These people should be executed immediately - and would be in a decent society

I'll start off with ... people who stand there in the supermarket hanging on to the open freezer door staring aimlessly at the contents, their mind devoid of any rational thought.

Meanwhile the temperature of the supermarket drops by a couple of degrees and the doors of all the connected freezers cloud up obscuring their contents, which of course means the next sad [email protected]@rd HAS to open the door to look inside.

How hard can it be to look THROUGH the glass, select an item, then open the door, remove the item and CLOSE the door? I think if sea sponges had arms and fingers they could manage it.


Over to JB . . .

and then, at the checkout, wait until the last possible minute to start rummaging around the bottom of some voluminous bag searching for the elusive purse, muttering such imprecations as " I know it's in here somewhere" !!

Don't these persons know that that have to pay, or is it surprise ! surprise ! at the end as they keep everyone else waiting ?

Calm down, love!


(It's not like we're talking about the 43,220 TSA personnel who should be executed well ahead of them! )

Reminds me of a friend of mine.
After a few beers, the conversation started getting a bit dirty and he admitted
To me he liked to make love to his wife over the freezer.
He asked if I thought he was weird. I said no it's your wife etc etc
Why do you ask ?
Well he said. They threw us out of the supermarket ��

I think the cashier thing is a man/woman thing. If you observe any queue it is usually the man who has a note in his hand, or his wallet in quick striking range.

There must be an evolutionary reason (difference between hunters and gatherers) for this as it seems to be hard-wired into both of us.

Interestingly the cashiers (m/f) are aware of this and appear to be ready for the cash to be shoved in their face, before the total is done, or have other things to do while the wallet/purse is located. Probably instinctively!

People in the ( queued up) filling station who get back in the car and then take a full two minutes before they have gone through all their pre take off checks and moved off the pumps.

People having a chat with others in an aisle, trolleys splayed at 45% angles so you can't get past.

...........take a full two minutes before they have gone through all their pre take off checks and moved off the pumps.
Slightly off thread - sorry .... Was once refilling my car as the car behind started up and ran into my car. I approached the female driver and asked what the h*ll she was doing, and was presented with an alcoholic, or drugged, "silent, smiling face" - I then called her a Stupid Bitch. Another motorist told me that if I called her a Stupid Bitch again he'd hit me. I did, and he did.

I then stood in front of the other motorists car to stop him moving, unless he chose to run me over, and disobeying the notice not to use cellphones on the forecourt called the Police, who arrived remarkably quickly.

After a short appraisal the Police moved the drunk, or drugged, driver and what now turned out to be her male friend, off the site to free up the forecout for other motorists, and told me to wait. Shortly afterwards one of the Police came back to me, and after listening to my story cautioned me that they might charge me with use of abusive language !

I asked them to arrest the male driver for assault upon me, and the female driver for being drunk-in-charge. They suggested that I drop the whole thing and leave.

Unfortunately my wife and I were now late for what we considered an important appointment, so we left. I heard no more about it.

The female driver at the very least would qualify for treatment under this thread title. IMHO. As I was never called to give witness in Court, I assumed that no action was taken against either of the other two involved.

On another occasion I was nearly killed on my motor bike by a female driver pulling across an intersection after failing to stop at the Stop sign. I took successful evading action and then followed the vehicle to take the registration number. The driver then slowed, so I pulled alongside and indicated that she should stop, so she then forced me into the middle of the road in the face of oncoming traffic, I left the scene, drove home and reported the incident to the Police. Next day I was in town and observed the same car at the petrol station, but being driven by another female, so I stopped and asked if this was her vehicle, and being told no then asked who was the owner ? No answer. When I got home shortly afterwards I received a call from the Police accusing me of harassing a woman in the town.

Once again no action taken against the perpetrator of two counts of dangerous driving, in my estimation, and the incidents only reinforce my opinion that in New Zealand the victims are always the losers, supported by the laughable sentences akin to nothing more than a slap on the wrist with a wet bus ticket, that are routinely handed out.

Sorry ! end of rant. Apologies for being off thread, the petrol station comment rattled my cage !

When I went to NZ some years ago, I formed the opinion that the lifestyle there was like the UK 30 years previously. It looks like you have now caught us up, or at least the plod have.

To return to the original topic - may I add people who drone on about how much they hate whatever is the latest version of Windows, even though they haven't triues it and only use their devices for email, browsing, a bit of shopping and some music storage (which means that it really doesn't matter what OS they use because they'll all do it more than adequately.

Oh yes, and of course we can't overlook iBling users (who are the sterile pips in the ritting discarded core of the apple marketing concept!).

I think there should be a pecking order here's mine:

1. Politicians

2 Foreign Politicians

3 Political advisors

4 Political Media types

5. People who canvass for politicians

6. Assorted people in supermarkets as above.

7. New Zealanders who are totally incapable of understanding signalling rules whilst driving around a roundabout. ( i.e. 96% of the driving population in my observed opinon - it's not Rocket Science, so what's the problem )

8. People who say "it's not Rocket Science" !!

People who don't indicate on roundabouts, or go the whole way around a 2 lane roundabout in the outside lane.

People who drive at half the speed limit, especially on motorways.

In supermarkets:
  • People who leave their trolley blocking the end of the aisle or other goods while they go to get something from the far end - or another aisle completely
  • People who push their trolley from the side rather than the end (that goes for prams too)
  • Couples who shop "en famille" with the rug rats protesting loudly or running amok
  • People who insist on discussing every potential purchase with their significant other on the end of the phone
  • People at the check out who suddenly produce a bookful of vouchers and slowly find then tear out the ones they need
  • People who are chatting on their mobile at check out and can only pack extremely slowly
  • Partners at checkout who stand there doing nothing to help pack goods in bags

Oh joy, I'm off to Tesco in a minute...

Supermarket bosses who insist on the CUSTOMER packing their own groceries instead of the paid cashier.

Isn't that what everyone else has already said (when you strip out the excess wordage and focus on the core meaning)?

Yes one of my ex's once called me the trolley police. A pet hate. Normally take round the previous aisle and dump it there. Their faces are a picture of "where did I leave my trolley"!

Lasernigel, I am occasionally tempted to move them elsewhere - still haven't been to Tesco yet, today perhaps I might...
