A few annoying things about my trip to the grocery store today at lunch:

1. My grocery cart handle shocked me repeatedly as I pushed it through the store. Has this happened to anyone else or is it just me? I couldn't get it to stop.

2. The lady behind me in the check-out line was using one of those carts with the car attachment for her daughter, who was sitting in it. Unfortunately, this meant that she did not have a clear understanding of just how far her cart protrudes in the front as opposed to normal carts. She banged me about three times (hard) in the legs while I was being checked-out and pushed her cart up so far in the line that I had to lean over it to sign the signature screen for my credit card.

3. Another cart issue...I kept meeting this one lady in what seemed like every aisle who would park her cart in the dead center of the aisle instead of to one side when she was looking for something.

4. The wind was so strong that it blew my paper towel package clear off the bottom rack of my cart on the way to my car.

I am so in agreement with you on #2!! I can't stand when someone gets into my "checkout" space. Especiall when I am waiting for a receipt and the person behind me is already pushing up to the front. I will make a point then to stand there until my items are bagged and I have my receipt!! I get REALLY annoyed!

I also hate it when people take up the entire aisle and will not let you by. Or you know exactly what you need but they are standing there trying to make a choice and they won't let you just get what you need and proceed.

Miss Rachel,

A little lesson in protecting your checkout space, the first Aisle you go to is the sports aisle pick you up a baseball bat a comfortable one the first time that you wack thier basket they will give you all the space you desire. Be sure and miss the kid in the cart.
