In particular - women and supermarkets. What is that all about?

 

You go in to get a microwave meal and some cider - 2 minute job, right?

Wrong! Takes you 20 minutes to get through the checkouts because of all of the women in front.

 

3 women, all with full trollies and not one of the miserable cows let you through even though they can see you only have a couple of things. And then when they go to pay, they're messing around rumagging for their purses, counting out the change to the exact penny, gabbing about the weather, telling each other how good their hair looks, drives me absolutely nuts.

 

Then the search for the loyalty cards, mustn't forget the club card points as they'll get 10p off a packet of rice with their next lot of vouchers. Then they still have to put the money away in their purse and then put the purse in their handbag and that's before they even pack the shopping, and you can almost guarantee that at least 1 in 3 of them has forgotten to get sugar or nappies so everyone has to wait while they waddle their fat ass back down the aisle to look for a pack of 8-12kg Pampers and they have the nerve to leave their snot-nosed little sod of a baby in the trolley screaming into your face because the ugly little thing thinks his mother has abandoned him!

 

I'd use the self-scan checkouts but those poxy things are more annoying than a long queue with a real person at the other end beepin' your cider.

 

 

Will somebody please introduce male-only checkouts?

I think you need a reality check.

 

As obviously you have no children and obviously have no patience, might I suggest rather than the entire supermarket chain have to cater for just you, why not shop when no one else is around....like Tescos 24 hour and shop at 3am.

 

When, you grow up have children and have more on your mind than cider and a 2 minute meal, joining the real world then you may smile at the screaming child or offer to get the pampus nappies you complain of to assist.

 

Learn tolerance and patience, till then you should be banned from shopping! Sheez what an angry message.

 

MEN!!! Totally unreasonable and if you don't like shopping - use the online option !

Yeah, what's it all about?. I'm not on the exact same page Barra, but why do people find it neccessary to talk about bull, in a large queue, when it's clear (Foot tapping, looks of amazement, and heavy breathing) that we don't need to be put through this, any longer than need be. Get a bloody move on, people to see and all that.

 

I know there's the kids etc etc.... but please have your funds ready, it aint rocket science women! Fella's always have the cash to hand ( and not as likely to go digging for a clubcard either:o

 

Don't get me started on the peeps that insist on dawdling (sp?) either.... they are the real crims!

In defence of women...

 

Fellas have the cash....because women don't have it and as we are taken so few places for enjoyment once we have chains around our ankles and strapped with Children, the supermarket becomes a place where we meet and chat !

 

The book men are from mars and women are from venus comes to mind.....you invaded our plant of harmony....but we now can't live without you...so become accustomed to our ways or return to Mars and leave venusians to the joy of shopping dawdling and conversation. .....

Evidence

 

Why are these guys so grumpy?

 

 

Maybe they just need a hug. Or maybe they're suffering from a condition we all recognize that finally has a name: irritable male syndrome. It's the subject and title of a new book by psychotherapist Jed Diamond. Diamond made a name for himself with the 1997 book Male Menopause, in which he argued that "andropause," or the decline in testosterone that accompanies aging, can really bring a guy down. In The Irritable Male Syndrome: Managing the Four Key Causes of Depression and Aggression (Rodale), scheduled for bookstores in October, Diamond broadens his scope of hormonal changes that can make men, old or not, grumpy. And hormones are just one element in a mix of internal and external forces that can turn a happy, healthy stud into a sour, sick spud.

Well grumpy ..... meet the first woman to ALWAYS allow a man with a few items to go through the checkout in front of her ..... always has her card to hand to pay, loads the goods at one end of the belt while OH packs at the other and ALWAYS moves away from the till to repack her handbag, despite having to use crutches to walk.

 

 

So please don't generalise ............ we ARE NOT all the same. :(

 

 

And I've been obstructed, shoved, scowled out and generally annoyed by the behaviour of SOME men at checkouts who always ask for a packer, spend the next 10 minutes attempting to chat up the checkout operator (if she's young) and then realise their card is buried deep in their wallet in the very tight back pocket of their trousers and it almost requires a surgical operation combined with a contortionist act to extract it.

 

C'mon guys, if you really can't wait go to another till, go to customer services or the smokes kiosk, they'll take your little handful. :)

Well I must be the only women that agrees with this post.:eek:

 

I hate waiting for women to go thought the tills and the snotty nosed brats that are usually with them ( and No I dont mean the men !). Why do they always think because you are a women you should coo coo at their kids...........no just get the trolly out of the way and stop the kid screaming:mad: I know what I want........I have the money and my loyalty card ........and I want to go home to a mental yorkshire terrier ok !:mad:

..........and a good liar as well!!!

 

 

I have never felt the need to be a liar .... my manners are better than that.

 

 

NOR do I insult anyone or make personal remarks or obervations about them .... especially when I don't know them personally and have no knowledge whatsoever of them or their behaviour.

 

Perhaps a little less of the personal remarks about someone you do not know wouldn't go amiss.

No generalising, that's perfic:) Could you have a word with womankind for us, cheers!

 

Maybe it's not a Man/Woman thing, just the idiots you get in the aisles/checkouts.

Hye, I've been harrassed by women in checkouts too, and I've also struggled through with 2 tired kids and an absent husband. I just think that generalising is a bit off, given that we all have off days.

 

Perhaps helping out will get her through and out of your way a bit quicker and it'll certainly makes things easier all round.

 

And Votex, if you were only jesting .... try putting smiles somewhere please instead of exclamation marks, then we'd know you were joking. Unfortunately, just because it's the Bear Garden doesn't mean that everything is said is jest. :)
