What erks you?

I know that we all have something that absolutely positively gets to you...erks you!
You know when you just can't take it anymore and you just go on a rampage and start freaking out on anyone who is within touching distance. It happens to me all of the time and I was just wondering what it is that erks you and how do you deal with it?

I usually love the Holiday's people, even if they are in a bad mood will say it or even say it back when you tell them "Happy Holiday's," "Have a Merry Christmas," "Happy New Year," "Happy Hanuka," (I think you get my drift). So when I went to the store during the 'Holiday's' I was in a good mood going into the store and then a crazy lady by the time I left!

I live in a small town and this particular store has to accommodate 8 to 10 cities/towns. So when people from another town come over to said store and you haven't seen them in a long time of course you want to chat and see how the fam is doing and so on and so forth; but when it comes to people who just want to run in and get what they need and get the heck out it doesn't work and they act like they are at their house entertaining them! They stand right in the small aisle and act like your in their way. I start to go down the aisle and one of them will see me and just continue to talk, I say 'excuse me,' and they look at me like I am an alien with one big eye and fifty arms. I say it again, 'excuse me,' they just ignore me this time like we saw the alien and we are over it. This time I just take my cart and act like they aren't there and say, 'excuse you!' Then they want to move out of the way and talk about me like I am not there. I can't stand it and it erks me! I told them why don't you go into the attached eatery, get a drink and talk to your friends? They can't seem to understand that this is a place to shop and I totally get when you see someone that you haven't seen in a long time but c'mon when I say excuse me more then once and you don't move you deserve more then a cart in your achilles!

that is funny. We used to live on a small island and going to the one and only market was like that. Sometimes if someone recognized my car in the parking lot they'd come in to chat, and it could be annoying if I was in a hurry and just wanted to do serious grocery shopping.
