Honestly, does anyone else care about other people?
I just came back from an infuriating 10minute shopping trip to my local food shop (which shall remain nameless). Almost every isle had a person in it, with their trolley, blocking up the whole isle whilst they stood there staring at the shelf with eyes glazed over. I literally had to say 'excuse me' in every isle after standing still patiently waiting for them to move on their own accord. Doesnt anyone notice other people anymore?
Then at the cash register, a lady shopping with her 2 young kids.....the kids are playing with the plastic bags that are set on the counter for shoppers to bag their own groceries (yes that annoys me but for some reason this place doesnt bag your shopping). So there are bags EVERYWHERE and the mum is just standing there while the lady scans....her items are piling up at the end of the counter. She then pays and then stands there slowly bagging. Ok...I'll be patient....I wait and the cashier helps her bag the items. Then she stands there telling her kids to sit down or they arent moving......the kids are having a rebelious day and the mum says "fine, we'll wait"..meanwhile blocking up the cash register. Eventually she moves on and leaves the plastic bags strewn everywhere....so the cashier has to spend a minute putting them all back where they belong before she can scan my stuff.
THEN, leaving the store, a lady who runs the bakery near the exit is closing up...she is dragging a chair across the walkway..nt a heavy chair, jsut a normal small chair. She is on the phone too and is laughing away, taking her sweet a$$ time....obviously oblivious to the fact that she is BLOCKING UP THE FRIGGING EXIT!!!!
Get in the car, start driving home and get to a T section. About to go and then notice 2 kids (about 10ish) on scooters crossing infront of me in the lane I want to go in. So I pull out at a snails pace waiting for these kids to move, and they dont. They scoot along in their own world, taking up a cars lane on a busy road at a busy time. I call out my window "get off the road" and am promply told to "F**k off C**t" by them. Lovely.
So yes, I am in a rage about this whole trip to the shops but it just reminds me that people seem to not care anymore. If I am out and about I try to not get in peoples way. I move if I see I might be blocking someone. I clean up after my child if he causes a mess, especially one that inconveiniences others.
Is common courtesy completely dead? Bring on the zombie apocalypse already.
