    General Pet Peeves

    There is a thread in another sub-forum about garage sale pet peeves, but I thought that I would start one for pet peeves in general after running into an individual last night.

    I was at the grocery store on my way home from work and the checkout lane that I was in dumped out right in front of the scratch off lottery ticket machine. While I was waiting, I noticed an older lady doing one of the things that greatly irritates me. She was one of these people who buy some scratch offs, then proceed to stand in front of the machine and scratch them. She even went as far as to scratch them off, buy some more, then scratch them as well. Occasionally, she would move out from in front of the ticket machine. When she would do that, she would move in front of the Coinstar machine!! When I left, she was still there, but I was able to look into the Coinstar reject tray and unfortunately it was empty. If I had seen something in there, especially something shiny and silver-like, that old lady would have been body-checked all the way over to the produce counter.

    Hmmm...
    Do you "body-check" old lady's often ?

    And what exactly does that mean ? ? ?
    Is that like "frisking" ? ? ?

    Think more along the lines of a hockey check.

    There's a general store in my small hometown and there's a lady that does the same thing with the lotto deal, every day. And she smokes a generic cigarette while she's scratching. I don't mind the smell of a premium cig but that generic crap reeks.

    Everyone knows you use children to lure the elderly from a fixed position.
    I can't stand being late myself or others being late.If there's not a valid reason I find it to be disrespectful.

    Was in line at a lunch buffet and the couple ahead of me were touching all the dinner rolls, apparently looking for one with just the feel! Maybe it was Typhoid Mary's offspring...

    Another day, another store, same thing. I stopped at a different grocery store on the way home today and had the same occurrence. Some lady standing in front of the lottery ticket machine scratching her tickets. What is it with these people?!?!?!?!

    I'm guessing that you have now learned one of Life's important rules. NEVER eat at a buffet unless you like the germs from all the people that preceded you down the line. And by that I mean germs from ALL parts of their bodies.
