I have various pet hates. Hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs – all horrible creatures that run around, bite and shit. No, seriously, I have nothing against those animals. I do however have a lot of annoyances, most of which I have moaned about on my blog in the past and will continue to do so over the next forty years until I become Victor Meldrew.

I was annoyed today…

I’m off work this week and went into town today to look round the shops. One of the most irritating things about going shopping, is that when you enter a shop, an over excited, over helpful and over exasperating employee insists on pouncing upon you as you enter the door or trapping you in a corner, to make sure you’re OK and what they can do to help.

Go away! I just want to look around the shop in peace. I don’t want to be harassed by some jittery shop assistant trying to sell me something that is normally crap.

Equally, those who follow you around the store staring at you like you’re about to steal things. If I was a shoplifter, I would be trying to steal something of value, not a toothbrush holder!

The most annoying shop in Bath for customer harassment is the cosmetic store, Lush. I really like the soaps and smellies they sell there, but now avoid the shop completely for fear of having to enter conversation with the hyperactive and ridiculously polite people who work there and annoyingly appear to totally love their job.

I was in BHS today, shopping for light bulbs (I’m so ‘rock and roll’). For once, I actually needed some assistance. Was anyone there? Nope. I should have started hanging around the toothbrush holders and pretended to steal them.

    Lol – know exactly what you mean. Went into Lush before and
    upon my entry heard one of the store girls singing what sounded
    like “Zippedy doo dah”. Its haunting on a human level.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
