I was home on a weekday a couple of weeks ago and happened to have the TV on Dr. Phil's talk show. One of his guests was a woman who is waging a campaign against her personal pet peeve - people who don't use the little plastic dividers on the checkout conveyor belts at grocery stores, Wal-Mart, etc. She goes to the extreme of putting some of her items in with the items of the people in front of her so that they will get home and realize they have things they don't want and have to go back to the store to return them.

Anyway, she was going on and on about how you are supposed to put the divider BEHIND your items - is that true? I've always put it in front of my items.

I thought that was a funny pet peeve, but it apparently irks her to the point of waging a nationwide campaign against it.

i was behind a lady the other day who had $300 worth of stuff on a $150 gift card. it was torture waiting while she put one item back at a time to get low enough.

What if he gave you a string of soft kisses starting right behind your ear and working their way slowly down your neck... then gave you those puppy dog eyes...??

LOL... sorry Southern coming out in me...

buggy aka shopping cart...

When I typed it... I thought I'd better change it... as it would cause some confusion... but just decided to leave it... next time.. I'll use the proper word and not the Southern term.

what irritates me most is my boss continuing to schedule me with Slub all the time...geesh!

my biggest problem is with grocery shopping in general. the whole process is very overwhelming. i can't handle the cowded isles first of all. it is too much. i have walked out of a grocery store twice this year cause there was just too many people for me to deal with. next time i think i need to take a support group with me.
then this is what bugs me the most: the over handling of what you buy. take it from the shelf to the cart, then from the cart to the check out, then they bag it, put it back in the cart, from the cart to the car, from the car to the kitchen, from the bag then to fridge and the cabinets. then you take it later just to eat it. to me, this is just too much to have to deal with all the time. i guess this is why i have only been to the grocery 3 times this year.

Yeah right Slick, you have never had it so good. I was the twitching nervouse mess the other day after opening with you!


I don't mind grocery shopping but my pet peeve is taking the groceries in the house and putting them away. I tend to just leave them on the table till I get sick of looking at them.

I hope you put your perishables away or otherwise you hour would begin to stink. Ewwww But I can totally understand leaving the cans, however, I do not do this. Everything has a place to go and it has to be put away or it drives me nuts.
