Supermarket Blues

Supermarkets: can't live with 'em can't live without 'em. So to speak.

Many things/happenings annoy me in the supermarkets. One of which is the 'across the isle trolley person'. They stand staring at a shelf and instead of having their trolley nice and neat and next to them they have the fucking thing held in one hand at arms length splayed across the isle and totally blocking the isle in the process!

Morons!

And then there's the people who meet someone they know and they stand chatting to said person two abreast again blocking the bloody isle!

And then there's the person who gets to the till and is about to pay and says 'oh I've forgot something' and wanders off!!

Forgotten their fucking brain is what!

I try to avoid supermarkets and once successfully boycotted them for a whole year, but as I said: can't live with 'em can't live without 'em.

Funnily enough i was in morrisons today, the first time in years, i couldn't believe how busy it was, my mother says it's been like that every day lately!

But your are bang on the money regarding the 'isle hogging', you have to physically push these fuckers to one side, and then you get glared at...

I think i'll do my shopping over the internet and get it delivered from now on!

PS. Whilst in the town centre shops, i was pleasantly surprised by the politeness of the staff, i wasn't greeted by the usual 'service with a snarl' attitude!

Maybe this credit crunch and job insecurity is making them be more helpful!

Britain Awake: funny what you say about Morrisons being busy, I was there today (why I wrote this post) and it was bloody heaving with people!

Oh, yes, and there are those who suffer from terminal 'trolley drift' - usually it runs over your foot - and those who bring small children with them. Nuff said about that one.
I was once in Sainsbury's regarding a watermelon when I became aware of something painfully ramming into my shin. I looked down to espy a child who was essentially plugged nostril and blocked neurons industriously battering me with a toy pram. 'Madam,' quoth I haughtily to his mother: 'would you get your son to Stop Doing That?'
'Oh, he's only expressing himself,' said she helpfully.
'Madam,' bellowed I at the top of my lungs: 'you should have been spayed!'
Dead silence in the fruit aisle.

If only the BNaziP could get into power, then people could be shot for straifing with their trolley in the supermarket, and children who get in a facist's way could be put in a concentration camp, oh I forgot their is no such thing

Not being a right fundamentalist doesn't mean your a left winger, just means you have commonsense.

Oh and I wonder why unions, universities, institutions based on knowledge and community are against the BNP... because they see history and the result of right wing ideals!

And the reason these people you mention are for left wing ideals is?
Do they not look at history as you say and see China, Russia etc, or even the Marxist left wing experiment we have going in this country at the moment doesn't seem to be working too well does it?

I see you attract your share of nutters (anon @ 13:40) too.

If "Anonymous" (how courageous!) had any common sense (n., vs. commonsense, adj.), this rant could have employed facts and substance, instead of glib and hyperbolic stereotypes borne of ignorance.

Wake up, Lefties of Great Britain. The BNP gets traction because the "respectable" mainstream parties and institutions are practicing willful blindness.
