Other Shoppers- I don't care where you go, others shoppers suck. They are in the way. They stop in the middle of the isles to browse instead of scooting over so people can get around them. Their children hide in the clothes racks and scare the shit out of you. The dressing rooms are always full. And if you're anything like me, you wanna get what you need and get the hell out. Other shoppers slow you down.
Check Out Lines- Why, oh why, do stores have 50 registers but only open 5 of them? Especially during the holidays?!? And the people that go through the express lanes that have way more than 25 items. That is absolutely infuriating. Even the clothing stores usually only have 2 registers running and that really blows when you are just trying to buy the $10.00 scarf you are hoping will suffice as a gift for your aunt.
Poor Customer Service- Because I could go on for days about this, just please refer to this post.
Noisy Shopping Carts- I am one of those people who absolutely cannot pick out a shopping cart without some kind a defect. Sure, the ones that pull to the side are a nuisance. Or the ones that seem to have their brakes on. Or the wobbly ones that make you look drunk while you are pushing them. But the worst ones are the squeaky carts that everyone turns to look at when you come down the isle.
Out of Stock- Ok, so you've got your entire list done and that one thing that you really really really want is completely out of freakin' stock! I tried for three months to buy a black comforter at Wal Mart. They kept saying they were out of stock. I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and a couple of other places and NO ONE had a black comforter. Seriously? It's not like I was asking for a comforter with turtles that had wings plastered on it and a nice rainbow back drop. I just wanted black. I ended up ordering the damn thing online. Also, I can never ever find the shoes that I want in my size. I normally settle for shoes that I really don't even like. My size must be popular or I just have shitty luck.
