Pet Peeves

#1 Postby Baby Hercules » Tue Jun 26, 2012 12:58 pm

I recently had the opportunity to offer feedback in a survey conducted by a large supermarket chain. Here's what I wrote:

"It's a shame that you do not possess the authority to either discipline or evacuate annoying, screaming children and the parents who ignore them. It would be a real treat to watch an empowered employee with a dart gun packed with Ritalin making the rounds of the store and dropping shrieking little hellions with dispatch. I do believe spontaneous applause would erupt."

It's a pet peeve of mine. What's one of yours?

Had a lady come into Trader Joe's the other day. She had like 2 items and used food stamp card to pay for them it was like $2 and she had like 2.15 left on her card. Not only did she hide an item behind the register, but after she was rang up she made a BIG scene about how the clerk forgot to ring up that item and how she demanded it to be comped for her. AND a manager came and comped her. Stupid bitch, she is making the clerks life miserable and scamming the place, the clerk is working that job so he doesn't have to use food stamps. Bottom of the food chain as far as ethics go for that lady.

Just my grocery store pet peeve of the week.

Not really a pet peeve, more of a massive peeve: smokers. Especially those who position themselves ten feet away from the entrance to my grocery store, upwind, and leer at me while they exhale in my direction particulates foul enough to discolor paint.

Waiting helplessly at a stoplight while your air conditioner sucks in the fetid, sickly-sweet smell of crackling flesh and charred meat from the McDonald's on the corner.

The saddest thing I've ever seen!! I HATE kids these days that have no respect or sense of well-being. Us as parents need to take accountability and make sure our kids are growing up correctly! Thankfully, someone started a donation page for this lady and she has over $600,000 donated!

Hey Baby Herc... I don't have AC in my car so I have to drive around with my windows down...... so I feel you on the putrid smells coming from McDs and other places. But my biggest pet peeve is when someone I live with uses my cookware and utensils to cook their icky meaty foods...... I need all new stuff now
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

Adding to this: I HATE when there is someone is parked & smoking next to my car because when I open the doors thier F'ing smoke get trapped inside my car. :twisted:
