Grocery shopping!

This is a quickie!  Just came from the grocery store.  Now, while I never actually enjoy grocery shopping…today was particularly maddening.  Why can’t people use “grocery shopping etiquet?”  Such as…when in an aisle, move your cart to the side, so others can get through.  Do not stand in the middle with your cart diagonal blocking the whole aisle.  Don’t stand in the middle of the aisle talking or texting on your phone, blocking food items and the aisle itself.    The worst today was a group of people…3 women and 2 men…one of the women was talking on her cell, while also talking to one of the other women, who was yelling into the other womans phone saying hello, how ya doin, etc.  Meanwhile their 2 carts and the other 3 individuals stood there oblivious to the fact that people needed to get through that stupid aisle!  Could we back up and try to escape the other way?  Noooo, cuz there were more equally etiquet challenged people that way as well!  Oh my God!  I was about to blow in that place today.  It can’t be that hard to figure out general courtesy…or can it?

  1. I hate it when you’re at the grocery store, and somebody is talking on one of those damned Blue Tooth gadgets, and they ask where something is to the person on the line and you think they’re asking you. You answer, and they point at their ear thingy, and you feel like an ass! These are a few of my favorite things!

  2. OMG that drives me nuts!! Grocery stores are full of inconsiderate, self-absorbed people who are so wrapped up in their own lives that they can’t take the time to recognize that there are other people trying to get their stuff and get out of there! Larry & I always try to be especially considerate when in a crowded store…..it’s just common sense and common courtesy. Most people, I think, try to be courteous…..but there are alot of jerks out there too. I wish they would pull their heads out of their butts and be a little more observant!!! Good Blog! Except now I’m mad. LOL (pet peeve)
