Something That Bugs Me

Going to Subway, being one of only two people in line, and the guy in front of me says, "I've got an order for nine sandwiches". I'll swear this happens to me every time.

Or the person in front of you at the post office has twenty separate boxes needing labels, weighing, and postage!!

Ah, crap.......Anon @8:53, I've been behind that very SAME person at the P.O.--and I think they were on their cellphone at the same time too.

Has anyone notice the sign at the counter at the subway in decatur asking you to not use your cell phone while in line?

OK, here's my pet peeve....parents who take their young kids to nice restaurants and don't monitor their behavior. I don't appreciate spending good money at a fine restaurant and having someone's kids running wild around my table banging into chairs, etc. My spouse and I went to a really great Greek restaurant in Philadelphia a number of years ago. A prominently displayed sign on the front door read as follows "If you can't control your children we don't want your business." Bravo!

Yes! anon at 10:37pm. Reason for the sign....

I was behind the woman at Subway that placed her order and was on her cell phone trying to get everyone's order from her office also...while in line!! The Asst. Manager was pissed about it, told her to get all orders prior to getting in line then made her go back to the end of the line.

Fluff, a mother of three, I COMPLETELY agree with you. I can't stand it when brats run around, ruining the ambience for others either. My kids know that if can't behave with proper restaurant decorum--like at the dinner table at home--then you lose the privilege of going. And, yes, I am the Mom who's pounding her kid in the bathroom if they dare to defy me in public. Kids without proper direction are the ones that grow up into those incredibly rude, one-dimensional idiots who think social graces are the mythology of our grandparents.

Our P.O. had to post a sign, "We will not assist you until you have ended your cell phone call." Pathetic.

Barry,
You may have to start making your on sandwich! What has the world come too? I think we all have bigger problems than this...They say live in the moment---so I suggest slow down and maybe take something to read next time your in line someplace. You can't be in such a big rush to get back to your blog.....I mean job???

I'm just miffed at Subway that they toasted my bread without me asking the other day........you'd have thought I could pay that much attention, but I was talking on my cell phone - doh!

...that should do it for you!
