When you are out and about shopping, etc., what do people do that really annoys you?

I was raised to say excuse me when you walk in front of someone. I was raised to say thank you if someone does something for you, i.e. hold a door open, etc. Today it seems the majority of people out there are clueless to common courtesy. They cut you off, they don't acknowledge you when you let them into... show more I was raised to say excuse me when you walk in front of someone.

Today it seems the majority of people out there are clueless to common courtesy. They cut you off, they don't acknowledge you when you let them into traffic when no one else is doing it, they let doors shut in your face, the park in handicapped spots when not handicapped at all, they leave shopping carts all over the place and they are perfectly capable of walking them the two rows over to the stall.

I hate people who toss garbage out their car windows or their cigarette butts. You don't have an ashtray in there?

Or how about the ignorant moms who change their kids diapers and toss them in the parking lot? The diapers not the kids. That one really gets me. I saw it one time, she had 4 kids. She took the diaper and just tossed it into the parking place next to her. This is telling her kids what? I waited till she went into the store, went and picked up the shitty diaper and placed it **** side down on her windshield and secured it with her wiper blades. Washed my hands and left her a note. What a complete slob. I won't even say what my neighbor told me she did to someone like that.

In the book sale at the library today. People on either side of the tables looking. This very large man comes down the aisle pushing people aside. No excuse me or pardon me. Just wallowing through. I was ready to blast him when an old lady told him "son, people would move over if you would just say excuse me please". He just came on through. Then I mumbled about some people just being ignorant rude assholes.

I really try not to let it get to me. I try and be tolerant. I know we each have bad days, but something tells me these people are like this every single day. I work with a few.

OK, I've ranted enough - Your Turn.
