For a small group of people, they consider it their solace and escape -- an excuse to be without the kids (ideally), their partner, just a chance to have some alone time and a bit of sanity they may not otherwise.

For most everyone else, it's absolute busy work, from walking through every drawer, cabinet, and closet, along with the fridge and freezer and creating a list, to lugging countless bags back inside and put the contents inside away until the following week's trip.

And countless more.

So, without any further adieu, let's hop right into it. Here are the 20 biggest annoyances while grocery shopping according to you/New Englanders. (And these are in somewhat in order from least annoying to most annoying. Sort of.)
