Peeves - Shit that annoys you.

Post by ed »

When a waiter or other minion does something for you or brings your food and you say "thank you" and they respond with

"No Problem"

In other words, had it been a problem, you wouldn't have done it? Or that I don't rate service if it is a problem?
The correct response is "You are welcome"

But applying the same logic, what if you were unwelcome?

Visiting Paris in your homeland, ed, going to a restaurant and hearing English speaking tourists ordering Dinner in English while utilizing a comic French accent as if their making a REAL effort to blend in and then expecting the waiter not to piss in their soup.

"A Berm?"

Or tourists speaking more LOUDLY in english as if that helps.

Crappy silverware in decent restaurants. We go to a decent mid-range place and the silverware looks like it is stamped out of thin metal. Very light and horrible.

Americans citing metric with a straight face and unironically.

Or, tourists going abroad and getting the vapors when the front desks of hotels do not speak English, as if the natives of those very countries can come to any 2 star hotel in UK or the USA and expect the staff to speak Mandarin.

Moving your trolley out of the way of someone approaching you in the supermarket to be polite so as not to impede them, with them looking LOOKING directly at you and watching in disbelief as they then stop their trolley in the EXACT SAME SPOT you just moved your trolley from and wander off, leaving you boxed in, unable move for eternity next to a precariously balanced display of Cheerios.

Ooh, ooh, also those dumb ignorant turds that stand there chatting in the middle of the shopping aisles with their trolleys at right angles so that no-one can get past.

Usually obese, corn beef legged women that look like ed. I get superior revenge by taking items out of their trolley while they are busy gabbing*. Still pisses me off though.

(Yes, I do put the items back in the correct place, I'm not an asshole.)

Stupid fucking women that get to the front of large slow moving queues in shops, get all their items rung through whilst discussing/arguing about every item they think might be on some sort of offer and then, ONLY THEN, decide to rummage through their handbag to find their purse/card to make payment. Then, 9/10s of the way through the payment transaction and discussing her cousin Ada's gout, say the Ultimate words of ASSHAT that makes you want to bury a Lochaber axe in the top of their skulls - "OOh, I think I've got a coupon!" - And proceed to scrabble through 6,296 small slips of paper in her purse in order to get 10% off tampons.

Wanker.

You're having a hard time with food stores I see.

And how long has this been going on?

How do those places make you feel?

Fucktards with dogs that let their dogs take a shit in children's play areas.

I don't give a flying fuck if you pick the squishy warmth up with a glove/bag thing. There are still numerous shit particles where it landed. Hang about in the designated shit area until it drops the Eartha instead of trying to blind kids.

Eh, I've noticed the same thing, but no coupons or prattle needed, they just somehow switch off till their stuff has accumulated in front of them. :?

As for elderly ladies clogging up the aisles, I've come to the conclusion that supermarkets are a combination of social club and (extended) living room. And it's you, yes you, Hotarubi, who are an interloper. You should be ashamed of your bad manners!

Stupid women that stand in front of the section where you want to go staring at packets of butter they've picked up for 50 seconds.

Then go to put it back.

Stop.

Stare again for another 30 seconds at the same packet.

Go to put it back.

Stop.

Seem to be racked with indecision.

Pick up another butter.

Compare both for 45 seconds.

More indecision for 30 seconds

Chooses margarine.
