Thanks! I am late 60s and still work all week so have no choice unless I have shopped online. And yes, I do dawdle round, looking for best buys, freshest produce, referring to my list.

Actually my pet peeve is men shopping as they rush in and out, then back home you find loads of stuff you didn't want and hardly any of the stuff you did want!

It is bad enough being old without forever being told what nuisances we are and how rude according to others on here.

I am still contributing taxes, not rude and valued by my family, one day you will be old too.

PS See the poem on Are you Ageist?

And when two of them together side by side are taking up the whole width of the pavement, are in front of you and walking really slowly. I understand that they can't help walking slowly, but is there really any need to take up the whole width of the pavement?

RegularComper90 i hate when this happens, especially when they dont indicate you walk over the road and they decide to just turn into the street and nearly run you over.

4x4 prams on public transport the ones where the wheels look like they belong on monster truck.

The baby ass ain't gonna know the difference between standard Β£100 pram and a 4x4 pram that cost Β£100's and they take up so much room and block the way most time.

Getsome this really annoyed me when i was working in retail. My former colleague would spend ages taking to the same customer and que would build shed ring for me to come to the till and by the time she had finished talking id served rest of the que for her. I once snapped at her and said we have a huge delivery to get through so either you hurry on tills or ill stay on tills and you can through that huge delivery instead she was quick to speed up then

eyeballkerry this really annoys me this. This one time I didn't know he was waiting for me to move so he could have a look, i rang me other half to say some random stranger was stood behind me lurking and i wasn't quiet about it either. He was quick to walk away after giving me the dirtiest look and sending his wife to tell me he was waiting for me to move. I responded by saying well instead of staring me down making me feel uncomfortable why didnt he just ask me to move or say excuse me.

People on their mobile phones whilst walking. It does my swede right in.

Every single youngster that passes the house is fiddling with their phone even if they're in groups and talking amongst themselves.

Even worse is people on their phones while driving. Now that really gets on my pip.

The "F" word seems to be a part of the normal English language now unfortunately. At one time it was a word only used for special circumstances such as when one was under a lot of stress.

People wearing their masks on their chins and necks, but not over their mouths and noses like they are supposed to. I have been seeing this quite frequently and it irritates me. What is the point in wearing a mask if you aren't even going to wear it properly?!
