Why is it that people drive to the supermarket, park up, get a trolley, and then once inside the building they lose all sense of spatial awareness? Would they abandon their car in the middle of the road? Probably not, but it's OK to leave their trolley in the middle of an aisle while they go off searching for something. Why do they meet up and start their jibber-jabber at the top of an aisle so nobody else can get past. Why do they go to the supermarket to smack their kids? I'm sorry but I know what I want, I know where it is, and I just want in and out as soon as possible with minimal bruising/lacerations. Grrrrrrrr. Anyone got a Taser for sale?  >:(

That all sounds fairly familiar, not forgetting the ones that drift off to the side to look at something while their trolley sticks out right across the aisle behind them  ::)

I find a good hard bash with my trolley gets the message across, especially when it jolts their hand that is still hanging onto it, and the ones left unattended in the middle of the aisle get a hefty shove so that the offending owner has to search for it when they realise it's gone missing  :thumbsup:

This 'angry' thread must be one of the biggest on the forum. We must be a bunch of miserable and unhappy sorts. I wonder what sort of response a 'happy and delighted' thread would get.  ;D

We already have a 'Happy Thread' but as has been discussed in several places (not least reviews of models) we do like having a moan more than we are happy. This accounts for the size of each thread :computerangry:

My broadband (from dear ole BT) is so poor tonight that I am giving up and will try again in the morning. I've reset the hub at least 4 times, every time restarting my laptop and it's pathetic. It's like it's a crap night on the telly and the whole of Leyland is busy tweeting or facebooking (whatever). Grrr >:( :thumbsdown:

Been in our latest Morrisons this afternoon,it was absolutely heaving.I'v never seen so many people pushing full trolleys around.Its a wonder there was anything left on the shelves.

Anyway,when I got to the checkout,I thought I'd use the self service checkout.What a mistake that was.Every item I had barring the tins of roses I had bought made the light on the machine go from green to red,meaning the woman who supervises and checks no one is nicking owt had to keep coming to reset the damn thing.

Then,on the way out,people can't seem to wait a moment for the next segment of the revolving doors to come round,which makes em stop,then start,then stop again and again and again....
