Give Me Five Monday - Shopping

Becca over at BeccAa's Buzz has started a new meme. Here's what it's all about:

The 'Give Me Five' Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here's how it works. Each week, I will put out a random topic from my list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back here! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn't have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified.

The topic of today's list is - 5 pet peeves or dislikes associated with shopping.
  1. I don't like shopping in a crowded store. I feel like I can't move, and I hate that. Somehow I always seem to manage getting behind someone in a crowded aisle, someone who is moving at roughly the speed of a turtle. How is it possible to move that slowly? Why would you want to move that slowly? How long until I can get around?
  2. I don't like buying something at one store and then finding the exact same thing for a better price at the next store I go to. Then I wonder - is it worth going back and returning the first item so I can buy it at the 2nd store?
  3. I hate getting to the store and finding that they are completely out of the advertised item(s) that I really wanted.
  4. I don't like shopping without all of my coupons - because, if I don't have them, I am guaranteed to find something I need them for.
  5. I just don't like how much money it seems to cost!

  1. Lines, oh yes the lines. I just thought of this one. Don't you hate it when you get into a line and then the next line goes really fast and then you move over and then the line you were just in moves through and the guy that jumped in front of you needs a price check! LOL
    I love what you wrote, "Why would anyone want to move that slow?" LOL Great GM5 here today!!!!

  2. #2 is a REALLY good one that I totally forgot about! Great list - I agree with all of them!

  3. All great pet peeves. I hate to go to a store where there is a sale on something and nothing is there. It makes me wonder if there were any in the first place. Have a great GM5 day. :)

  4. I'm so with you on number one. I can spend all day shopping and have fun. But if it's crowded, I become very irritable and frustrated.

  5. Having to wait in line for paying for anything is VERY obnoxious...agreed!
