3. Do all your shopping and speak as if you are performing an Opera. My son and I do this.



Oh my God - too funny!! You will probably never read this, but we must be kindred spirits. My son and I did this same thing, except we'd use "sing-song" voices the whole time.

How I miss those days! We'd also put that down when asked for any "special requests" - like for a food order. "Please ask the delivery driver to only speak in a sing-song voice".

No one ever thought it was funny but us, but WE thought is was hilarious.

He's grown with a son of his own now - I'm off to call him to make sure he keeps up the family shenanigans. Thanks for the reminder.

Your situation is the practical proof of the convergence of Murphy's Law with Bell's Theorem (aka "Schroedinger's cat"). The lines available to you are a quantum wave-form construct, choosing a line has the effect of an observation, which collapses the waveform.

We just happen to "live in the universe where beezer is always in the slowest lane"

The funniest stuff I've heard in a long time. That was a much needed laugh. Thank you. And its too bad your first page was plagued by clowns telling fart jokes. Those are classless people.

My girl and I work at different bars in the city. We shop daily for dinner at around midnight everyday give or take a couple of hours on our way home. Our grocery store by our house is open 24 hours. We shop and all is peaceful because the only people we deal with are the people that stock the shelves. When it's our day off and we go during the day OMG I hear you. People respect nothing. I mean when I have to fight old ladies for a box of cereal; things aren't right.

I'll stick to buying most of my meals at night when no one is there whenever it's possible.

Must admit I hate shopping.

Worse place is IKEA near Leeds, I took a SU to pick some new stuff for his room and it took us both 25 mins to find the exit....
I kept following the signs and one pointed me in a dead end of Bathrooms.
I asked staff to escort me outside and even they couldn't find the exit.
Never will I go there again lol.

I dislike those multi floor ones like ikea, harrods, too - takes for ever to find anything you're there for hours some times getting what you need. If you go there a lot you obviously get used to the store but you have to walk around for ages. I dont mind the grocery stores much as above every aisle theres a big sign above it thats clearly visible.

I buy most of stuff online now, i think thats going to be a slow death of he department store once the average age of citizens gets lower (older people dont use the internet as much, you know like 60+)

Funny how the crybabies are whining about someone ranting inside the rant forum. LMAO! Get over it.

Anyway, it always comes back to being all about stupid people, and how they get in your way day in and day out.

No matter if it's in a grocery store, a restaurant or on the road. You have to wonder how these imbeciles manage to even wipe their own butt in the morning.

OMG SN! You may have just tipped us all off to the
event horizon that Ren and Stimpy encountered :
only in cyberspace!
Left to our own vitriol vortex we could individually
fist ourselves into NONEXISTENCE! The fatal wipe.
I'm gettin' out while the gettin's goo.

I actually suffer from a gypsy curse concerning checkout lines.

Whatever line I'm in, will be the slowest, longest line ever.

Never, ever get behind me in a store. (I'll be the one with the wife who has farts for her ring tone)


Haha, we share the same curse - I was going to write the exact same thing. It's so bad, I can be in the express lane with one person ahead of me, but you bet it will be the person whose card is being declined, or who bought just $2.00 more than is left on the food stamp card, or who will whip out a huge stack of coupons, or who finds (at the register) that his meat or milk is expired and asks the guy at the register to get a new one, or the one with the grapes that don't have a price/barcode on them.

Happens ALL THE TIME.

Debinhams in the UK also is massive with up to 5 floors AND a ground and basement!!!!

Good job they have a catalog for those places, its one thing finding a section with what you wanted but can see it all first before you even get there which, who came up with that was thinking that day!

4 kids and not one of them are leashed!



Seeing leashed kids has got to be one of the funniest things. Good thing we live in the land of the safe!

Why not contribute. My pet peeves about shopping are from repetitive, personal experiences. But...it kinda goes like this. I'm in line to check out after basically running through the store to be there for as short a period of time as possible. And ahead of me is a women buying food, toys and a $500 TV. Great! I'm only one person away from the register.

Yeah...right. So the guy starts ringing up the food and she stops him at the toys. "No...those are separate". HUH??? Apparently, she has decided to either shop for other people or wants to make THREE TRANSACTIONS. She pays for the food with an EBT (welfare, WIC type of card), then pays for the toys with a credit card and finally pays for the $500 TV in cash. During the food purchase, she told the cashier to remove a few items when she "realized" how much they cost because...hey...why look when picking out the food. During the toy transactions, she held another company's flyer telling the cashier about the store's "meet or beat" price offer and getting discounts on some toys...probably a buck or so. I guess actually going to the Kmart next door was too difficult of a task. Then she pays for the TV in $20 bills. End result? 20 f'ing minutes waiting for this person to complete their "check out experience" and me wanting to strangle Shemizle...or whatever her name was.

So I'm pissed. I'm wondering why she has a credit card and is buying a $500 TV with cash when she has an EBT card (that apparently she desperately needs as she has no cash...ummmm) and HOW THE HELL I CAN AVOID THESE PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE! How about a few simple rules. One transaction per person, one payment method per person and a law requiring the reporting of anyone who WE ARE GIVING MONEY TO, to the appropriate agency. Can't feed your toy playing children without my help...but can blow $500 on a TV...AT THE SAME F'ING TIME!!!

Thanks for the chance to also rant.
