    Drop Kicks and Oxygen Thieves

    I have noticed over the past few months, as winter has taken hold, and as hunting has waned, threads in general are becoming more trivial, so I figure I'd seize the moment and have a go too!
    In my house I do the shopping. Not because I have to, more because I want to. I like cooking (or more to the point eating). The regular trip to the supermarket though is an exercise in self control, to not let the Gordon Ramsey in me out. Not via culinary output either, more the verbal abuse of the trolls that so often frequent my local with their mind numbing stupidity.
    As you may have noted, I have a couple of bugbears.
    Pyjamas. There made for sleeping in. They are not "out" wear. Nothing screams "I have barely managed to drag my lazy arse out of the scratcher" than wearing your "jim-jams" to town.
    I have also three kids, little girls, all under 5, the youngest two are twins. Big deal, not like I'm the first, but I can still wrangle all of them to the front door, from the back of the carpark in an orderly manner. It would be nice to get a little closer but I've given up even attempting to park in the reserved spaces for mothers (and fathers) due to the fact they are always occupied by the same pile of shit cars, that never have kids in them. I'd hate to impose on the poor bastards who find it impossible to walk more than 10ft (and then the one sitting in the car eyes you up with the WTF you looking at look).
    Heaven forbid their park of convenience is actually occupied by a real parent, then our neurosurgeons have to park in the next most convenient position but to punctuate their disappointment they feel the need to leave the trolly in the park, blocking it for the next person. I guess this is their protest against the heinous atrocity that has been committed upon them.
    Don't get me started on trolley etiquette and my overwhelming desire to tip most peoples trolleys on the floor as they are full to the gunnels with shit that would not nutritionally sustain bacterium let alone a human child. Fuck diabetes, if I can't spell it I can't get it eh.
    Some days I just daydream about taking a samurai sword to Pack n Save just for kicks. Kill Bill would look like an episode of High 5.
    Anyway roll on Spring hunting and the lack of stupid threads like this.
    Please feel free to add your own dislikes and don't feel constrained to just supermarkets, fill ya boots.

    James - you are a man after my own heart.

    Just this afternoon hubby and I popped into the supermarket to grab some tissues and cold meds. We have something else that goes well with winter in our house - manflu. Anyway it was a quick trip but I spotted something that never fails to grind my gears. Sunglasses. Worn inside. Last time I checked, the sun is outside. Only idiots in MTV music videos wear sunglasses inside, in already dark night clubs. This chump was a very well fed 'gangster' type, maybe mid 40s, trying to look tough. Most of the time when we see this sort of character, Hubby follows up with a story about their bail conditions once we are back in the car.

    And James - why do you torture yourself with Pac n Save? Our local (Kilbirnie) is such a shite hole, it seems to attract the worst drivers of both cars and trollies and the car ride home is nowhere near long enough to tell of all the bail conditions of the shoppers. I have donned the Pac n Save once. Never again.

    Oh I don't shop (often) at Pack n Save, its would just be the best place to minimize collateral damage.

    You poor people! Dont you realise that its the RIGHT of those deadshits to park where they want , and give you "the look" cos they can ? This is exactly what generational dole-bludging does to people.

    Shame on you for thinking those folk are doing wrong...

    Actually I only go to our local Pak n Save cos they have the best fish selection in town , no-one else has whole fish ever.....

    LOL, my personal OMG what were you thinking moments were when I was in Perth, there is an area called Cannington that was muffin top central, the area just seems breed girls whom are size 16+ wearing size 8 lycra pants and a crop top they borrowed from a mate or got from the local supre store. Yikes!!

    I wear sunglasses indoors. What's the problem? They fall off if you put them on top of your head.

    You however, do not look remotely like an aspiring rap artist or gang member.

    Muzza you poor barstard, you must have a fish shop somewhere with fresh fish? Its the north island after all.
    I have not and will not ever eat fish from my local pack and save or any other supermarket for that matter. When I see "fresh" fish on display that I know for a fact has to be at least 12 days on ice it makes me want to puke looking at it.

    Aaagh, those putrid lumps of grey/white flesh that look like they're marinated in cow saliva that is palmed off as fish (for $30/kg). Man it is hard to get good fish anywhere.

    Fresh salmon my arse. It came from the fucking Sounds and we are in Hastings!

    Gee whiizz you guys must be RICH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I only eat trout cos I cannot afford sea fish...but it is a touché moment, isnt it cos a $100 odd for a licence would buy quite a lot of salmon and other fish!!!!

    I do not mind the supermarket (New World)...after a freezin week outdoors, at least it is warm, and by the time I get there after work, the sideshows are generally over

    9 odd years deep sea fishing where everything was usually snap frozen in less than 12 hours on ice( more like 4hours on average) and anything we took to the chef was as fresh as it could possibly be may have spoilt me?
    Even recreational fishing with my Dad these days I am (and I hate to say it) ANAL about chilling that fish immediately and not warming it up again(by washing the fish in the sea after gilling/gutting) Its all about maintaining the cold chain.

    Maybe they live a very long way out of town and figure that they may as well wear their night attire on account of them getting home so so late...
