. . . . . a wet shower curtain is one of life's unpleasantnesses. This morning I was 'hugged', managed to unwrap myself and keep it away by positioning the shower head towards it. This set me thinking about some of the others, for me they include slugs, gravy, condensation, spiders and slippery wet leaves.

What are yours? (The A word is taken for granted and not to be mentioned.) DD

    Life's unpleasantnesses?

    Hm, yes, I have a similar-if-different bath problem when I first sit on the bath lift's plastic seat which is invariably cold and wet.

    Using a bar of soap after either a small child or a large husband. You always have to clean the soap first.

    The taste of something which isn't what you thought it was. No matter how good in itself, if you eat it thinking it's something different it will taste horrible.

    More an annoyance than an unpleasantness but the small, slight smears of low-level grease which I can see clearly while doing other, urgent tasks but which disappear whenever I have time to tackle them.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Paper cuts. I have a doozy on my left forefinger, just under the middle knuckle. Needless to say I am hitting it regularly as I go about my daily business. :roll: May I also add the smell of burnt toast?

    Numpty? Crikey, I know exactly where you are coming from with that one. YUK. Viller, I empathise, I share some of those too. Sticky? I know about those grease-smears, damned awkward aren't they? DD

    Public service bureaucrats. When I'm forced to deal with those, I tend to take my chainsaw with me, which leads me to another nasty unpleasantness: starter difficulties with the said chainsaw. And packaging with a easy-to-open stickers on them. When you finally succeded to open the thing you have to repaint the kitchen. Vipers in the underwear drawer come to mind. And chinese hornets.

    Definitely gravy, DD. Daddy longlegs. The cobwebs that fill the greenhouse. Condensation inside the car.

    I agree with spiders especially the big hairy legged type, smell of off milk (makes me gag!), fish especially next day after cooking! and food left in sink plug hole after OH has washed up.
    I think that's a good start!! :lol:

    Mig you make me laugh!! :lol:

    Walking past smokers before you can get into the pub. Smelly people. Dog poo on the pavement. Road rage. Inconsiderate people. Lack of time to do my things. Thats probably enough for now, I might start ranting.......

    The small rodent in the shower after the eldest has had one, (hair), the wet towels on the floor in the bathroom.....the wet towel on the floor in the 'cloakroom' and the wet towels on the floor in her bedroom.

    (She spent the day here today as her car was in the garage :roll: but I do love her anyway :D )

    Seriously I think you all said most of mine unless treading on a snail was omitted?

    Love

    My paper cut is no more - my insect bites however . . . . . an ongoing tale of itch and bleed. :roll:

    More of life's un-necessary unpleasantnesses: bird droppings on my car, the sticky stuff the trees around here deposit (on my car) and earwigs. I found one in the freezer. :shock: It was still mobile but obviously feeling the cold! :lol: DD

    Right now the berries from the bush near the dustbin keep entering the house in a squashed state on the soles of shoes.

    When one is out and about (and needing to use a pulic loo) it's the scrabbling for the end of the toilet roll which is an un-necessary irritation. I always leave the end easy to grab for the next person and always appreciate when the same happens to me. DD

    People whose only topic of conversation can be summed up in the words 'Other people are so much inferior to me'. The people, place and situation vary but the message is relentlessly the same.

    I think we all know one person like that, I certainly do. The moral high ground only has room for them, yes? Most irksome, especially when I want a look at the view! :lol: DD
