great post lynn!! so so true...

how about this one:

You are in the self-serve line ringing up your stuff and had finished (mind you are by yourself so doh you can't do two things at once)up then are in the process of bagging your items going at a normal pace for someone who isn't a bagger at a grocery store and some eejit/biatch starts up right behind you and starts ringing her shit up while you are still bagging so as to mix up your stuff with hers! CAN 'T YOU WAIT A FEW SECONDS FOR ME TO FRIGGIN FINISH FOR GOD'S SAKE!!! I mean how hard is it to just wait . No consideration for the person in front of you. Oh wait let me become "Speedy Gonzales the bagger" so that you can ring up your stuff cuz you are more important than anyone else..

May i take this out of the grocery store for a moment...
The number 2 reason i absolutely loathe and despise theme parks (D-land, ahem)
is because the people WITH STROLLERS stop, just friggen stop right there in the flow of traffic,
right there in the middle of the line of people to answer a phone,
feed their babies or argue with their spouse about which way to go.
I think they are so inconsiderate to just stand there while the line of people start packing up around them.
I have actually yelled at people to get the f out of the way that do this.



But this also applies to the grocery store, just with carts.

Maddy told me to check this thread out. And she said to never go marketing with UberBeaver

I think I go into the market maybe a handful of times a year. Probably once around birthday party time to get a few things. Not my job

I work in a grocery store too. One of my coworkers and I keep talking about making a list like this, but now we don't have to.

My biggest pet peeve though is line jumpers - people who think that they're better than everyone else and when you say "I can help the next person in line" they translate it as, "I'll help you, Your Highness, because you look like you're better than everyone else."

Another thing that annoys me is $1-$2 purchases on debit cards/credit cards. Slows everybody down to a snail's pace. I long for the days before plastic money.

Not really annoying, but funny though, is when people confuse our store with other stores - bringing in coupons, asking for stuff that they ordered (to be delivered to the other store) and we have to explain that WE ARE NOT THAT OTHER STORE.

I won't even get into the weirdos I encounter on a daily basis...

One of my personal favorites is the troglodites that pick up milk or eggs, etc. back in the dairy section of the market, then decide when they reach the soup aisle or the frozen foods section that they've found the PERFECT spot to put aforementioned products they don't want/need/can't afford.

Walk your effin' fat asses back to the proper place in the store & return the item to the effin' shelf it belongs on!!!!!

I could go on & on, but lynnok did such a wonderful job there's really no need.

That's so great! I'd seriously be proud! Did you get a medal? A gold-plated bag, perhps? They could have the "environmental bagging competition" these days..at least in Canada. Many of the big chains are offering heavy-duty sacs as plastic replacements. You can really fit a lot more in them, plus you're reducing waste dramatically.

I can definitely be a grocery store jerk. Usually, I reserve that mode for attacking managers who have just one cash open for 100 or so shoppers

I hate those stupid carts with the car for kids on the front of them. They're so wide that they take up almost the whole aisle, and the people who use them think they can plop their kids in there and ignore them no matter what they do

My store has started selling canvas bags for 99 cents each. I have two, and now I rarely need any plastic bags, and the ones I bring home I use for cleaning the kitty box

Actually I won a TV And at 18 years old that's a great thing!

I was seriously the fastest most efficient bagger ever, and then when I was a checker I was the fastest checker. Everyone would always come to my line because I loved to go fastttttttttt.
