The Monday Peeve 29

Monday Peeve kitty

Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the #TMP tag, and link back to me (or not ~ I dgaf), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen! I have feelings!

Wtf is up with these farking grocery stores? No, I am not talking about the empty TP shelves and jerko hoarders. Can’t stand them either, but people don’t like my plan of shooting them so ya know whatever. I am talking about Amazon and regular grocery stores who appear as though they will deliver regular stuff to you (not TP), so you spend time filling up your online cart to the required minimum or more, jump through the virtual hoops to checkout, and only then do they tell you whoopsie there are no delivery dates available like ever.

Why can’t they say this upfront so you don’t waste time filling your cart? How stupidly inconvenient for the customer! Gawd, I hate them. 😡😡😡😡😡

Let’s give Target some credit. They tell you immediately that no delivery is available in your area as soon as you begin shopping online and click the delivery option . This is less annoying in the scheme of annoying things… since everything nowadays is some degree of irritating AF.

  1. I know, right? No delivery dates available where I live until, possibly, Thursday, and that was as of last week. Why fill up your cart if everything is out of stock and you can’t get it for a week (if that). Still, bless those who are still doing what has become important vital work, helping to keep us safe and fed.

  2. I’m glad I’m not alone that I want to shoot them all 🤪
    Actually here also for buying groceries online is like this…you may spend half an hour adding the things in your cart and then at checkout they even ask you to select your preferred delivery slot…only to find out no slots available 🤬 What the heck…tell me before I start no?

  3. I am really good at this social distancing thing as even before this pandemic, all I ever did was sit by my computer and write. The thing that bothers me is that my hair is getting very straggly now and my toenails are getting very long, so what do I do?

  4. So right! It seems that they want us to waste our time before they tell us…. sorry, no can do.

  5. My local grocery store at least lets you know right on its home page to check for delivery slots first (of which there are none available).

  7. That’s happened to us a few times as well. Try Instacart. We’ve used it a couple of times and we do get a date for delivery, but it’s sometimes up to a week later. We ordered this morning and the first delivery is on Saturday!

  8. One advantage of shopping in the actual store. Of course, that is also probably the ONLY advantage! 🙂

  9. One grocery chain here in Norway has a banner right in your face telling you “We’re busting our gut to deliver stuff but it’ll be like, late, ‘mkay?” or words to that effect. I’m just happy they deliver. Fortunately, folks our age remember having to wait weeks for stuff in the mail so we also remember how to plan ahead. Go us! 😎
