I'm doing a thing and need your input...what annoys you the most about other shoppers in a supermarket? What do you find rude/annoying?
Camden, London WC1B 3DE
Annoying shoppers (not shappers) Those who get their mony/card out late AND....
. People passing each other in an aisle and stopping with trolleys next to each other for a chat. Grrargh!
People who never say sorry for bashing into you. People kissing in aisles, usually blocking the section i want to be at.
Folk with no idea *at all* what they want to buy. They waft about listlessly, asking of each product "do I need this"? Gnh.
my wife reads the back of every product which is annoying and takes forever. Shes not even allergic to anything
ppl who stand really close to u in q then push thr basket into u. Standing in my personal space won't make the q go faster!
when they park the trolley in front of the item you want then start reading all the labels grrr
shoppers who queue at a till then walk off to do more shopping (leaving their shopping on the conveyor belt)
when they push past you without saying excuse me. If they said excuse me I'd move - unfortunately I do say this to them
Brecon, Wales, The World
choosing some veg,eejit barges in front of you,as if you don't exist,just so that they can get a f***ing large-sized carrot

Standing gormlessly at the checkout hunting in their bag for their purse/wallet despite having had ages to get it ready.
Deeping St James, Lincolnshire
that awkward moment when you stop and talk to someone for 5 minutes, then see them down every aisle and have to say hello!
Actually, Larry David did a scene on this idea in his Curb' - difficult to describe in the space of one tweet.
the fact they always seem to stand right where you want to walk. This isn't just shops though.
They walk far too slowly. Dawdling along looking aimlessly on shelves for what they might need. Some of us have lists!
People standing around having a chinwag whilst blocking most of the aisle
the fact that not even the staff these days can say please or thank you when you let them past in the aisle or at the end!
I have no idea, LONG STORY.
when people leave their trolley in the middle of the aisle or put their trolley by a section which everyone will go to ...
Trolley etiquette - or more accurately, the lack of it. Have been mown down by numerous grannies.
People standing with trollies across the aisle and having such an in depth chat they ignore the fact you want to pass!
everything and everybody, sometimes baguette smacking you on the arse
Just realised that I should stick to food shopping on-line, I am obviously too grumpy to go to the supermarkets any more!
Oh.. and people who stop for a chat with friends and block aisles wih their trollies...
unruly children. the fat bastards that gorge themselves on free samples, builders vans in disabled spaces.
hogging shelf space with their trollies so you can't get in to what you want & they're oblivious of obstruction

people in a queue who feel the need to invade your space as of it's going to get them served any quicker! aAArghhhhh

not really other shoppers,more way supermarkets fill aisles with huge displays of price cut items so can't navigate trolley
people moving ur trolley...!
no manners trying to shove past u!
walking in two's with a trolley through an aisle. Let's all just stand about and wait for you to allow us space to move.

The disgusting way that some customers treat the (generally helpful) staff. No, I don't work for a supermkt and never have.
