My Pet Peeve for the Letter G
G is for Grocery Aisle Hogs
There are a few chores I really don’t like doing and one is grocery shopping. The cost of living has sky-rocketed over the last decade including the cost of a basic necessity of life called “food”.

Those people that like to walk down the middle of the aisle and then stop to look at something and block the whole aisle with their cart. I always try to at least shimmy my cart over to the side in order for people to pass me when I want to stop. One time I got so perturbed at a person who did this that I turned my cart around and decided to go down a different aisle. A few others followed my suit since this person had no intention on even trying to move their cart to let others pass. As it turned out, a few aisles across I saw this person coming and since I was already a bit pissy at them I decided to show them what it was like, so I purposely hogged the aisle and pretended to be looking for a certain item. I knew she was waiting to pass me but I didn’t budge. I had to snicker when she did a huge huff, turned her cart around and went the other way. I did hear her say “some people have no consideration!
