The perp. Eeeeek!
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!
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.
Geez, what a democrat.
"You bet you @#$* I was in hurry! Crystal meth don't cook itself!"
This is your mugshot. This is your mugshot on drugs.
What’s wrong with his right eye??? Kinda looks crazy.
Kinda looks crazy? I’d say that’s pretty much what crazy looks like.
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That’s only superceded by the moron who invented the little kiddie shopping carts so mom and their precocious little baby can tag team and really block the aisles, or better, bounce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.

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.
Wow. But I can top that one by a light-year. Check out the creepy dude in this photo (don’t know how to attach pix yet...)
Truly, life imitates art.
A match made in Heaven? Or some other place?
My favorite is the person who watches the clerk check out everything and THEN pulls out the checkbook and starts writing.
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 I was, minding my own business sniffing the paint to see if it was fresh and BAM she gigs me with the cart. "
My own pet peeve is waiting in line behind people playing the lottery. They should have a special “morons only” line for the lottery players IMNSHO.
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.
Good grief, they even gave a “zoom” option on that picture! Who the hell would want to get a closeup of that thing?
BTW, I feel your pain. We used to live in a welfare community. grrrrrrrr.......
Who wins, now?
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.
I was’nt in a hypnotic stare! I was trying to figure out the per ounce price differences on the peanut butter! Now get off my back before I block you on the soda aisle too.
I'd say it's a draw.
He should be shot.
“Whose brain was it?”
“Oh, I don’t know — Abbie Somebody.”
I’m guessing he was buying a lot of cold medicine and oven cleaner.
There is a distinctive look about the, ah, “homebrewers,” no?
how about the nitwits who have debit cards and seemingly don’t know how to use them?or the a##holes who are on an express line with 42 items?and why does nobody ever use cash anymore?i don’t have a debit card-i am not anti-technology,i just don’t think i need every gadget that comes out-i have a cell phone,but it does all these other things i don’t need,so i’ve never learned how to do them-customized ringtones?what crap-and it’s worldwide-nowadays you have people who can run their lives from a phone and don’t know how a single action automatic functions :))- a friend of mine is a state trooper and i showed him one of my 1911’s and he said “what’s that?”pointing to the grip safety.and this is a sharp kid who does a real good job-modern times are just great
...the moron who invented the little kiddie shopping carts...
He should be shot.
Starting with a knee-capping...then 50 kids with little shopping carts running over him.
Hard to top the pic of the perv from NH.... ;-)
Little-known fact: Marty Feldman was one of the co-authors of Monty Python’s “The Four Yorkshiremen” sketch.
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.
“My favorite is the person who watches the clerk check out everything and THEN pulls out the checkbook and starts writing.”
You mean a woman.
Same thing I thought when I saw the photo!! Think the bug-eyed folks are related, or all on crystal meth or something?
“Now get off my back before I block you on the soda aisle too.”
Just keep out of the liquor department.
I know, just looking at the pix on this thread has me creeped out. Imagine coming across one of these whackos in the parking lot?
Close call, but I’ll go with the NH perv..... ;-)
There’s nothing like some good “Tales From The Supermarket” stories to get me going. Gonna have to look for the home blood pressure kit. Or just hit the beers.
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.
He looks like U. of Pittsburgh Coach (and former Miami Dolphins) Dave Wannstedt. If anyone can post a picture of Wannstedt, I think its a dead ringer.
