    Angry Rant Thread

    If you've got something that really annoys you and you want to rant about it, post it here .



    I hate it when at a supermarket, people put every little thing they buy into a plastic bag. I see people putting a huge loo roll in there. What's the point when only one will fit in there anyway? You may as well just carry it without that bag.

    They also put things with handles in a bag. The whole point of having a bag is so that it's easier to carry. If the item in question already had a handle on it, then why bother bagging it?

    Often people just come into a shop just for a pint of milk, of a few potatoes of something. If it's just a single item you're buying anyway, then again, why waste another bag? Just carry the damn thing!!!

    So, please, if you go shopping, try to use as few bags as possible, and re-use the ones you do use. It's only sensible.





    Anyone else?

    Carrying on with the Supermarket theme:

    Why do people insist on standing in the middle of the aisle with their trolleys? right next to where people are on the sides right next to themso it forms a massive queue right behind them all?

    My mum does it, so I havew decided to hold the trolley.

    Why do women wait until they're at the very front of the queue before getting their purse out? Especially when they pay by card!

    And why-oh-why do they spend ages afterwards blocking the checkout whilst they check their bill, tuck their card away in their purse, check their reflection in the mirror, open their handbag (which they made great lengths to close after getting the purse out) and then stick their purse etc

    Just take one step! one step away from the checkout! Then the next person could get served!

    That is annoying!

    I hate it when your walking around the isles and suddenly the person in front dumps their trolley right in the middle of the isle to go back and get something they have forgotten.... and then give you dirty looks when you move their trolley out the way so you can past

    simple, so they dont get their purse snatched whilst they have it in their hand whilst struggling with all the bags they have.

    why do blokes INSIST on putting the squishy things like bread, eggs, soft fruit at the BOTTOM of bags then loading heavy things like tins, bottles of juice, potatoes on top!? LEARN HOW TO FRIGGIN PACK!

    A young girl (I'm pretty sure she was drunk) rear ended me at a red light on my way back from skateboarding Friday night. I let her go because I didn't see any damage to my car. My neck is still a little sore--that's kind of annoying...sorry, that's the best thing I can think of--I'm too mellow lately to be annoyed by most things.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, I've really noticed that Oregon drivers are significantly worse than Ohio drivers. I'm not sure why, but something strange happens here every day. Yes, Oregon drivers are annoying.

    I use shopping bags... proper sturdy ones with wooden handles.

    And Elmo... I'm SOOOOOO with you on that one... as they'll only moan when their bread is a polygon and not square!

    Here's something that just annoyed me, why does the spar shop have to put all the on offer beer on display but have none in the fridge meaning I have to buy an extra beer out the fridge to drink while the rest are cooling off in the freezer.

    (I'm not really an alcy but I wanted a cold beer!)

    Mercedes Drivers....grrrr....

    People who leave shopping trolleys in the parking space.

    People who get to the tills, wait until it's time to pay, and then run back into the store for 20 mins to get something they forgot.

    A cashier was telling me the other day that there had been an infirm old lady shopping, taking her time getting the cash out, having problems, and some cow behind her turns to the next guy in the line and says 'Really, why do these people have to shop in my lunchtime'....I'd have throttled the stupid mare....

    Oh, and I use tonnes of bags. I put toilet paper in one bag even though it fills it 'cause I'm carrying lots of bags and haven't got room to put it under my arm. And I put things with handles into bags because I have to carry lots of bags, and things with handles tend to eliminate the ability to carry lots of bags. Lots of bags. Lots and lots. Bags. Lots of Bags. Annoyed yet?

    Then I take all my lots and lots of bags a recycle them....;D

    1. Not all blokes insist on it.

    2. I hate it when the Asda counter assistants try to be helpful and put everthing into a few bags.

    3. How easily Asda bags tear.

    4. car drivers who decide they need to pull out into the other lane when turning left or right at traffic lights as they think are driving juggernauts (not sure of spelling)

    Finally, again in Asda (you must have guessed) when overcharged for an item, have to queue for 10 minutes (or seems like it) do get a £2 gift voucher. It should be a £10 voucher.

    Neds (or chavs)who don't know the meaning of the word 'Courtesy' (which is most of them) - they annoy me to no end. I live in an area full of them and all I hear is the sound of them driving about in their cheap wee hatchbacks, with the funny exhausts - up and down the same set of streets every day that God sends. The modifications to their cars most likely cost more than the car itself. On top of that, the "music" they play whilst driving in these "cars" is absolute tripe as far as I'm concerned.

    As well as that, I hate it when I accidentally burn my fingers with my soldering gun.

    Why do holiday makers to Cornwall always decide to go shopping on the sunny days, as opposed to going to the beach, and why do them seem to think that standing in the middle of a crowded pavement having a conversation is perfectly fine. And they clog up the best pasty shops... Pah.. [/rant]
