Pet-peeve of the day

You know what grinds my gears? People who do not respect the 1 to 8 items in the check-out isle. The rules clearly state, “1 to 8 items”. I’m all for “bucking the system” and living a little dangerously. I mean, no one likes to be told what to do.

But you know why this rule is in place? So people holding on to their single tub of ice cream don’t have to wait and watch as the ice cream melts in their hands while Janet, with enough groceries to feed her entire family for a month, slowly unloads and subsequently bags her own items, because it’s the express lane and they don’t bag them for you.

Dreams of enjoying ice cream for dinner while binge watching an entire season of Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix for an entire Friday night are being delayed. Listen Janet, there is a giant sign directly above your head. You either can’t read or can’t count. Move it along now. I’m hangry!
