Definite road rage. Some people are too stupid to have the right to push a shopping cart.

Whole families stopping to talk in the middle of the aisle.

Don't mind the chat (I tend to be assertive re. pushing through if they don't respond to "excuse me") but do you have some customers that go to supermarkets in their pyjamas in US? We do here in UK! (They may sling a coat over themselves....pyjama bottoms clearly in view).

MrsLMB, I get that way in the grocery stores!


creative, I see that all the time. People sure don't care how they look anywhere anymore, right? For myself, I have "at home" clothes and "being seen in public" clothes. Those two streams NEVER cross!

I was on the handicap shopping cart. A women had her cart in the middle of the aisle. I couldn't get by. I politely asked her to move it. She gave me a dirty look and walked off leaving her cart right there. Okaaay! I backed up and gave her cart a shove with my motorized cart that sent it down to the other end of the aisle and almost into the checkout line. When she came back, she was looking for her cart. I just smiled and continued shopping!

BTW, I have even been known to put on makeup for my seven a.m. shopping trip.

Buck used to call those people "professional aisle blockers." He surmised that they were paid by management to stall customers so they would make impulse purchases.

My philosophy is quite different. I always make sure I'm made up and dressed to go out/meet folks. Just the way I am. In fact, at about 4 every afternoon I go to the bathroom and freshen up my hair and makeup and brush my teeth. Have always done that.

Funny story, though, about going to Wal-Mart one time back when Buck and I lived in Washington, DC. You want funny looks....

One evening we'd attended a black tie diplomatic event and were out quite late. On our way home we realized we needed something for breakfast in the morning. Wal-Mart. They were the only place open with full merchandise open at that late hour. We stopped.

We were fully decked out. Buck in a tux, shiny shoes, etc. and I was in a long evening gown, hair all done up, makeup extra nice, evening clutch bag, evening shoes, and sparkly jewelry. We were quite the pair but...at Wal-Mart at 2 a.m.? Yep.

Needless to say we certainly garnered some long stares, but we received top notch service.

Cute story Kayelle! Reminds me of when Himself and I went camping along the Shenandoah National Park in 1980. Wanted to go to a restored historic restaurant that served a foods prepared from old recipes. As in slave recipes from the 1700's. Here we are stepping out of our 9x9 tent, Himself in a suit and me in a long dress. The looks! Did the same thing a few years earlier when we camped in Sturbridge MA (MA actually was a vacation destination a couple of times for us when we lived in OH...it's a nice place to visit...) and got all duded up for a trip to Salem Cross Inn. We've been there once since we moved to MA. It's a lot more casual (ie: jeans and polo shirts) and they were playing...jazz! In a colonial structure? The hostess told us later that the "tour bus people" requested it.

I personally don't dress to go out UNTIL I'm going out. Otherwise you can put money on the fact that I'll spot my shirt and have to change. Don't bother with make-up or contact lenses at home either to give my skin and eyes a rest.
