I must admit I've felt the temptation to shopping cart rage--e.g. when I've encountered inattentive parents of unruly children, people who use a bazillion coupons, welfare recipients who buy cigarettes and beer, etc.--but I've never acted on it.

This is only about an hour away from me, and this is just a variation of what a lot of people around these parts would like to do to you with their cars!

He looks like a serial killer. She’s lucky to have only gotten the cart.

Around here it’s usually the little old ladies (term used loosely) who constantly bump me in the bum when I’m merely waiting my turn in line. It’s not like ramming their cart against me is going to get the 6 people ahead of me to hurry up. And then they block the aisels and take forever deciding which roll of tp to pick up. Argggg, sometimes it’s very hard to be respectful to one’s elders.

There, for the grace of God, goes I.

My favorite grocery store scenario is the woman who turns her cart sideways, blocking the aisle, and then goes into some sort of hypnotic state while staring at the shelves.

“Excuse me,” I say. Nothing. “Excuse me,” I say again, this time a little firmer. Still nothing.

Then I move her cart while she gives me a dirty look.

That’s only superceded by the moron who invented the little kiddie shopping carts so mom and their precocious little baby can tag team and really block the aisles, or better, bounce right into the same side as my hip replacement.

"... people who use a bazillion coupons..."

I agree with the inattentive parents and welfare bums, but what do you have against people trying to save money? I have been behind some folks who don't even begin to go through their coupon collection to pick out the ones they need beforehand, but people with coupons in general are no problem.

I use coupons and they’re always ready to go. I plop them down for the cashier as she’s ringing up my order.

What really ticks me off is the people who wait until the entire order is rung up and they see the amount to BEGIN to fill out their check in the check book. If you want to pay by check, fine, have it ready except for the number (surely you know what store you’re in) and DON’T USE THE EXPRESS CASH ONLY LANE. ARGH!

There’s still no cause to knock over an old lady. When I’m behind one, I give them the benefit of the doubt using computery type gadgets; it’s just beyond what many old folks can deal with. Even I have trouble figuring some of them out. Every store has to have a different kind of credit/debit card machine that operates just a little different that the others.

I really wish there’s be some standardization on those things; it WOULD speed up the procedure.

I have been behind some folks who don't even begin to go through their coupon collection to pick out the ones they need beforehand, but people with coupons in general are no problem.

I like to see people using coupons. My pet peeve are those people who wait until all the groceries are totalled and bagged and THEN it dawns on them that they have to pay for them. So they start fumbling through their purse looking for their checkbook and then spend ten minutes s-l-o-w-l-y filling out the check.

I never write checks anymore since the advent of debit cards, but back in the olden days when I did write checks, I always made sure I had the date, the name of the store and my signature filled in while I was waiting so all I had to do was write in the total.

I guess that makes too much sense.

Don’t these ijuts understand that swiping a debit card is the same as writing a check? Even Food Stamps are on a debit card.

While we’re on the subject...when the heck did the grocery store become an ersatz amusement park for kids? I’m talking about those shopping carts that have a plastic car stuck on the front for the kiddies to ride around in. Those things clog up aisles left and right.
