Certain groups of people are taught by the Catholic church to not practice birth control and to have big families. Then with these big families, the people cannot afford to pay for their kids. They they go on welfare and food stamps and make the taxpayers pay for their stupidity. They take their kids to the emergency rooms and expect free care. Once again, a taxpayer burden. Then it affects the economy of the state and now the state is almost bankrupt.

Ooh boy. I have a ton of them. The biggest is people who don't wash their hands when they should. grrrr. I also hate it when people touch the unwrapped bread or nuts or dried fruits in the bulk bins the supermarket. Get a clue people. I don't want to eat anything that you have touched with your filthy hands. Fruits and vegetables can be washed, but there is no way to wash bread. I also hate it when people take a handful of food and eat it in the supermarket. Everyone else has to pay for this in increased prices. It's stealing plain and simple. I don't mind if someone takes one grape to see if they are sweet, but you shouldn't eat a whole bunch without paying for it. The people who do this aren't starving. They are usually overweight. If someone was truly starving and couldn't afford to buy even 1 piece of bread, I could understand stealing a bit of food. It doesn't make it right, but it is understandable, but for a person with an income and money to do it, it's really bad.

One of my worse pet peeves of people is seeing how they treat handicap or the elderly in stores. People think they have the right away, they are in a bigger hurry or rush, and other very rude behavior. Everyone is out toi save a buck or get that best present for their love ones and friends. But that is no reason to grab something out of someone elses hand, push them, run them over with your cart, or stand in the middle of the isle why talking on your cell phone like you own the place.
