WTF is Paperboy??

Does kingshmegland have to smack a bitch?!

TAC is in many ways like the brother I never had (well, second brother, since I do have one), but still.. is there a thread here that doesn't have one TAC post that says "WTF is _______"?

Seriously, I have never heard of it. In the early to early mid 80's I spent time in every hockey rink arcade room in the eastern half of Massachusetts.

(Shhh, for me it was the local bowling alley, but to be honest, I've never heard of it either...)

I had Paperboy on the Super Nintendo. That was a damn fun game. I always hated that little... what was it, like a ghost/tornado/something that made a fuzzy noise when it appeared and chased after you.

Also it was from the era when video games had artwork that was not at all like what was in the game. Photo of some psyched up kid with an armful of newspapers. lol

Also also if I played that shopping cart game I'd probably throw my controller through the window.

Not sure about the Nintendo version.  But what you are saying rings a bell.  As I recall from the arcade version, I think it was a swarm of bees, if I remember correctly.  I think it came out if you took too long to deliver your papers.

That makes sense. I had it when I was 4 or 5 and was obviously bad at the game  :lol

I have a copy of the NES version, but I've never played. I should dust it off and give it a whirl some time.

#10 is pretty annoying. As someone who used to work in retail, it is very annoying to have to put things back where they belong. Even nowadays while shopping I still find myself putting things back where they belong  :-X

Gee, I wonder what #1 is...

"Leaving your cart in the parking lot rather than walking it back to the cart return station is not just lazy. It's downright annoying for anyone who thinks they're about to pull into a parking spot only to discover there's an empty shopping cart in the way."

Well, sure, if you leave your cart in a place that requires someone else to move it in order to park, you're an asshole.  But it is possible -- I'd say easy -- to leave it in a place that doesn't impede anyone else from doing anything.

I like how #13 on the list of "rude things you need to stop doing" is essentially "other."  That's just lazy writing.

Also a comment on #12 -- eating stuff you intend to buy.  I've never done this personally, but when my son was a baby/toddler, I would regularly grab a small carton of goldfish for him to eat while at the grocery store/Target.  It was about the only way to keep him chill while shopping and giving my wife a break.  No one -- whether store employee or otherwise -- seemed to have a problem with it.

I've never had an issue with it. You usually know when it's legit.

I don't think the issue is with the "open bag of goldfish" that later gets scanned; been there, done that.   I think the issue is for something like grapes where it's a consumable by weight.   "It's only one grape!" is fine for YOU, but not for the 100,000 customers that come through yearly, each taking a grape or two because, well, "it's only one grape!".

Fred Meyer stores have a small bin of fruit (bananas, oranges, etc...) available for any shopper to grab from at no charge to give their kids if they get hungry (and thus potentially fussy) while shopping. It's brilliant.

Using this example, since grapes are purchased by weight, if a bag has a handful of grapes plucked from it, it will cost less for the consumer who ends up buying it. They may get less by volume, but they will pay the per weight price accordingly. They aren't getting cheated.

My issue is people putting their grubby hands in a bag of food I will potentially eat from.
