NI2 What's your shopping pet peeve?

A pet peeve or pet hate is something that you dislike very much, or that makes you extremely angry. For example, my shopping pet peeve is struggling with my packed trolley through the aisles, because, as everybody knows, they tend to turn right when you just want to go straight on to reach the long queue at the checkout.

  1. My shopping pet peeve is queueing. I'm a very impatient person, and it's so boring!. Furthermore, I always choose the slowliest till when I go to pay my buying. It's my fate!

  2. Really good, Isabel! Thanks for sharing your shopping peeve with us.

  3. When I go to buy clothes in the shopping centre, and I must often try on its in different shops. This is my shopping pet peeve. I hate taking my clothes off again and again!

  4. Well done, Mª Angeles! I really hate trying clothes on too.
