If it's one thing I hate, it's something I can't stand.

How about getting ready to pull in camp site and there is someone in your site. Momma could not wait to get home to bath or they didn't have running water at home.

How about you go shopping and when they give you the receipt, it's 2 feet long because of the ads and survey info. Then trying to get it into my wallet

I've started tearing off all the excess while at the counter and leaving it with the cashier - makes the DW embarrassed, but why should I pay for an ad!

People who leave their shopping carts blocking the isle while they go over to the shelf to read the labels on the jars/boxes etc. Or block the isle chatting with someone they meet in the store. Come on people, move to the side of the isle so people can get by!

I asked our neighbor why they go to the grocery store on Saturday when they are retired. He said they kind of make an adventure out of it. Swell, while they slowly adventure through the store the people that only have a day or two off a week to get those things done wait for them to get out of the way.

When we retired last fall we promised ourselves not to shop when the store is mobbed. We do try to get out of the way anytime.

Hi Mark,
I'm not opposed to people doing these things(chatting and reading labels) but how much consideration and courtesy does it take to move the cart and/or themselves from the middle of the isle.


I know two couples who meet at the local supermarket at the deli for lunch on Saturday's.

Wow. That sounds like "fun"....along the lines of getting a root canal done.

People who cannot spell the word T-H-E-N. They use T-H-A-N . I see that a lot in posts.

Not returning the shopping carts to a proper place. They just park it in back of a car next to them - mine. Sometimes the shopping cart storage area is 10 more feet away.

Email: People who forward, forwarded, forwarded email and do not take off the email addresses. Everyone in the world no has my email address, as indicated by the amount of spam..

Email again: People who forward/send attachments of 3, 5, 8+ megabytes, when all they have to do is search on the attachment they received and get a URL for it. I have never found an attachment from some moive, music, cartoon, etc., that I could not find a URL for, unless it was an original. I don't have any "original" friends.

Have you tried using a spring clothes pin to close the bread bag? I got rid of those twist ties long ago in favor of the good old clothes pin - works like a charm on everything you usually secure with a twist tie.

In addition, all the sale items are already picked over. We grocery shop on Wednesday, sale adds are in Sundays paper so everything is in stock, and they have surplus meats marked down on Wednesday morning.

When has it EVER been OK for a overweight senior citizen to 'water' a pack of dogs first thing in the morning, while wearing nothing but his boxer shorts. Apparently some do not realize that there comes a time in every man's life, the shirt really does NEED TO STAY ON and the boxers are NOT for external display! EEWWWW! Should be a CG LAW! Bob

AMEN to that and add the women in spandex with beer bellies down to their knees!!!!!


Then there are the people who go through the fast checkout 12 or fewer and pay with a check and don't fill out the check beforehand ....

Those people that see you carrying 3 items and race to beat you to the checkout with a full cart.
