16 tiny stress inducers

  1. When your fitted sheet starts pinging off. Stop it stop it stop it. It’s 3am. I bought the ‘deep’ one. Not so deep now, hey? Not so bloody deep now…
  2. Sky TV freezing. Please God not now. Please God not tonight of all nights. Like there’s ever a good time for this to happen.
  3. When you accidentally press caps lock on your computer. You look up at your screen and you’ve suddenly started shouting at yourself. What did I ever do to me to deserve this?
  4. When your favourite restaurant falls off Deliveroo. What? No? Wait! It was here a minute ago? I don’t understand. I’ve been craving this for at least ten minutes. I hate the universe. Oh, alright, let’s do burgers again.
  5. When you give way while driving and they don’t say thank you. What’s WRONG with people? At least 15 seconds of bad mood to follow
  6. When an acquaintance tries to start a conversation in a very small lift with a stranger present. I don’t want to talk about my weekend and you don’t care how it was. I had garlic last night, I don’t want to speak. Or breathe. Are we even moving?
  7. When Instagram says ‘couldn’t refresh feed’. Pull yourself together Instagram. Behave. You have one purpose in life. What good are you to anyone if you can’t refresh? I hate you. And DON’T blame my Wifi. That’s just cheap.
  8. Knots in chains. This will never have a happy ending. I feel a heart-attack coming even looking at this necklace tangle. Just. Gets. Tighter.
  9. When you open the dishwasher and you see it’s mid-cycle so you close it again incredibly quickly but it doesn’t make a noise for a moment and time stands still while you wait to see if everything will be alright.
  10. When the person in front of you at the supermarket checkout till doesn’t have their card ready to pay when the last item has been rung up. What? So it’s a surprise that things need paying for?
  11. When someone tells you how fruit is loaded with sugar. *&$£#@>{
  12. When you kick a loo roll across the floor by mistake and it unwinds. And then you try and wind it back up but it isn’t right. It’s never right again.
  13. The clown emoji. Where did you come from? Why are you there? What do you want from me?
  14. When talking dirty goes slightly awry and you know you are going to carry on but you’ve got to change tack. #effort
  15. White chairs and periods. It’s never happened to me. It’s never happened to anyone I know. But white chairs and periods are still very slightly stressful.
  16. ‘Printer not found’
