Just posted this on Mike1950’s thread but started thinking you guys also have pet peeves that would be interesting to hear about. I have been trying to get my 90 year old mom to use a bank card or credit card in checkout lines for years. Still have not convinced her.

Mike, I truly hope, wish and even pray that you are not one of those people that insists on using a check to pay for your groceries in a long checkout line. Or the type that waits until they hear how much the total is before even pulling out the checkbook. Or the type that forgets they have coupons until after the total is given. Or the type that has to start over because they decided they want some extra cash included in the total. Or…

Convenience store clerks that check you out while talking on their cell phone.

Convenience store that has two registers and one closed with 6 people in line with the second clerk texting on their cell phone while the new clerk struggles with the cash register.

And yes I admit I still write checks at the grocery store but I have everything filled out but the amount before they are finished scanning the items. I’m a lot faster than the people who dig through their pockets or purses looking for the exact change!

Hey Gerald… as a guitar major in grad school one of my jobs, as a result of scholarship/fellowship, was to teach elective lessons and group classes. I asked a kid (I think he was a sophomore) what music he listened and his answer was: “Like, stuff, ya know?”. You would’ve loved to have a conversation with that kid.

Idiots that pull out of a side road in front of me when I’m the only car on the road , and then proceed to drive 10 mph under the speed limit, or turn off a few streets down the road. Makes me wish I was driving a snow plow so I could help them get around the corner just a wee bit faster than they want to : )

The lady in front of you in the checkout. She always stands and waits until she gets a total then proceeds to start digging around in a huge purse full of junk for money or her check book. I have my debit in my hand when they start scanning.

I vote with AlaskaGuy…some people need to unfortunately have a truly bad thing happen to them to reset their gripe clocks.
