    People with no sense of humour.

    Drug addicts.

    Thieves of any description.

    That's strange, ups usually just drops everything and runs. Even when a signature is required.

    .....people who fart in the lift.....not loudly, but those sneaky ones that hang in the air after they leave.......worse than that is those that fart going up a long escalator...and you are stacked up on the down side going up.

    My farts don't stink....strewth I wouldn't lie....they use to, but since I stopped eating tons of meat my farts stopped smelling...they still have lots of sound....nothing like a good fart to clear a room, that rotten egg sulphur dioxide smell that makes your eyes water....LOL.

    Steel supply stores that don't have prices on anything. There is one not too far from me that has a very large selection of all kinds of stuff (welding supplies, tools, paint, PPE, pipe fittings, etc) but not a single price tag...

    That's 'cause the high volume regular customer usually gets a good discount and the once-in-a-while walk in doesn't. Sneaky. Posted price would mess up that scam.

    Re: Got A Gripe?

    You need to pick up a couple of items at the store, and you're in a hurry. They have one "Express Checkout Lane"...10 items or less. The person in front of you has a basket piled so high they can barely see over it...........ARRGGGGHHHHHH!!!! Where are the LANE POLICE???????

    I've dealt with that scenario in the wholesale computer parts business. The easy solution is to put the higher price on the item and volume customers know what their discount percentage is.

    You forgot about turning it into 2 or 3 transactions and bringing out the coupons.

    Insurance companies.
    I battled one for more than four years over income protection....ended up kicking their butts in court but, we came real close to losing everything in the process.
    Was it worth it???? Damn right it was.
    I still hate the necessary evil.

    Re: Got A Gripe?

    I HATE.......without any degree of remorse those price tags that say "special offer this week end only $99.99"....or any other price tag that stops short of the next dollar by one cent.

    In OZ we stopped using 1 and 2 cent coins a few years ago, and the lowest coin is 5 cents, and the bastards also stop short with prices like $19,999.95 for a bleeding new car, but you pay a lot more just to get it on the road.

    I religiously stand my ground and wait when a shop keeper has to give me 5 cents change when the price is sort by that magic 5 cents......just to be a bloody arsehole.
