Default Grocery store rant

[Disclaimer: This is a rant. A ranting rant.]

Why? WHY? Why do [some] people not know how to push their cart down the grocery store aisle? I just got back from the store and CRIPE, I think everyone was there had been drinking (yes, I was a wee bit jealous).

People who push the cart down the wrong side of the aisle, stopping in the middle, leaving the cart blocking the aisle, etc etc, make me NUTS (more so than usual). Seriously?! MOVE IT! Some of us have places to be and it sure isn't the grocery store, or the check out line with the slowest cashier (another thread entirely).

I'd hate to see how these people drive their cars. Have to run into the store for something? Just park in the middle of the street and run in. Leave the car right there, blocking the road. These are probably the same people who 'rubberneck' on the highway and completely screw up traffic for someone who's simply stopped on the side of the road to pee in the bushes.

UGH!

Ok, I feel better now. Time for rum.

Pffffffffttt! That's not even close to a whine.

To further build on the analogy:

Are the folks who push a full cart into the Express Checkout line, the same ones who use carpool lanes while driving alone?

I sense a "Conspiracy of the Rude" here...

What about when 2 of these people meet in an aisle and start talking, while blocking anyway around them entirely. And then they give you some dirty look when they see you standing there, looking rather annoyed, after they have ignored your polite 'excuse me'.

I think I will start bringing a cattle prod to the grocery store from now on. The sense of satisfaction I would gain from jolting people would be heavenly. People would then fear and just move out of the way when I go places.

Hmm, I think I might have stumbled upon a great idea. If any of you hear a news story about this, you will have a face to put to the name at least
