Don Firth... "I sometimes think that people of normal intelligence tend to check their brains at the door of supermarkets"

Nope. Simple fact is (and *I* have complained about such MANY times on threads in Mudcat for years about this crap) it is a pet peeve of GREAT contention for me. These comlpete twits had no brain when they decided to go to the grocery store. It seems few people have any good manners any more. I TOO often ask myself, "Do these idiots drive cars on the roadways too!!?"

Even more burdensome is when they block the entire aisle (one person -one cart!) and then say sorry when they walk in front of my 86 year old almost blind mother at the last second. I sometimes hang back, as she is hard of hearing and say, "No. yer NOT sorry. Yer ignorant and rude. Don't be sorry, just don't treat other people rudely. Have a nice day."

The odd time, they say something like, "Well! Excuse me!" I think you can guess what I reply in such circumstances.
