Look people Rite Aid isn't that big of a store, and see that asile right infront of my register that says batteries on it? And there's a huge sign in the back, part of it is blocked, but I can see PHA and ACY, I wonder what it says.

I don't have a problem if somebody actually has looked first and then asks where it is.

Next is those people who don't understand how to wait their turn. I'll be helping a customer and some person comes in, "hey, excuse me, hey where's your phone cards, hey I'm talking to you." Get in line and wait until I'm done. Plus the phone cards are in a big blue rack in front of my register, right before the batteries.

Oh and if you have a 50 or 100 dollar bill, don't break it on me with a $2 dollar purchace (yes it happens all the time). If its under $20, you pay with a 20 you *******. And I am not a ****ing bank, there is one next door. You can not have $300 in cash back. The max is $50, granted if there have been $50 worth of purchases made with cash.

And you are ****ing retarted if you wait at a register with no light on, and no body behind the counter. People will wait at register 1 while I am at 4 (there are only four ****ing registers so its not like it is hard to find me). They will sit there and stare at me, like come help me, while I have people in my line. I know you want your ****ing photos or ciggrets, you come wait in my damn line because that is where I can rig you up. And when you do finally decided to come over since nobody is there to help you, don't yell at me asking "Is there anybody working over there?" because you know the answer is no.

Last, the thing that pisses me off the most, is those *****y college girls that didn't pick up her birth control before the pharamacy closed. No, they will not let me, a low paid college kid, to break into the pharamacy to get your birth control. You can however, buy some condoms.
I can relate to most of that, I work at a Do-It-Best. For some reason when people walk into a store like this they assume the person working the floor is going to walk around holding your hand showing you where every last damn thing on your list it. People wont even look, they will stand in a line to let me help them, when in reality they could of found it on their own faster if they had just looked. Every asile has a sign above it with the major things on it, do the math for gods sake. If you are looking for a 1/4-20 bolt look in the asile that says "fasteners" not the on that says "Plumbing Tools". I could go on all day about this...
And god forbid you don't carry every little thing that everyone needs, this is a hardware store, not Wal-Mart. We don't carry toys, we carry hardware. And people get pissed when we can't compete with Lowes on their prices, yeah no ****, this is a locally owned and operated hardware store, not a national chain that is run from hundreds of miles away.

I encounter this one more and more every day:

People who take the elevator to go up or down a single floor. They aren't even out of shape, just plain lazy. I bugs me to no end. I swear I'm going to go berserk on one of these people one day.

I work in a grocery store. I get asked where something is when im literally stocking it. If they ask where an asle is i tell them inbetween asle whatever and whatever. It makes me wonder if people want me to do their shopping for themselves since they are too lazy to actually look for it. Ive had a lady aske me where something is before she even got in the door.

So my buddy answers back by locking it in 4-lo and lets his 35X12.50's crawl OVER his hood destroying the whole front. emo kid jumps out in a rage ready to fight until they step down and he sees hes taking on guys who ride 2000lbs of very angry beef "for fun", he changed his mind. before anything can be said 3 drivers from other vehicles we didnt even know told the kid not to try any lying to the police cause they all witnessed it and would testify if need be to him in a rage hitting the jeep. never heard anything from it. some lessons are learned the hard way

This is the best story ever! I would pay to see this happen, and then see them fight redeo guys.

What kills me is that most people have never driven a manual trans berfore. They dont know what they are missing. It should be part of the driving exam.

Oh and the spanish titles on everything. In America we speak English.

threads that go over 4 pages... takes too long to read them all...

L.A. and Bay area wacko drivers!!!
Like doing 87mph on a 4 lane freeway, in the No. 1 lane, barely a car space between U and the vehicle in front of U, and all the other lanes, including yours are chocked full too, and some jerkoff gets about a foot from your butt, flashing their lights for U to pull over so they can pass, and there's no where to go, and U can't go any faster or change lanes, either. But this idiot wants U to move so he can get one more space ahead.

People who dont like when you leaglly stop at a stop sign (3 seconds in ct) and dcied to beep and yell at you. I tend to go the speed limit then and make sure i do everything properly topiss them off. I hate it when people try to merge when there no room or weaving in and out of traffic.

Pedestrians.

You won't understand this till you drive in downtown Montreal.

The funny thing about this signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything, it's too late for you to stop reading it.

Guys riding 1000cc sportsbikes with 2" chicken strips who have no idea how to take a corner.

If you're taking a 30mph posted corner by wobbling around it at 20mph, you have no business being anywhere near that bike.

Due to lack of interest, tomorrow has been canceled

I HATE having to “press ONE for English”

When people ride my *** when I pull up to a traffic light. With my RAM being a standard and on hills, you know its going to roll back slightly. I’m temped to let it roll back a little to far to justify a new bumper.

Vegetarians.

When people drive with their blinkers on.

When people don’t pull all the way up to the line at a traffic light.

Eco-Nazies and their POS hybrid cars.

Smoking.

Ricers.

Rap / hip-hop music.

People on foodstamps / WIC who are driving brand new cars and talking on a $400 cell phone.

And don’t even get me started from when I was working retail. My God there are stupid customers there.

would be your fault as you were going the wrong direction,




when people dont tip your for free food that you still had to bring, at my work we give FREE hot dogs to kids, and had a guy come in today and got the $3.99 lunch special, 2 hot dogs (2 kids) and waters, his bill was $4.25, he gave me a dollar not to mention those kids left a major mess and also got their free ice cream
