Have You Ever … Annoyed Mikey?!

A few months ago, we found out how easy it is to annoy Adam. You may have just been humming along living your life when some random dude in a red Honda Fit flipped you off and called you a granny-ass driver.  That was Adam.  Now it is time to see how difficult it is to annoy Mikey: the self-proclaimed master of zen.  You know the rules: For each question that you answer ‘yes’ to, give yourself a single point. When you reach the end of the quiz, add up your points and post your total in the comments section.

  1. 4 but honestly, the self-check-out lanes at the grocery store here have no limits. People regularly use them with a cart load of groceries. Really.

  2. 1. I think that means Michelle M. wins him fair and square. If, for any reason, she is unable to fulfill her duties, Craig and I must fight to the death for him.

  3. 6. I thought this would be median, apparently, it’s the high score so far. And I was really hoping to be in the FDot level of pointage here! 😦


  4. 2. I think you are going to have to elaborate about the self-checkout item. No one seems to understand why it’s a big deal to you.

  5. Now Michelle has to fight Paul for Mikey.

    I probably should start on my blurb before the next Have You Ever Annoyed Mikey consists entirely of things directed toward me.

  6. as requested: Self-checkout lanes are to be quick and simple. more items = more difficult = more time = me behind you wishing I could show you how to live

  7. My local BJ’s Wholesale Club has no limit on self-checkout and Stop & Shop has some with and without limits. I prefer to self-checkout as long as there aren’t morons and/or old people in front of me in line. I can self checkout an entire cart of merchandise before most people can check out their 2 items.

  8. @Adam — and when I do have to go to a cashier, I’d rather bag my own groceries than let them do it. I do a better job! OMG I’m completely a compulsive freak, aren’t I?!

  9. @Adam Nothing pisses me off more than baggers who put 3 items in every bag. I put it on the conveyer belt grouped by item so is it really so hard to put them in the bag in that order. All the frozen stuff in one, cans in another? Is that difficult? Especialy now that I have to pay .5 per bag. I have been known to compliment checkers on their bagging skills if they do a great job. Okay, it would appear I have issues. Deep breath.

  10. My grocery syore has it so you can get a hand held scanner that you take with you while you shop so you can bag your groceries as you go. I hate when there are people who bring unscanned stuff to the checkout for the pre scanned stuff.

  11. Tam: I totally do the same thing in the check out line! I hate when the baggers give me too many bags. And why do they insist on bagging milk? It has its own handle!

  12. When I would walk to the grocery store, I appreciated not having to hold onto handles filled with cold milk on my way home.
