Trivial Things that annoy you (corona edition)

When someone approaching coughs and you try to hold your breath for 20 paces until you're past the danger zone, but just as you get to the epicentre of contamination you have to take  a massive deep breath sucking viruses into the deepest recesses of your lungs.

When you sneeze, through normal dust up the nose or something, and anyone within earshot cowers away.

The nose is pretty sensitive to foreign unwelcome elements, so if you sneeze you need to blow your nose straight after. Sniffing, like a lot of people do, may let the intruder do more damage.

The old ladies in the supermarket who insist on scrutinising the packet for 5 minutes before finally deciding if it's trolley- worthy.  In the old days I would reach over, grab what I needed and be on my way, now I can't with distancing so I have to stand and wait till the cost benefit analysis on the 21p tin of beans is complete.

I couldn't get to the milk for similar as a women in her fifties, neither frail nor old, decided she had to read every label of every pot of cream.  I went off for the rest of the list and left the milk until last.

My trivial annoyance is when I breeze past the hand sanitiser at supermarket entrances - I'm not touching that as anyone could have handled it - and there is the occasional sotto voce "tut".

Lots of people (at work) getting or had bought a dog this year. It’s not the annoyance really but even myself thought yeah I could get a dog. There’s going to be a lot of dogs (edit in UK). A golden age for vets ?

I’ve noticed that it is dozy old blokes doing this. Maybe because pre lockdown they didn’t do the shopping

And they have pushed prices into the stratosphere for genuine dog owners. Lost mine in the first lockdown but am not going to replace it at stupid covid prices

A real man has a list of items in aisle order and is looking to beat his personal best time.

Not round here he doesn’t. The dopiest ones are those out with their wife, standing around like a spare part.

I've noticed those blokes too.  That look of 'I'd rather be doing anything else than this on a Saturday afternoon' xD

Guilty (despite being an experienced shopper) I just like to know what's in it. I carelessly bought some rødgrød from lidl the other day, and rather than being made of the anticipated red berries, it was flavoured semolina.

They are virtually free from the rescue charities.

Why would anyone buy a dog?

Frenzy buying like the Dutch bulbs.

They only want dogs with a known   (xD:(:ph34r:) provenance.

I had the track record for both of mine.

Neither of them ever won anything.
