Was I being unreasonable to comment on trolley?

A lady and I were in the same aisle or the supermarket and I made what I thought was a friendly comment about her trolley.

She got really angry and asked what the duck it had to do with me.

A supermarket trolley?

Or one of those cool granny ones? I've seen some really fancy ones lately.

What exactly did you say to offend her so much? grin

We can't decide if YWU unless you tell us what you actually said.

What did you say to her?

SpuriouserAndSpuriouser Sun 15-Oct-17 14:23:56

Like those trolleys that people use to bring stuff home in, or what she was buying?

Depends what you said.

I hate it when people comment on my shopping.

'ooh, are you having a party....'

No. No I'm not.

queenthequeen Sun 15-Oct-17 14:25:06

I said something like oh you must like Dr Pepper as she had a lot of them)

Yeah it depends what the comment was surely?! Did you make some kind of judgemental comment on the type of food she had in there?!

What was the comment? I feel this needs more context …

AnonymousTomato Sun 15-Oct-17 14:26:21

Why would you feel the need to comment on someone else’s trolley

Mycarsmellsoflavender Sun 15-Oct-17 14:26:37

As in " oh you've got one that veers off to the left of its own accord too" or " I bet you're having a party with all that booze"? Without knowing what you said, how can we comment on whether YABU?

What business is it of yours?

greatbigwho Sun 15-Oct-17 14:26:50

Yeah, that sounds quite judgy tbh

2cats2many Sun 15-Oct-17 14:26:51

Maybe it's her guilty pleasure. No need for her to be so rude though.

Nousernameforme Sun 15-Oct-17 14:27:02

Why would you say that?

queenthequeen Sun 15-Oct-17 14:27:04

No none of my business I guess! I thought I was being friendly blush

Gammeldragz Sun 15-Oct-17 14:27:04

YWBU, never comment on the contents of someone's trolley!

SaucyJack Sun 15-Oct-17 14:27:14

So misunderstood, indeed.

Mycarsmellsoflavender Sun 15-Oct-17 14:28:23

X post. Yes, I think you came across as a bit nosy.

SpuriouserAndSpuriouser Sun 15-Oct-17 14:29:05

Maybe you just caught her on an off day? To be honest people peering at my shopping and commenting on it is annoying, but you would have got a vague "yes" and a polite smile from me.

Mycarsmellsoflavender Sun 15-Oct-17 14:29:34

Although she didn't need to be rude. I would just have ignored your comment.
