have you any idea how heavy a basket full of findus crispy finests is??
Anyways, what if the supermarket is the local corner shop?
Either way, you have to admit that even though you have your own prejudices, your actions are selfish in themselves.

No I don't see how it's selfish, I don't believe in people getting special treatment when it's not needed.
If a big supermarket is your local corner shop well that's an unfortunate inconvenience, just like my local shop being a small shop that doesn't have everything is an unfortrunate inconvenience.

By not regarding the unwritten law of the jungle, you are in essence being selfish. No way around that particular point. Whatever your reasons are im not here to argue them, just acknowledge that you are a selfish miserable (resisting the temptation to use old here) git!! ;)

That is not me at all.  I would show great concern for someone else provided it was real.

I woudl if the child was crying over something that happened i.e. a fall or if it was a baby but not if it's just a spoilt brat that's not getting the sweets it wants.

You go to the express checkout and some auld biddy is there in front of you, she thinks its alright to go the express checkout (10 items or less) with her entire weeks shopping. In fairness she is chancing her arm, your one behind the till should have told her to sling her hook and go to another checkout!
I do that all the time and nobody says anything.
How about people who go into a massive supermarket to buy 3 things they could get in the corner shop and then expect special treatment?
Why does that not surprise me  ::)

doesnt have to be abided by your good self and that you have no problem with jumping in there with 365 packets of cookstown sausages
:D Very good, you do admit, you like your sausages POG

have you any idea how heavy a basket full of findus crispy finests is??
No, he ain't got a clue, sure he hates the things. You stick it to em Puckoon.


Just a quick question for you pints, do you venture south of south armagh for the shopping at all??

Yes, into dundalk and superquinn if I'm around home though I suppose south armagh isn't my first home anymore. 
Why?

How can you change your first home?
Paint, wallpaper, put a new car port on, tar the drive, add a conservatory, surround sound in all rooms, wireless internet, - the list is endless?
Why? Are you planning a little renovation?

No but I didn't like my first home very much. I'm no longer living there so I wish I could say that somewhere else was my first home.

You know why yourself now don't you. I need to know which supermarkets to avoid don't I.
You and me would have some craic if we ever met at the shops, you'd be parked in the parent and toddler spot that I was looking for and then when I get to the express checkout with my spoilt child crying, what would be in front of me.... sure it would be you and your sausages and sweets  :D :D
Am I safe enough to shop in Carrick??
