Indeed, everyone has their mild irritants, including me ;)



Just others don't get a shitstorm for complaining about them :lol:

My hay fever for 2012 has arrived with a vengeance. At 4am. Needless to say, I don't have the necessary drugs to deal with it to hand and I'm currently waking up the whole street with a sneezing fit :x

It seems to be "2 pennies worth" up here :P

WPMOT: I've never been one for drinking that much, but it has suddenly occurred to me how annoying it is that I now can't at all. Maybe it's just the fact I'm 22 and it feels a bit drastic.
How on earth do you end up missing something you only did occasionally because most of the time you didn't feel like it? :lol:

It seems that Einstein here booked the wrong return flight from Hellfest, and it's gonna cost me £60 to get on the same one as everyone else that I meant to book in the first place. Just what I fucking needed :x

Car insurance!!!
Admiral have very kindly put my premium up to £599 from £415 last year.
Or if I want to pay it monthly I can pay 1x£71 and 9x£70.

Thankfully the annoying fat opera singer has come good for me again, feels like deja vu,
and come up with a cheapest of £500.32 paying monthly, my preferred method.

Looks like it'll be three different insurers in three years then.

I'm on my fourth in four years. The companies just don't seem to care about retention, only new customers.

The other half is on his way back home. However, flights in May are looking alright.

Doesn't bother me, but considering I was with Tesco for 6 years, it's all gone downhill since
then, in terms of me getting a good price one year, then it contniuing. Now it's good price one year
and then goes up on average £200 without claiming. It's done that for the past three.
If I'd had a claim, I could understand a jump and I know I've claimed once in the last 5 years,
but that wouldn't mean it goes cheap, high, cheap, high.
When I left Tesco my renewal from them was more than double what I paid the previous year and that
was with a claim.
Just me/others having to pay for other peeps' indiscretions.

...and for the complete cunts who don't have insurance/road tax/M.O.T. :x :x :x

I'm due to start a late shift at work in an hour and I have had a really evil head, neck and shoulder ache since waking up this morning at 6 a.m. It just won't budge!I can't take a day off sick as I'm on still on probation and am returning to work after 10 days off (rest days and days off in lieu)

Bloody hate doing essays that I'm not finding particularly engaging when my hormones are all over the place. Pre-disposed to miserable thoughts, that just bubble to the surface when I get fed up of the section I'm reading. Urghhh. Also, the cat has been sick again. :(

Admiral have come up cheapest for me for the past 3 years, but that was when I'd been searching and then using new quotes, rather than accepting the renewal quotes, which seems silly to me. Elephant (who are Admiral under a different name) came up best for my new car, surprisingly only £50 more per year than my old car despite the big jumps up...still costing me £950 though :/

ie, have to say Admiral have always been best for me too, i'm up to 3 years no claims and got my renewal for just under £400; called them to say i was considering cancelling the policy as i dont use my car much due to uni, they said if i kept the policy they'd knock it down to £350. No complaints there so i stuck with it :D
