speaking of bags that do not open, grocery store plastic bags for produce..I hate those things.

and while in the supermarket I will complain about the dope bagging the groceries who screws up and puts the can goods on the bread. I take my time and place heavy stuff on the conveyer belt 1st so bag that stuff up and stop bruising my tomahtoes!!!

Wet your fingers and rub thumb forefinger back and forth.

Good luck.

Cheers

People who pass you in the right lane and then cut left in front of you. Extra credit if they don't use turn signal.

Guilty and guilty. And if you're driving below the limit in the left lane on the highway, I will pull into the lane to the right, not signal, cut diagonally in front of you and slow down, hoping that I've cut you right into the median.

What can I say? I'm a road rager. I know, shocking, right?

People that, after you answer a work call like this:

"Good morning, this is Ben, can I help you"?

immediately ask "Ben"?

:shoot:

I bag my own for just that reason and I almost always use the shelf check out.
I will admit I worked as a cashier in a grocery store for a while when I was in HS. We would have gotten fired if we did any of that.

Remember the time that the actress Mercedes McCambridge called you and answered just that way? But I guess that's just the way the Mercedes Bens.
(Yes. I truly am ashamed). :facepalm:

If there is no self check, I usually hustle to the bagging area and start bagging my own. I tell the cashier/bagger that I used to work in a grocery store (J. Bildner's in Boston, if anyone remembers it) so I am picky. LOL

The "Lottery person" in line at the convenience store. They have the clear envelope full of lottery, powerball, pick 6, pick 4, pick 3 tickets to run thru the machine. Then they have the fistful of scratch offs to check and Lord help us if they ave a few winners!! Because now you have to wait for them to go thru the case and pick out new ones!! :shoot::shoot:

People who leave you a five-minute voicemail, and then provide an inaudible call-back number in like 0.73 seconds because they suddenly realize they're rambling.

And the corollary to that are the ones who buy scratch tickets and then continue to stand at the counter while they scratch them.

People who like to supervise (i.e. tell you what to do and how to do it) but not actually PARTICIPATE in doing chores.

A long time ago, I used to move houses (Allied)...one of the worst jobs that you could ever get...back breaker/hernia gonna happen type gig. I loved the old ladies that were looking over your shoulder when you were moving their piano...and "helping" you. "Better not hit that corner...you were getting really close there. Don't miss that step!" And they're there for the whole move. :banghead:

I think it's legal to kneecap those people.

Been a while for the peeves thread. I got a million of them.

Surveys

I buy a chocolate frappe and two days later, the soda jerk sends me a survey. :coffee:

Cheers
