In My Dark Place

Went to Target to get this:

Hey lady in the middle of the aisle, do you REALLY need to stand in the middle? You can't scoot in so me and my cart can roll by? I am standing right in front of you waiting. Do I need to hit you with my cart? Cuz I will. Rolling closer..about to hit you. Looks at me blankly then moves just enough to let me by. I catch her gaze and won't look away first.

Hey lady in the next aisle over, SHUT YOUR KIDS UP! Just take whatever big brother has and give back to his little sister. He took it from her in the first place. Saying "Give it Back!" over like 10 times obviously isn't working..There are other people in the store trying to shop in peace. No one wants to hear WW III between your kids.

Hey lady in the aisle with 4 kids, can you move and have your conversation about blah blah blah somewhere else so I can just reach next to you and get my garbage bags? I'm only in here for 3 THINGS. The green monster is like uber-expensive to fill so I'm trying to stay on a budget and get out of here before I am tempted to buy crap I don't need so HURRY THE HELL UP!

Oh yeah, Target worker who is hogging up the ENTIRE aisle while stocking. Do you not notice a customer trying to get by? Exactly WHY do you work here? To stock for the hell of it? Or stock the shelves so customers can buy sh*t? Are you NOT here for the customers? So why must you completely not acknowledge my existence because you are doing SUCH IMPORTANT WORK that requires you treating me like crap?

My mind is now boiling. Irrational thoughts take over..I'm so irriated. I'll think I'll treat myself after all to something...I deserve it after dealing with all of these jerks.

It is clear I have issues. Let's just leave it at that.

That's how I feel every time I go to the store, I've been trying to stop, but it's not a reasonable possibility, but I still try to stop. What I do when I'm done shopping is go to youtube and look at videos angry people... it helps.

I seriously make a lot of noise with my cart till they move. As for other annoying people, sometimes I toss something really expensive in their cart when they are not looking.

Love that top on the left.
