Shufflers & Goppers

I really don't know what it is with people today. They just seem to be walking about in a trance most of the time. Especially at the supermarket.

Today was no exception. In the Tescos in Rugby today, zoefruitcake and I needed to navigate a shop full of shuffling gawpers like in some weird Krypton Factor cum Day of the Dead assault course. This seems to happen more and more these days. People just seem to stand about gawping or shuffle really slowly around the place with no consideration for those who also share the same space as others.

Its the same on the road. Drivers these days seem to have this "couldn't care less about other drivers" attitude. Courtesy seems to be lacking.

I blame Thatcherism and Punk. You'd never have this with Prog rockers and the SDP.
