What really gets up your nose?
For me, it’s cables that tie themselves in knots. Every Christmas, I put the tree lights away neatly in the box, in the loft. But next year they can take anything up to 30 minutes to untangle.
And then there’s my earphones. Every day they go into my briefcase wrapped around the iPod, but when I get to my desk . . .
Now the bloody garden hose is playing this game with me. And it has a new variation – producing a kink some thirty yards away from where I’m standing with the sprayer in my hand, wondering if someone turned the tap off.
That’s what frustrates me. So I come in here to see what’s been getting on everyone else’s tits while I’ve been sorting out my problems.
