What annoys you most about Supermarket Shopping?

Trolleys that don't go where you want (always one wheel that doesn't reach the floor properly)
Other people's kids running around
Internet pickers always in the way
Women searching in their purses for bit of change

I'm always fine with it, when I go I tend to go after work, or later in the evening! One thing I hate is when there are loads of retired people on the weekends - you have all week to go shopping!!!! Worst part is trying to negotiate with people who leave their trolleys in the middle of the aisle.

Passionate about this aren't you? tongue.gif

Anyway, I hate busy supermarkets full stop, I avoid them all I can. Hate when people just stop in the middle of an aisle and when they browse items and block off people from getting them as well. Ugh.

1. When you make a special trip for some crispy seaweed thins and they're all out of them.
2. When you forget to take any of your bags for life and you end up having to buy a 62nd one at the checkout.
3. When you see a colleague's elderly mother sat by the window, make a joke about her son abandoning her for a free coffee yet again, then realise she's not who you thought she was when she gets upset.

Best time to go shopping is either when The X-Factor or Britain's Got Talent is being broadcast = nice empty shop. *Bliss*

I really just don't trust those self-service checkouts. I only use them if I'm with someone and they want to use one. There have been several instances where you've just had to be like "Excuse me, I put in x amount and it only gave me back y amount" etc. Stupid.

Could be worse, at least you can still get free carrier bags.

We're charged 5p a bag and it don't even necessarily go to charity!

I hate:
when supermarket workers block both ends of the same aisle when restocking and having a friendly chat whilst you're trapped.
When two people who know each other and have four kids each stop for a chat in front of something.
People who can't decide what they want when they're standing in the way of the item you know you want.
When people stand with their trollies as outstretched as possible in the way of everything for no reason.

Someone deciding to fumble around for their purse, wallet, card, moneo off vouchers etc when the cashier wants the payment. Why can't they have their method of payment ready?

People in the way, but that's a general thing in life / on streets and not just specific to the supermarket.

Trolley steering used to be AWFUL and now my Morrisons have ditched the £1 for a trolley thing all is good (not that I ever need a trolley but still tongue.gif)

Long queues with few of them open and not enough separation bar thingys on the tills are probably the most annoying things for me laugh.gif

When they put the reduced stuff out and the aisle just fills up with rabid posh people who are too tight to buy things they can afford full price.

I could make a very long list, but for now, I shall just mention the people who get to the checkout and seem shocked to discover that they are expected to pay for their shopping.

Oh, and a second one, the checkout operator who says "Enter your PIN number". I KNOW HOW THIS WORKS. I'VE DONE IT BEFORE. (Yes, I know Jason Manford has done a routine on that).
