People Peeves

I'm a pretty easy going gal most of the time, but some things try my patience....

If you are able bodied and I stop to let you pass in front of my car, I expect to see a little hustle in your giddy-up.  No slow-as-molasses-strolling.  Especially if your pants are hanging off your ass!  I shouldn't have to rev my engine or accidentally hit the horn to get you moving.

Grocery shopping is generally a chore.  So, let's all do our part to keep things moving, shall we?  Transfer the rules of the road to the aisle and keep your cart to the right.  The fact that choosing between Thousand Island and Ranch is equivalent to brain surgery for some folks should not impede progresss for the rest of us.

While it's always nice to get a clerk with a little personality, I prefer not to get commentary on my selections.  Back in November, I bought six bottles of my favorite Cabernet Sauvignon.  (It was on sale, plus I got an additional percentage off for buying half a dozen.  I don't need a meeting.)

Young Clerk:  Wow!  Are you having a bunch of people over for Thanksgiving?
Me:    Nope.
She was pretty quiet after that.

If you are in a checkout line with a shitload of items and there's someone behind you with a couple of items, offer to let them go ahead.  It's just the right thing to do.  That karma will come back around.  No doubt.  The same goes for when there is a line of traffic trying to merge.  Let a car in -- ONE car -- not the whole lot of them.  Again, that will come back to you when you need it.

Beware!  Thoughtless, lazy ass nearby.
No matter where you shop, if you take a buggy outside, put it back after you use it.  Leaving a buggy outside -- not in the return bin -- is RUDE.  Your mama taught you better.  You know she did.  No one should have to clean up after you.  And if that loose buggy hits somebody's car?  You deserve to get your ass kicked.  End of story.

Again, just like your mama taught you:  Act like SOMEBODY!  ;)
