MelGoesOnTour: I seem to be often subjected to, when at the grocery store, the slowest people in front of me in the aisle's as well as when waiting in line. It's when in the aisle's that I often seem to be behind older folks who use their grocery carts as walkers, arms folded and leaning across the hand-rest. And they are slow. Naturally, I know this helps support them (especially the older folks) but it is a nuisance just the same mainly because these people are painfully slow. Slow as sloths for the most part. Add to that the fact that they generally push their carts in the middle of the aisle---rather than at the right/left sides as traffic should dictate---these people are veritable roadblocks. And annoying. I do my best to skirt around them but it's not always easy to do. More often than not I find myself having to backtrack the aisle to get to the next aisle; this, of course, puts a damper on my own shopping experience which typically involves alternating aisle/travel-direction. This sort of inconvenience is intensified if I happen to be behind one of these "aisle blockers" at the checkout line. This sort of shopper will typically pay with cash and coinage (counting out each nickel verrrry slowly) or painstakingly write a check (making sure to make the exact entry in the checkbook right there rather than wait until they get home). Once this ritual is completed, it's generally followed by the woman---and it's invariably an old woman---organizing her suitcase-sized pocketbook, a task that can take seemingly several minutes. Grrrr....
vudukungfu: Kids should be given chores and they can earn an allowance. this teaches them the value of work and wages before they can even get a job. Which is important.
Mell of a Hess: debug: I thought that 50% of the benefit of having kids was indentured servitude.What's the problem?Growing up in my Dad's house it was.
