Annoying Things That People Do at The Store

Sure we're social creatures, but sometimes going out means you have to put up with a lot of rude, inconsiderate, and annoying behavior from others. Where exactly do some of these people come from?
• Throwing temper tantrums at the checkout about things that the clerk can do nothing about.
• Budging in line. That's what friends are for.

• People standing too close to you when in line behind you. Haven't they heard that Police song? Don't stand so close to me. Please.

• People not saying “thank you” when holding a door open for them

• On escalators, people not making room for others to pass them

• On escalators, people standing at the top and just looking around without moving. What are they waiting for? A smack on the head?

• People who try to push by you without saying "excuse me" or politely asking you to move, and instead bumping you out of the way

• Not cluing in on queuing for cash register line-ups

Yes, I completely agree with you - some people just don't give a damn. I just put them in their place and what bugs me is when they look at you as if they didn't do anything wrong.

There are really people who doesn't have any manner at all. So sorry but I just do hate people who seems like they are the only one who has the money as if they own the store hehehe. If they are in a hurry why not tell the store manager to close up the store because here they are shopping hehehehe.

I say thank you all the time no matter what. but sometimes I am too shy to say thank you or maybe I forgot to say something nice hahaha... But I will never ever stop giving a person a sweet smile hehehe

I'm not really one to complain openly, but I do agree with what you're saying. Glad to see a reference to the Police song, and now I'll have that in my head the rest of the day. Thanks. Hehehe.

One thing that gets me more than anything is those people that don't have the courtesy to return shopping carts to its retrieval. I really find it amazing how many times I see shopping carts sitting in car parking spaces to where either you have to get out of the car to move it or find somewhere else to park.

Sometimes it isn't so much bad manners as it is just plain laziness.

Nice post my friend!
