If you could put something in the bin
What would it be ?
I’ll start
Being called love by a shop assistant who is 30 years younger than me !!

I hop it’s a big bin calamity 😀
The reel of sellotape I’ve been trying to find the end of for the last few minutes....I know the end is there somewhere 😡

I’m binning this b****y lurgy cough! Please make sure it goes to the incinerator and not for recycling!

The bottle of bleach that I cannot open because of that push down while gripping tightly and trying to turn at the same time technique. angry

Drivers who don’t acknowledge me when I stop to let them pass

Marydoll Tue 26-Feb-19 22:25:44

People who walk through shop doors, while I'm holding them open and never say, "Thank you!"

The sign in my local hospital that indicates where I should go - " Care of The Elderly".
Some day I will climb up and remove it!

Patsy70 Tue 26-Feb-19 22:34:59

Anyone who drops litter,throws it out if the car window or fly tips goes in my bin.

Jalima1108 Tue 26-Feb-19 22:58:46

Yes, litter bugs and perhaps they should go in the recycling bin and come out with a social conscience, eager to save the planet!

merlotgran Tue 26-Feb-19 23:15:00

All unnecessary packing on deliveries from Amazon.

Assuming it's a recycling bin of course!

All the flipping nuisance callers!

Stupid new fridge: just discovered it takes an all-in wrestling match to remove lowest shelf and crisper drawer for cleaning! Nearly broke the [email protected]#$ thing. Cost a fortune, tooangry

PageTurner Wed 27-Feb-19 03:40:50

People who borrow things and don't return them in a timely manner.

The bottle of bleach that I cannot open
Rather ironic isn't it.! "Push down and twist" is supposed to provide "child-proof safety", but all it seems to do is make life difficult for ancient arthritic wrists trying to open a bottle of arthritis pain killers. shock
One solution, short of taking a hammer to the bottle, is to have a child around. They can do it in a flash; no worries! grin

Drivers of cars that were apparently built without indicators.

Fly tippers and litterbugs

I may be back.....

Oldwoman70 Wed 27-Feb-19 07:01:22

Can I add those drivers who don't recognise the flashy thing on my car means I want to turn right and stop across the entrance to the road I want to turn into!

I'm sure I have many other things to go into the bin - I'll go away and have a think

kittylester Wed 27-Feb-19 07:14:34

Lots of things!

The op rang a bell. I had lunch out with DH and two DDs last week but the only person to be called 'my love' was me. Cheek.

1inamillion Wed 27-Feb-19 07:26:14

Rude people.
Arrogant young doctors, had enough of those lately.

As Nina say, I may be back.

Roadworks where no one is doing anything .
“That place”

Re; the bleach . I jam the bottle tightly in the door and turn and it comes off no bother .
