"What irritates you Monday" is a meme thought up by Delores from The Feathered Nest.
Here, on a Monday, we get a chance to vent our little, or not so little, things that irritate us.
It doesn't have to be something on that particular Monday, it can be anything that irritates you any day of any week.
Today, my irritation is....
Here in Australia, every winter, there is an advertisement on television showing a woman sneezing.
The sneeze has been captured on slow motion camera so that every sprayed droplet is clearly visible.
This is usually played around dinnertime and is quite vomit-inducing if you happen to be eating at the time.
Playing it with classical music doesn't make it any more appealing.
It's meant to make people more aware that we are in flu season and should get a flu shot.
Nothing at all is mentioned about covering up sneezes and coughs so that you don't infect others.
No mention of proper and frequent hand washing either.
Shame on them.
