Wife returned from a nice 10 days away and is grumpy, even though she's on holiday for another week as well.

Got out of bed on the wrong side me thinks

Another gripe for today

Pharmacies that collect scripts from the doctors surgery without being requested to. GP receptionists who won't process another prescription because they they have given to someone without permission.

Pharmacy assistants/receptionists who want to waste my day. 20 minutes to discover where the script was. when was it requested? How? She must have taken it already! No not at the Pharmacy she uses. Oh its at Asda 2 miles away. Then stupid questions when I walk up there to collect it. If I had dropped it in at my local place in passing, they would have delivered it this afternoon. No the bloody supermarket storm after me wanting me to pay when I pick up her stuff off the counter and walk out.

Sir Sir you need to pay. You need to stop taking scripts without authority.

Waiting for the letter to say I am banned from Asda.

Yes feeling grumpy today.

BMW drivers who tell you to eff off when you politely say indicators after you stop to let them out and they go right instead of left.

They're actually an optional extra on BMW's. Many people don't realise and fail to ask for them to be fitted,

My gripe for today is people who tell lies.

People who sit in lane two/three with nothing in the oher lanes... ****s.


And Spank. Because he keeps proving me wrong and therefore, he is stupid.
I am always right, especially when I'm wrong and nothing can change that.

Pete in your occupation and mine, its part of the job.

Just so long as its the criminals telling lies, I can accept that, other work related folk, I agree with you.
