None taken whatsoever, in my case at least.  If it ground your gears, well, it ground your gears.  Just wanted to give some insight as someone who has some experience of being a Tesco shelf-stacker; doesn't mean you didn't have the right to feel how you felt.

What Jayzus said. There have been many things over the years that have left me wondering about peoples behaviours.

"When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: the people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can't tell good from evil.

"But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own - not of the same blood and birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him. We were born to work together like feet, hands and eyes, like the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on him: these. are unnatural."

...when someone I genuinely think is talented gets deliberately sidelined by people I think of as short-sighted, poorly organised and unwilling to learn.

No, unfortunately. I shouldn't even have mentioned it, but sometimes getting a thought out of your head in whatever fashion can help.

I'd love to think that time will set this right, but unfortunately the world has far too many people who thrive by  taking the easy path of appeasing those with louder voices, rather than working to the greater good.

Thanks for asking though Shark, 'tis appreciated.

People talking on the quiet carriage of the train, either on their phone or to each other. You've got the whole train to talk shite that I do not want to listen to and still feel obliged to do it on the one carriage of the train reserved for people who'd like to travel in peace. Arseholes.

Hahaha lol. I know I am late to the party, but it happened to me once. Both guys also walked in their socks, for example, to go to the toilet. Also, never heard so many F bombs in my life.
