Self-centered, oblivious people of all ages who get in the way. I forgive the older ones more readily.

Nothing. I try not to sweat the small stuff. I also never go anywhere without my trusty player with noise-isolating earbuds. [Image: meditation.gif]

RE: What annoys you most at the Supermarket?
(7) People in general. Getting in my way. Standing in front of the item I need to get to chatting on the phone.
Kids- crying, screaming, running around and terrorizing other people.
Parents who ignore their kids.

I never get in other peoples' way. If I am in their way it's a clear sign that they have not yet decided they don't really need whatever it is that I'm blocking.

Nah, it's just things I can't change, which also do not really affect me. There's more than enough shit that bugs me. Supermarkets just are not among them.

I really don't like huge ones, though. Tend to get disoriented, forget what I came for and wander around like a... well, like something that wanders around, not really sure what it's doing.

Nah, I just leave without buying even what I came for. And then choose another, smaller supermarket. Blush

That. What the fuck you doing texting on your phone in the middle of the goddam motherfucking aisle! I first make sure they see me waiting, give them 10-15 seconds to get the fuck outta my way, then yell "MOVE!" That's usually effective. If not ramming mode then ensues and I move them outta the way. ... I leave the old people alone and just kinda nudge them outta the way slowly.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Good list, Mr. Woof! I still would have chosen the first if the pole allowed all options and said "kart." There's nothing like a wobbly, banging wheel shaking the kart from side to side and making more of a racket than a mom's screaming two year old all the way through the store.
