OK, if you're guilty of doing any of these 12 things at our Longview or Tyler, Texas grocery stores, you need to stop immediately.

So now that I've said that, let me offer a personal apology for ALSO being guilty of some of the no-no's on this list.

But to be honest, I find that most Texas people are very gracious when shopping. MOST. It would seem some didn't take 'People-ing 101.'

I remember back when I worked at Target as a teen and recall several episodes of watching someone deal with some very, VERY rude behavior. You wouldn't believe some of the interactions I would see while trying to peacefully get people checked out and on their way.

Hey, we all have days when we're struggling and can easily forget some of these. These are good reminders for us all.

There are some behaviors many of us have seen that may immediately come to mind. Brazenly cutting in line is a HUGE no-no. That should be a given. Insulting people seems fairly obvious, but I've still seen it happen. Heaven help the person who goes after the last bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos when THESE people are nearby.

At the same time, there are some less obvious social faux pas that some people either seem to be unaware of completely or, even worse, know they shouldn't engage in but choose to anyway.

We enjoyed this helpful list from Readers' Digest. It outlines some of the rude behaviors we see, even here in the friendly Lone Star State.

I'm curious how many of these you've seen while shopping here in Texas. Any other rude behaviors you'd add to this list? Let me know at tara.holley@townsquaremedia.com.
