I hate messy stores. I can not shop somewhere that isn't organzied. Like jeans in this section, shirts in this section, smalls in this section..etc. I can not stand chaotic places like TJ Maxx. The second I walk in it irritates me. I'd rather pay a little more and have an easier shopping trip.

rude or uninterested sales people. i've started sending emails about them. last weekend i had my autistic daughter with me and was trying on clothes for her (not easy). i asked the sales woman for a bigger size and waited and waited and waited. finally i went out and said "do you not have a bigger size"? her co-worker (standing right next to her) had to ask her and then she told her not me. so it was a second hand "no". bitches. that's another email i need to send.

I hate long, slow check out lines. Especially when the cashier gets about halfway through checking someone out and tells the customer that if they bought another item they would receive so much off. Then the customer runs around the store to find another item while the line is being held up. Another peeve of mine is when sales clerk keep bugging you when you don't need their help, but when you need assistance they are no where to be found!

All of the above except "overpriced clothes." I hate going to stores which are so understaffed that it's nearly impossible to get help, the lines are outrageous, and the overworked assistants are rude out of frustration. I'd rather pay a little extra for clothes so the shop can afford to make the shopping experience a pleasant one.

Not finding my size for sure. Well, not for my size, but my height. I am also only 5'3, and it is so hard to find pants that are a decent length. I tend to buy them a bit longer rather than shorter. I just wear tall shoes :P

Has to be not finding what I want in my size. You know when you fall in love with a piece of clothing then you can locate every other size of it but the one you need? Argh...worse than anything!

Sizes!!! Ugh. My body is a special sized thing, I can NEVER find pants that fit me!!! My legs are pretty slim, and my butt is kinda almost flat, and my waist and hip area is not slim, soooo when my jeans fit my waist and hips, they never ever EVER fit my legs and usually not my butt either. And when they fit my legs all nicely... well you get the point. I hate buying pants. And shoes! Ugh. One foot is a size 8and a half. The other is a 9. So when I get shoes, I clunk-limp around in them, with one shoe falling off. Its not a pretty picture and it makes me very saddened.

out of the choices rude salespeople... however there is nothing absolutely 100% worse than a overcrowded small store. i hate going into a store where there are too many ppl and not enough dang room! hahaha what can they do about stuff like that though? not much i suppose...ewwwwwww and like when they put all their sale clothes in one spot and there a bazillion ppl trying to get it at once! move or i'll choke a b*tch! hahaha

I'm ok with not finding my size, but long lines are hell for me, because I hate the feeling of having to hurry because people are waiting behind me. I hate it when there's lines to the dressing rooms too

To be honest, it's annoying when I can't find my size. Everything is made smaller these days... I've worked in sales going on 5 years now. While I like to make the customer happy and help them out, I don't like it when they think they can order me around or treat me like I'm poor. So if the salesperson is rude, I don't let it bother me so much only because I know how exhausting it can be to work in sales 50 plus hours a week and constantly have to face people. :) Although, I have encountered some salespeople where they just don't even give a flip at all and that right there is not right. I don't mind waiting in long lines because I know that people on the floor NEED to be in their zones to watch for shoplifters and help out the customers that are looking around for something. Just my two cents...

all of the above...and also those annoying people who follow you around and ask if they could help you find anythin i like to be left alone im not disabled if i need help i'll ask...express does this and it made me stop going there..they would wait for u to come out of the fitting room and then ask if they could get u another size or somethign similar to that item kinda like forcing u to buy it, that's a little much for me and i dont think is helping their sales..

Well-I think rude salespeople turn off the whole idea of shopping. It is also equally annoying to find something amazing (not in your size...) and everything it too much anyway!

Ugh, not finding my size!! I hate going to the store, only to find something I like and discover they are all out of the smaller sizes -- it happens 8 times out of 10 for me. I once asked a retailer why they didn't stock up on smaller sizes? Employee said that they buy the largest stock of size 6's through 10, a small chunk of 12+, and the smallest of 0-4. Whatever. I can stand a long line, because if I'm in it, that means that I actually found my size.

I am more aware of it now that I am heavier set. They try to ignore you or look thru you or they act like they are lowering themselves to help you. I hate that. I can be the most patient person in the worl when it comes to crowds and lines, but rudeness gets me everytime!

I used to be in sales, so it really gets to me when sales people are rude! I will let them know- subtly but obviously- their attitude is not necessary nor appreciated. Long lines are just ridiculous when you have five people wandering the floor and one person behind the counter. I don't want to be rude because I know first-hand that it isn't easy dealing with some customers and being on your feet all day, but come on!

I'm 5'3 so finding pants that aren't too long, or too short can be a pain. I've done the Petite section of stores and sometimes the pants are a little too short. If any other shorties have advice on where to get pants, holla back! Yours Truly, DesignRchic

I absolutely hate long lines. I think if they can see a long line, they should open up another register. Super long lines annoy me to the point that I'll just not buy something and leave.
