People who choose to have kids, maybe even more than just one or two and then spend their entire waking day moaning about kids and telling you how hard it is to have kids.

People who don't have kids who think it's easy to have kids.

Nobody who doesn't have kids thinks it's easy......They're reminded every time they meet someone who has kids already that it's the hardest thing on earth etc.

Default Re: Room 101

At a till in Park & Shop DIP yesterday when three women stood behind me. I was still putting shopping on the belt when one of them stood in front of me and put her stuff down between mine.

I looked at her in a ‘what the hell do you think you’re doing” kind of way. She just giggled and said “it’s ok”. I got hold of her shopping and put it behind mine.

I don’t think it was the Aldi effect when someone doesn’t have a lot to be scanned so they’re let in front (the lady on the till was still scanning my shopping).
I don’t think she was wanting me to pay for her stuff because she’d already got her money ready.

I’m still trying to figure it out.

Good on you. I'd say it makes a difference but it probably doesn't. These people (rude people) will always push in or be rude if they can get away with it.
