ON THE SMALL MATTER OF DISHES JENGA (AND THE OTHER LITTLE THINGS THAT GET US IN A TIZZY).

Having stopped over at Joey's place and read this, a list of the top ten things that cause us most aggravation, I simply had to comment.

Urine on the seat or floor.

Hmm! I think I can safely say this winds most of us up. But what about the ... positioning of the Toilet seat?

Ah! That age old chestnut that I'm led to believe has resulted in many a heated row discussion though, unlike the squeezing of the toothpaste tube from the middle (I hold my hand up to this one), its not problematic in the Terry residence.

You see, there's only two of us in the house and thankfully Mr T (he who comes from a family where the male of the species outnumber the female by 4 to 1) is well trained when it comes down to, well, making sure that the toilet seat is left down which is just as well as not for one single moment (male visitors take note) has it ever crossed my mind that it belongs in any other position.

Then remaining with the positioning of things, there's not so much the not replacing the toilet roll (though that, be warned, does wind me up) as there is the ... positioning of the toilet roll.

Once again there is only one correct position and, as has been borne out in this 124 year old diagramthat is my way over the roll and NOT under it. Something I choose not to make a big fuss about but I admit to having changed the position of the loo roll not only in our bathroom but in that of friends (sorry) and even public toilets.

And finally, from the bathroom to the kitchen, there's the matter not so much of dishes left in the sink as the playing of dishes Jenga

Dishes Jenga? 

Let me explain ...

You may have heard (perhaps even played) Jenga the game in which Wooden Blocks are stacked in a tower and players take turns removing pieces trying not to cause the tower to fall over ...

Well! One of us is accused of playing it not with wooden blocks but with ... dishes; the aim of the 'game' being that said person (big hint, it isn't Mr T) stacks washed dishes to drain in what is said to be a somewhat precarious manner until the other one of us has cause to remove them without causing the pile to topple.

Which of the 10 'little' things linked to at the top of this post most winds YOU up? Or perhaps you'd care to spill which 10 'little' things other than those listed most get you in a tizzy.
