It bugs me to go to the grocery store and get hit up for all sorts of crazy stuff. Checking out the other day the cashier asked me if I wanted to donate a dollar to kids cancer research or something or other. Hey I just want to buy what I need to buy and get out of this place. But they ask you in a loud tone, kind making you feel bad with other customers waiting behind you. I shake my head.

Outside I get hit up by the local girl scouts on cookies. Damn!!! I have to buy those thin mints!!! So that hits me for a few bucks!!! Then someone wants to register me to vote or sign a petition where I get the reader's digest version and never the whole story.

By the time I get home, I feel bad, I am exhausted and I have to eat my thin mints just to get my energy up to cook dinner!!! :D

Ah, just complaining. If that's my biggest problem I got it made!! :D
You said it.

On the other hand, I was filling up my boat at Texaco in Parker last week and got hit up by 3 locals asking for money. Now thats awkward.

I hate the "you have to buy 10" to get the 99 cent block of chedder. I don't need 10 pounds of chedder! WTF!! Fry's is a pain in the ass. I prefer the Safeways.

lately in my local ralphs theres been a guy sellin the local paper...hes got a booth set up between the isles and the checkouts....and he hounds you....a bit WAY too agressive. i was unloading my groceries onto the belt drive thing and he approached me....i never made eye contact with him, just said "im not interested" and keep unloading....he continued to pitch his sale even as i was paying for my shit!....and get this....he had a mouth full of food! he was snacking on chips or cookies.

its one thing to be a driven motivated sales guy....but being pushy and talking to me with a mouth full of food isnt gunna get me to buy your damn paper.
