People in suits walking around the airport talking loudly on their hands free, as if it makes them look important. Smug twats.

I find that less irritating than idiots walking around shopping centres with their phones on loud speaker and holding them out in front of their faces. They're asking for the phones to be knocked out of their hands.

Which they did, she was very happy!

Lucky her SOS I had that issue as well , and got sent around half the world, before landing on a lovely lady in the Caribbean who told me how to update my kindle Its now 9 yrs old... I simple want to replace it now.I am beginning to suspect that Brexit might be behind this. ie that Amazon will have to change it's charges/ rules for a UK no longer in Europe. As I live in Europe it could be they are trying to move me to another country .Last time I tried to log on to my UK account it asked me to 'change my account' ? baffling... Then when I tried again my account... complete with my name at the top .. came up on Amazon Germany !!! Of course there is no 'live' person to ask about these changes....

I wish we had enough GP's to go around. I am not really liking my GP, and I don't feel I am getting the best care, and she cancels appointments often and then can take several weeks to get another one. It's very frustrating, but there is such a shortage of GP's its pretty much next to impossible to find one accepting patients. I am getting to the point of just saying screw it and start going to the ER to see a doctor, because this GP is not working out and I am getting concerned about the pain in my right side. Or maybe time to find a way to see a doctor in the US. I dunno.

Purolator is such a worthless courier company.

Driver left an "attempted delivery note on the door" but we were home at the time, in fact I have been home all day, never went anywhere, and I was in the apartment at 5:10pm when the driver claims to have tried, if had tried there would be a call from the door on caller ID and there isn't oh and the phone would have rang as well and it never did and is sitting next to me.

No fun. Is this same neighbors that were causing noise and issues before?

Raining heavily here and the roof has a leak that is coming into the front bedroom. We have solar panels, and the people that put them up mustn't have sealed all the screw holes. Grrr.
