feature and love hearing someone’s voice clip when it doesn’t require an immediate response but I can’t keep pausing what I’m doing (TV, switching rooms to one unpopulated) to hear they’re about to eat cornflakes.

This could be the heat talking, but I just don't have time for people who can't cope with fish having bones in it.

I read a restaurant review and people were slating it because the fish had bones.

^ I could talk all day about people's annoying food opinions, but "This dead animal has bones in it" and "This fish smells like fish" are surely in the top 10 that seem very, very common in the UK.

^ People are missing out on taste and flavour! This weekend i'm going to the fish market to get some fish to barbecue. Barbecued whole fish is so tasty. I'm really excited because I've only recently started eating fish again and so I must have been a child the last time I had barbecued fish! I've already set my alarm for Saturday to get there early .

Actors that muffle. Why do Directors not have a word, especially when it’s a main character?! Also cannot bare how you have to constantly have the remote at the ready to turn the TV the hell down when they have music pounding in between but then go back to their muffling conversations. Add in my mum’s inability to watch anything without talking through the entire thing. It’s hardly ever related to what’s happening on the screen either so it’s impossible to get into what you’re watching.

How local newspapers even use product recall announcements as clickbait. Deliberately vague headlines posted somewhere ("Tesco RECALL potentially FATAL item"), then endless scrolling through adverts and videos to get to what the actual product is.

^ Most local newspaper websites have become soooo unusable with the ads & videos, even with an adblocker they're a mess.
