To shop or not to shop

Delivery....the delivery man might not make it back to work lol! Besides that, we don't have a grocery or any other store for that matter, that delivers .

I do agree that sometimes human contact is needed. I tend to get plenty of that at work tho lol.

These are my top peeves about shopping:

1. 14 crying, whining, misbehaved childred being herded through the store by ONE parent and/or babysitter.

2. People who see each other every day but feel the compulsion to catch up on the last five hours since they've seen each other - in front of the bread or in the middle of produce.

3. People whom I'VE just seen an hour ago at work want to catch up on personal information. Somehow they figure I'll more forthcoming away from work where I'm surrounded by numerous strangers and instead in the middle of a supermarket surrounded by numerous strangers.

4. People who try to evaluate you personality and lifestyle based on what they find in your basket. Peanut butter and jelly IS a food group. Get over it!

5. 18 closed check out lanes, 2 open ones with 45 people in each line.

6. Cashiers with a bad attitude.

7. Other shoppers with a worse attitude.

8. Squeaky carts or broken carrying baskets.

9. People in the 20 items or less lane with at least 75 itmes.

Those are the ones that bother me the most. I love going to the store either after 11 at night or before 6 in the morning. Even then I sometimes run into people I know! LOL

LOL. Well it is too true, add a couple of more.

Why do people always stop and chat in the middle of the isle instead of moving it on over to the side.

Why cant people walk like they drive on the right, or if your in certain countries on the left. Or if they drive like they walk, then dont follow them around and god help you if you meet them head on.

Whatever happened to common curtasy, if I've only got one item and cash in hand don't make me stand behind you while you unload your three carts and then write a check.

Why do people have to find exact change when there is a line behind them.

Thanks for the post lets me vent a bit as well.
