Things That Annoy Me - Edition #210049


I was in Boots today getting some lovely women-only things. I go to pay and the woman, who was already a bit rude, asked me if I wanted a bag. I obviously had no other bag on me so I gave her my best glare and said "yep".

NO YOU'RE RIGHT LOVE. I'LL CARRY THESE TWO GOODIES IN THEIR RECOGNISABLE GREEN PACKAGING FOR THE 10 MINUTE WALK THROUGH THE CITY, THEN I'LL GET IN THE LIFT UP TO MY DESK AND JUGGLE THEM WHIST SIMULTANEOUSLY LAUGHING AND CRYING ABOUT WHAT A CRAP DAY I'M HAVING.

Being a woman isn't easy but at least we have great anecdotes.

  1. I'm sorry you had to experience this, it must have been awful. You should have thrown them at her and ran away (though obviously then you wouldn't have gotten to keep them, so it would have been a bit of a lose lose situation)

    And that's my crap advice for the day

    Bye!

  2. Oh god this is something that annoys me so so much 'do you want a bag?' 'no it's ok I'll just strut round proudly waving them in the air...of course I want I bag!' why would they even ask this stupid question. Mini rant over haha! xxx

  3. Oh goodness you poor thing, why are some sales assistants so rude?! Whenever I serve these to people I always wrap them in some blue tissue for them before putting them in the bag as our bags are see-through! I always seem to bump into a hot guy when I'm buying mine and I end up turning into a tomato :(
    Love Holly x

  5. Dreadful! It's like when you buy contraceptives in Sainsbury's and they put them in those frigging ginormous plastic security boxes and then wave them around so that everyone can see what you're buying. Horrendous. Hope you have a better day tomorrow, at least it's over for another month! x

  6. HA! This bugs the hell out of me too, not just with lady items but when shopping in general. If I'm stopping off for bits for dinner and have 3+ bulky items....then yes, it goes without saying that I want a bloody bag!!! x

  7. Ha ha, this is great.

    I generally hate that 'would you like a bag?' question regardless of the product needing to go in it.

    I also hate it when they give you a ridiculously small bag, when that dreaded green packaging just pokes out of the top.

  8. Hahah, I also hate this, especially when said bag is still ridiculously see through and you have to parade through town with it happily swinging alongside you. I mean, I know it's only natural, but I don't want the whole world to see my shopping bags. And it's bound to be that one time you meet your male friend and they awkwardly ask "ooh what you been buying then?" (: xx

  10. I am such a child when it comes to this, I hide them in my basket and get embarrased if a man serves me...then I realise I am 24...then again I do not like strangers knowing that much about my cycle
