I am guilty of going through the quick checkout with a lot of crap in my cart. I've been called out (how do you spell reprimanded?) for it a couple times recently too. I stuff all my crap in a little cart so I don't feel like I'm buying a lot (and then it comes to $60 and I'm all, "what the hell did I buy?"). I love those little carts. If someone wants to start a thread on little things that have changed life for the better, I vote for little carts and the soda fridge packs.

"No, Ashleigh, you don't like olives, remember? Can she just taste one of the olives? Thank YEW! See, I told you. No, baby, remember, you don't like mustard. Can she just taste the mustard? No? Well...can I get must some of the mustard in a little paper cup on the side. Thank YEW! " Everything is a negotiation!!

Where I shop, it's faster to put each checked item into your bag. When people don't do that, and put the groceries in the bagging area without bagging them, that's what takes a lot of time. That's what makes people want to kill them.

R31, I never heard it until about two years ago, and now I'm hearing it EVERYWHERE. From news readers on TV, to coworkers. I work in tech, where we run scripts against databases, and the number of times I've heard "Did you ran... " or "I have ran", etc, etc.

And it's MOSTLY younger (under 40 people) doing it. When I corrected one co-worker, I actually had to explain how the "have" or "had" is already past tense. So you say "I have run the script" not "I have ran the script". He was confused, because he thought he was being correct about making 'run' past-tense. I had to explain the entire concept of helping verbs to him! WTF?

My pet peeve: Cars in an intersection waiving me through even though they have the right of way. I know they are just being nice, and I appreciate it. But in traffic it is more important to be reliable than nice. It makes others nervous when you don't act as expected. So when the car doesn't move and instead waves me through, other cars go instead. Pedestrians hesitate because they don't know if other cars notice the changed situation. Stop being nice and continue just doing what is expected.

R39 I hate that with a passion! The Pacific Northwest is full of bullshit behavior like that. You should see the inability of the general public to negotiate a four-way stop sign. You go, no you go, no sir, after you! The ridiculous thing is that this just slows down the traffic for everyone and frequently creates a dangerous situation. I have seen several car accidents happen when one person yields their right of way just to be nice, but it just created a dangerous surprise for other drivers.

Ha, I was on vacation in Mexico and stopped in a supermarket. The woman ahead of me was a local, and the checker gave her a supermarket lottery ticket. Without leaving the line, she scratched it off. She had won a prize of another free lottery ticket. She scratched it, and the prize was two lottery tickets. This kept repeating, she had her kids take turns scratching the tickets and picking the new tickets, it held up the line for over ten minutes. The final outcome was a win of zero pesos. If I hadn't been in vacation chill mode, I would have been enraged.

Another traffic pet peeve is use of the discretionary left turn (on green light). People in my town will not move into the intersection until the road is all clear for days. If the light turns yellow and then red, then there they are, stuck behind the line. At least if you move up, when the light turns yellow/red, you can make your left turn and clear out of the intersection.

So, now I can't accept. And I can't forgive. Because... because NOBODY admits anything they've done!"

In my experience this tends to be whatever person who fucked their lives up and then come, ALWAYS when you are in a rush to get to work, to check 500000 lotto tickets, (649 here in Canada... or whatever fucking lotto game du jour), make you sit there listening to the machine go "winner! gagnon! winner! gagnon!" for at least ten minutes, then proceed to go slowly, oh so slowly about their business of buying a newspaper--which they still do--while engaging the employee in inane conversation. When they finally leave there are probably five, six people waiting when there was just you before. I live in canada so it's generally geriatric white people that do this in the morning and fraus in superfluous black SUVs in the evening.

Honestly just set a fucking machine up for these people and get them to scan their own shit. Also, if you are the asshole checking tickets, shut the fucking fuck up and stop talking to the cashier/employee while he's trying to get through a line of people. You are NOT the most important person in the world.

I'm not unsympathetic toward all of you people who are "in a rush" and get stuck behind someone spending time on lottery tickets or writing checks or counting out change, because I've been in your position, often. But the very fact that it keeps happening should eventually make us realize that the world is full of oblivious dawdlers whose behavior we can't control, so the answer to our dilemma must be that we'll have to change ourselves instead.

My solution has been simple (though not necessarily easy): stop rushing. Unless I have to speed toward emergency medical treatment, I try to slow down and give myself time to complete my task and reach my destination without hurrying. I'm surprised at how often it's possible to proceed at a leisurely pace, maybe by leaving a little earlier or planning a more efficient route, and it's been well worth the minimal effort to adopt a more serene, less impatient approach.

Try it sometime -- maybe while waiting in line for an old lady to find the coupons at the bottom of her purse -- what have you got to lose?

Poor pedestrian etiquette! So many people do not know to bear left, think people should move for their fucking dog or, and this is a very NYC one, two or more people stopping in the middle of the sidewalk to yak, all entitled, special and shouting, See, we and what we am are important and we do have a friend! A social scientist who studied urban groups said he has only seen this conversation in the middle of the sidewalk and make everyone walk around in NYC.

Once on Christopher these two people were doing the conversation shit, I walked right between them as if they weren't there. Boy were they pissed! Cursed me out. I loved it. Another time, again on Christopher, the middle of the afternoon, an old gay guy is looking in a shop window, his dog is on one of those 40 foot leashes, sniffing a hydrant, 10 feet ahead and blocking the entire sidewalk. I said excuse me politely and with a big smile me. He turned, smiled, seemed pleased that a young guy wanted to talk to him. When the leash is blocking the entire sidewalk, he got all angry and said queenly, Oh go fuck off!! I laughed in his face.

What the hell difference does it make if you have one item or a full cart at the self-checkout, if there aren't any signs stating limits? (Not challenging anyone here, but I've never actually seen any such limits at self-checkouts in various grocery chains across the country.) I can scan and bag my groceries just as fast as the cashiers do, and since there are usually about six or more scanning stations another one will probably open up for you very soon , OP.

[quote] There are little roundabouts in a residential area with narrow streets. Instead of using stop signs...which would make the most sense, they did this.

I like roundabouts, want more of them in my neighborhood. I think they make traffic easier - once people get used to them. I find stop signs at intersections in residential areas much more complicated. Either because of heavy free flowing cross traffic where you never seem to be able to cross. Or the stop sign makes you stop at a position where you cannot see cross traffic yet. Parked cars block the view, so you stop, and then you crawl forward, until you almost reach the middle of the intersection and only then you notice that a car is coming from the left. Roundabouts are much easier.

Re the dopes with dogs on long leashes: it's worse in parks, where they let the dog really stretch the things out. The comments here reminded me of the times when I have encountered one of these things blocking my path and it made me annoyed enough so that I just lifted the leash up in my fist, removing Doggy from contact with the ground, by the neck, and just swung him or her around onto owner Muffy's side of the sidewalk, dropping the stunned dog there. Muffy *always* reacts with horror (she's also almost always yammering away obliviously on her phone, or concentrating hard on Instagram like a drooling moron), but almost never says a word. Problem solved. It works well with fairly large dogs, even.

While I agree that support animals have gone off the rails, there is a valid use for dogs (for example) helping epileptics and diabetics. Dogs can sense -- probably through their insanely better smell -- when a seizure is coming or when your blood sugar goes too high or too low. It's an early warning that lets the person prepare or change course. Dogs also seem to be able to detect nascent cancer better than conventional Western medicine.

I don’t have a full shipping cart but I certainly have more than 20 items in my basket when I use self checkout. I’m not unloading my groceries onto a conveyor belt, waiting for someone else to scan them and then load them back into my cart again. If I take that shit out I’m scanning it myself and throwing it in the bag — it takes half the time of waiting for someone else to do it. I separate my stuff before checking out. The frozen food first, then the refrigerated items, then the non refrigerated items. The frozen & refrigerated items go in the same insulated bag. The cat food cans go together because they’re the same price & if one doesn’t register I just scan the next one twice.

I’m fast. NY minute fast. In fact I used to live in NY and could only carry 3 grocery bags home, so I learned how to stuff a bag very thoroughly. I’ve dazzled checkout girls with my bag stuffing prowess.

Why do elderly women fill up their whole shopping cart? It’s always an elderly woman who has a completely full cart. Do they grocery shop once a year? Do they shop for their whole neighborhood? Do they stop off in nursing homes & pick up lists from all the clients? I don’t get it. I can understand that in places like Costco because they have a membership fee and I’ve heard of several people splitting the membership fee & only one person goes shopping for all of them.

But supermarkets? There’s no reason why you can’t go more than once a year. I should not see you with a brimming shopping cart, with shit teetering half out of the cart because it’s so overstuffed.

Do these rancid frau cunts not have any other place where they can talk to each other while shrieking like rabid, drunk hyenas? They all deserve to be pepper sprayed and run over.

[quote]Why do elderly women fill up their whole shopping cart? It’s always an elderly woman who has a completely full cart.

R223 My elderly mother does that when I take her grocery shopping every other week. I don't know if it's a throwback to the Depression so they buy everything on sale or if she thinks she's never going grocery shopping again. We go to three different stores and by the time we get back to her one bedroom apartment, the trunk is full and it takes a few trips to get everything to her apartment. Her fridge and freezer are full, her pantry is overloaded. I do throw out expired goods but I have to do it when she's napping but she's sharp enough to know 'something' is missing.

THAT IS NOT NEW INFORMATION TO BLACK PEOPLE, so forgive us if we don't treat it as such! Black people have always known who the GOP is and WE TOLD EVERYONE this BEFORE the 2016 election Who Donald Trump was and Who the GOP has a LONG HISTORY OF BEING! Why do you think most Black people don't fuck with the GOP... AT ALL? That 2016 Bullshit election rests squarely on the shoulders of White people (in both parties). We are not all down with everything Democrats do, but we got no fucking choice when we have a BLATANT threat to our very lives seated across the aisle! Don't get mad at me because most of your aloof and largely "unaffected" asses just woke up to the GOP! I'd like to welcome the radical left to our world. Because many White liberals have had their heads in the sand regarding "Black issues" for so long, it should be no surprise that your radical liberal agenda is being roundly rejected by Democrats!

I don't have to hide behind woke BULLSHIT and playing games of chicken with the GOP when millions of peoples lives are at stake! I don't vote 3rd party or threaten to sit shit out if I don't get my chosen candidate (who isn't even a fucking democrat!) or my list of DEMANDS from the Democratic Party. Do you know why Black people don't hold our votes hostage from the Democratic Party? Because we know what that shit means! We know that many suffered bled and died for us to have that right! We also know that throughout history (EVEN NOW) most White people don't want Black people to vote (including some ignorant, racist mutha fuckas in the Democratic Party).

The FAR LEFT WING DOESN'T GIVE A FUCK about civil or voting rights so I got no fucking use from these fucking hypocrites who want free college despite Black people being murdered in the streets daily by the police!

R396 Exactly! It's odd that some people think they're the only one who can read a room or has gaydar or whatever. Actually everyone has that 6th sense, some people are just are not as consistent with it as other.

Once I came out (and I'm not flamboyant at all) I became a lot more confident. Women and men began constantly flirting and slipping me their numbers.

Women flirt for as many reasons as men do. Some flirt because they think you're straight and want you, some just dig your vibe and want to know you (gay or straight), some know you are gay but think they can change you. I never try to figure out someone's motives unless I'm interested but I take every flirt (from a man or a woman) as a compliment!

If gay men are ignoring you R367 it is definitely a vibe you're giving off. People are reading you. I suspect you're exuding nervousness. Maybe you should get a wingman for when you go out to give you more confidence and help you read the room. Four eyes are better than two.

He said he needed to work alone, away from others, because he was anxious around people.

People can be shy and still function around others. If you don’t want to go to parties, fine. If you don’t want to go to work or meet basic responsibilities... your life is going to be very hard. Not to mention everyone will find you indulgent and exasperating. So it’s in one’s own best interest to work through it.

The person I know who had “social anxiety” got a summer job as a restaurant host. It forced him to interact with strangers on a limited basis, and forge superficial relationships with the regulars he had to make feel special.

It was also beneficial working with the rest of the staff on a shared, short term goal (having a smooth, swift shift without customer complaint, or at least disaster) and a good host really does have contact with everyone on staff, though limited contact. So that might be a good boot camp experience for direly afflicted introverts.

Good advice, R419. But you assume that the social anxiety sufferer wants to change, and not all of us do. Before I retired, I had to spend time with people every day to earn a living, but now I don't. I've outlived my husband and the rest of my family, so the non-professional aspects of life don't require me to deal with people either. I'm free to be the hermit that I've always wanted to be, so I am. The supermarket, drugstore, Costco, bank, PO, and library all have self-service machines -- medical personnel are the only people I have to meet in person and that's usually just twice a year. I wave at the neighbors if I see them across the street, but I don't trot over and chat with them. I'm no longer anxious because I'm no longer social, thank goodness!

R453, the people who order ten people's food are annoying. But you know what makes it worse. When they want to treat each person's food as a separate order, with a separate receipt. This is just as grating when it's just two people's food. Just pay the bill of 12 bucks; then show your buddy the receipt, and make them pay you back. But NOOOOOOO. Here's ten dollars for the first order. And then here's ten dollars for the second order. Give me both receipts. This happens in the grocery store too. A couple times it was a crafty way of complying with the ten-item ceiling in the express checkout. But usually it's some OCD need to keep your buddy's purchases separate from your own...even though you're doing your buddy's shopping. What's wrong? You don't want to mix the items on a single receipt, because then your buddy will see that you bought lube and condoms? It's usually women doing this, and they're usually POCs.

How about when an entire family decides to go grocery shopping in a Manhattan grocery store. There’s mom and dad and the gigantic stroller and the screaming kids who don’t want to be there. Why can’t one of the adults do the shopping alone and the other one takes the kids home? Instead they have to clog up the narrow aisles with all their paraphernalia and noisy brats. Why anyone would WANT to shop with little kids if they had any alternative at all, I don’t know. And it makes everyone else miserable, too. This chore doesn’t need an entourage.

I would literally have to be starving to death to eat at McDonalds or Taco Bell.

by Anonymousreply 47206/06/2021

Part of the problem is that these sandwich places (or taco, or burger) list so many items, I can barely read them all until I get right up to the register, let alone decide what I want. Panera is a perfect example. They used to have so many fewer items, you could read them from ten feet away. Now the entire menu is on three separate boards, all in tinytype. I don't bother going there anymore, it's so annoying.

I haven't been to Taco Bell very often, maybe six times since 1978, but the last time, the board was so crowded, it took me a while to decide what I wanted.

If someone has never been to a restaurant with a menu posted above the counter where orders are placed, they should not get in line until they've had time to read the menu while standing off to the side, and decided what they want. If they have questions about items on the menu, they should refrain from asking them and choose something that doesn't pose questions for them. It's just common courtesy not to hold up a line of people waiting to order. If there's no line, feel free to ask questions and take your time deciding what to order -- otherwise, be polite!

They looked at that fucking menu for 8 minutes and then spent the other 7 minutes conversing and asking questions from the McDonald’s employee via the mic.

R473, and now at McDonalds they have this animated dynamic display that changes. There are various combinations and “deals”, and sometimes you have to wait until it cycles back to see the price (in small type) of what a single Filet O’ Fish costs. At a regular sit-down restaurant, there’s a menu that doesn’t jump around, and you can see the price.

There’s a Sweetgreen salad takeout place near me, and there’s no menu posted anywhere that’s visible from the sidewalk. You have to go inside and presumably there’s some sort of paper menu. There’s nothing above the counter that lists the options and the prices. There’s no menu posted in the window. There are no prices on their website; you have to download the app and place an order to see how much it costs.

Okay, BE all mysterious about your esoteric price structure. I just wanted to know how much a salad would run me. I’ll go to Just Salad where it’s posted above the counter. No nasty little surprises when it’s time to pay.

One of my pet peeves is that I waited until 1973 to buy [italic]Pet Sounds[/italic] instead of buying it when it was originally released in 1966. I believed whoever the douche was who declared them "Doris Days on surfboards," and for the first time ever, failed to buy one of their records when it came out.

Thankfully, Brother Records re-released it, either in 1972 or 1973, and I bought it at the end of winter, 1973. It really was, and still is, one of my favorite albums of all time.

The experience cured me of listening to critics, and to trust my own taste.

I'd always loved the 45 of "Heroes and Villains," and I didn't even know back in 1967 that it was just a fragment of a piece of music called SMiLe. I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I bought the Good Vibrations box set and listened to disc 2. I like SMiLe even more than Pet Sounds. The two of them are among my favorite records of all time.

- Fat people who always eat a salad when you go out to eat. - Queens who always mention their wives or show everyone pictures of their kid. - People who are always on personal calls, goofing off, taking long breaks and 2+ hours for lunch bragging about working "late." - Salesmen who tell you they're giving you a huge discount when you've seen the same item online from a competitor at the same (or a lower price). - People who speak in a fake scholarly voice and show off using a lot of big words which are (unfortunately) often out of context.

There's not gonna be too many times I'm returning to a restaurant that doesn't have my favorites. I'd find a new place.

Grocery stores that discontinue your favorite items. Sometimes I think they actually use my receipts in picking which foods to stop carrying.

When people don't cut off visible manufacturer tags. Also, when people don't remove stickers (bar codes, etc.), especially from kitchen items.

Is R591 a moron, or what? What was that response even supposed to mean? How is it even remotely relevant? It's not.

Holy Shit! We have entered an alternative universe! Do the laws of physics not even apply any more? Is there no God. Is there no Muriel?
