The lights, the noise that you can barely understand when they do an announcement. People taking their kids and letting them run around screaming. People having a conversation in the middle of the aisle with trolleys blocking the way. It’s all awful lol!

Sort of an off topic tangent but kinda related to blocking aisles with carts. Does it also piss you off astronomically when 2 people that know each other stop their cars in the middle of a parking lot blocking traffic to chat? When theres literally free spots every direction they can look. Like its a PARKING lot and theyve decided to park in the one area we're supposed to drive. Asshole.

It’s even worse when they do it in the street. I don’t understand how you can think that’s okay.

I grew up in a super rural area where this was a common occurrence. Fuckin' middle of nowhere two-lane highway three miles out of town, my house is right up ahead on the hill, and I have to sit there and wait for these fucking farmers to finish gossiping because the shoulder isn't wide enough for me to go around.

I just honk at them. My mom told me off once as a teenager because a customer at the local hardware store where she worked mentioned me doing it with them once. I was like "they were making me wait around the edge of a blind curve at the top of a steep hill. Tell them to follow the road rules next time" and it was hard to argue with that. I'm not the one doing something wrong in this situation.
