Yous are both wrong.

Segregating the bags saves time putting it away at home. Eg yous can take your bag of tins and shove them in the tins cupboard. However the correct time-and-motion approach is to segregate the items as you unload them from the trolley onto the till.

I hate people who, when on a train that's filling up, don't sit by the window.

Also women (yes it does seem to be almost exclusively women) that sit in the outside of the 2 seats (the rows that just face one way) in the hope that it will prevent anyone sitting next to them. If you don't want anyone sitting next to you either stand or don't travel by public transport in the first place.

The problem with doing that is that the person on the till invariably stretches over your carefully organised shopping to pick up something in the wrong order

With the added problem that things stay at the front and the belt never moves forward, so the poor sod behind (usually me) can't start unloading THEIR shopping.

Families like the one down the road that buy a house with enough room for 7 or 8 cars on the drive but have more cars than they can park on their drive.

Dear God yes, especially when they park directly opposite my drive on a fairly small road making it difficult to reverse in to my drive, how can 2 people need 6 cars. Its not surprising that both parents are obese and the son is the size of a large camel

All these shopping annoyances: don't you lot have those scanners you can take around and scan and bag as you go? Coupled with scanner only fast track tills and boom! You're out of there in minimum time with bags packed on the go in whatever order you want.

What is this strange new world of which you speak, CT?

Self service tills are the work of the devil. 'Unexpected item in bagging area' it's what I've just purchased you stupid machine it's not like I've just placed a small baboon there is it.
they drive me mad when I mistakenly decide to use them they don't speed things up and do people out of jobs

Gooders 22-03-2015 09:21 AM

People that use words like "hysteria", "tragic" and "pathetic" to describe posts that express an opinion they don't agree with.

Sorry but I do this, I hate being penned in by the window and if I'm first to an empty set of seats then it's my choice where to sit.

Football grounds that have rugby markings on the turf. I mean FFS we can put a man on the moon 45 years ago but we can't manage to rub out some white wash on grass.:grrr:

When the pitch as Wembly was ******* wrecked by American football the week before and the national team, in their stadium had to play on a pitch that looked like they had spray painted a freshly ploughed field. Was raging that day

Especially on a late train home and you get penned in by someone who has consumed a fair amount of alcohol and is snoring on your shoulder :D. Trying to escape can take time and can potentially make you to miss your stop.
