AIBU to think its just wrong to push past/run ahead of someone with your trolley to get into the lift before them when they have been waiting for 5 mins more than you?

AIBU to think if there's no room in the lift you shouldn't try and force yourself in making the already confined space even more hot sweaty and uncomfortable.

and finally

AIBU to think you don't unpack someones shopping from their trolley back on to the shelves when they have their back turned and try and dump your six fucking loaves of bread in, then when they turn around say
"well you haven't got much have you" shock

Ynbu sounds like you had a interesting trip. One reason shopping at asda always leaves me rocking in corner.angry

YesIamYourSisterInLaw Thu 17-Jan-13 17:48:24

shock < that is all

WhatchuTalkinBoutPhyllis Thu 17-Jan-13 17:53:23

that was not all but I'm too embarrassed not going to say what I said.

Some people are just rude wherever it is. I remember when DS was a baby, I drove to the supermarket and miraculously got the P&T space nearest the shop. Got a trolley to put his car seat in, went round the car to get his car seat out, and when I got back round the car with him in the car seat, I saw someone walking off with the trolley, cos she'd assumed I must be putting him into, not out of, the car hmm.

She hadn't even asked if I had finished with the trolley. And we were right next to the trolley park, she couldn't be bothered to move a couple of steps to the side to gat a different trolley.

YABU to shop at ASDA.

I tried it once. OMFG never again!!

<rocks back and forth muttering and trembling at the mere memory of it..>

GregBishopsBottomBitch Thu 17-Jan-13 18:05:55

Now thats just not supermarket Etiquette and just rude.

I'd tell em to get their own damn trolley.

MadamFolly Thu 17-Jan-13 18:13:37

So they were putting your stuff back and putting their stuff in your trolley?

Why???? confused

WhatchuTalkinBoutPhyllis Thu 17-Jan-13 18:18:33

Because there were no more trolley's left. Thanks to crazy panic shoppers

GregBishopsBottomBitch Thu 17-Jan-13 18:20:05

Ok, then ya tell them, tough titty.

BanghamTheDirtyScone Thu 17-Jan-13 18:20:34

what did you say?!

TidyDancer Thu 17-Jan-13 18:23:21

We don't have an Asda anywhere near us, so I've never experienced the legendary antics that take place there, but it sounds ideal to let out some rage so I may drive further afield now!

How utterly bizarre some people are.

CheCazzo Thu 17-Jan-13 18:27:04

Consider yourself lucky not to have an Asda near you. Sadly it is the only large supermarket near us. I loathe it and detest it with a passion.

Can I be a lone voice and say it is better to choose your area to shop than the supermarket itself??

I have seen some real classy behaviour today at M&S - the snow loons come out in droves ...

LadyBeagleEyes Thu 17-Jan-13 18:38:22

I can't believe the threads on here about the panic shopping loons grin
I live in the North of Scotland, we've had no significant snow this year, but for FFS people chill.
Oh and my nearest supermarket is 50 miles away, I have my milk and bread on order at the village shop because two years ago some bastard tourists bought out all the milk just before Christmas for their holiday home. Grrrrr.

milf90 Thu 17-Jan-13 18:39:55

Eh??? How can this happen??

Those loaves would have been flung across the supermarket had someone pinched my trolley grin

TinyDancingHoofer Thu 17-Jan-13 18:52:32

Wouldn't have happened at waitrose grin

WhatchuTalkinBoutPhyllis Thu 17-Jan-13 19:00:57

bangham I very maturely picked up all six loaves of bread passed them back to her and told her to piss off.
She had the audacity to looked shocked. Then look around for other unattended trolleys.

IAmNotAMindReader Thu 17-Jan-13 20:19:23

At Christmas I went to Asda with a friend. She managed to nab the last small troooey and was stood holding it as I told her I would mmet her back at the car as I had to nip somewhere else first.
This lady then breaks in mid sentance and starts trying to wrestle the trolley out of my friends hands saying "Ooo these are like gold dust at the minute"
My friend pulls the trolley back towards her and strange woman says "Its not yours is it?"
Friend says "Well, yes obviously"
Woman wandered off in search of another trolley to half inch of someone.

Why are people panic buying? It's to the apocalypse is it? <packs zombie killer and a tin of beans>

Christ that's how tired I am! That sentence made no sense what so ever!

timidviper Thu 17-Jan-13 21:39:26

How ridiculous! Have I missed the news that we are about to be snowed in for weeks and weeks? Snow is never that bad in this country, I've never heard of people panic buying before.

A bit late now but you could have said, "Oh thanks for the bread", and grabbed the trolley and walked of with it and her loaves smile

In defence of Asda, we have a nice Eco one near us where people behave normally - mostly grin
