    I'm with you on that one but apparently my husband is more of the pretend variety. There have been times when I have considered investing in a cattle prod as it takes too long with a taser as you have to remove the end. :angelic:

    Yep, I'm one of those that look around them, over their shoulder and ask them 'please excuse me' if they are taking too **** long! Can't have people just hanging around taking their time, where DO they think they are? :rolleyes:

    As recently diagnosed, shopping takes me 3 times as long as I study the carb count of everything I buy! ;-)

    My record is 2 1/2 hours to look for snacks I could have... Ended up with nuts. Counted towards my exercise though, must have covered about 2 miles going round the store five times!
