Krush groovin', body movin'

I am organized. When I go to the market I place my heavy items together, my frozen items together, my veggies together, all to make check out easy for me and for the bagger. Therefore, would you be mad if the TJ's clerk bagged your groceries as such:

4 lbs of frozen chicken on top of a bag of potato chips. Gallon of milk on top of tortillas. And in my last bag, the kicker, 2 cans of kidney beans, 2 cans of mandarin oranges, 2 large cans of diced tomatoes...ON TOP of a carton of eggs.


Not to be a bitch, but when I got home I called the manager. He said the guy was 'new' but I don't think you need to work in a grocery store to figure out that makes NO SENSE. Now I have f*ed up eggs and potato chips.

I know what you mean. I got fed up with the baggers that I ended up self checking myself over $100 worth of groceries. I bring canvas bags and they would put like 2 loafs of bread in one! ARG!!

Hi, I'm new to your blog. I love your wit especially in relation to your children. I had to comment on this because I am a bagging groceries extrodinaire and I will bitch at anyone who does it 'wrong.' New certainly has nothing to do with it, it's common sense. Heavy stuff does not go on top of breakables... he was just lazy. Seriously, they hire people like that to bag groceries meanwhile it took my husband 2 years to find a steady carrier. :/ Wtf. Oh well. Sorry, tidbit of a rant. :)

Baggers? A level of service that's unusual, though not unknown, in the UK. Personally, I have to order everything on the conveyor belt so that it's ready to go into the correct bag, so that it's then themed for top cupbooard, bottom cupboard, fridge, etc. Hmm...I may have some unresolved issues here.

Why not just take the eggs, stomp on them, throw the container against the back wall while you're at it before putting them in the bag. CANS on top of EGGS?! Ridiculous...

When did common sense make its departure from our world?

Then again, people do need to be told not to spill hot coffee into their laps, so, guess you can't expect too much anymore.

That is one of the best ways to piss me off. I do what you do, too. I keep them separate in my cart. I place them on the counter in a near, organized fashion. I go as far as to watch the bagger put every single thing in the bags because oi, my migraines are deadly.

With our local supermarket you're lucky if your food makes it to the bags without being crushed. I'm sure they teach the checkout people that food must be thrown through the scanner. I've had to stop them on more than one occasion and point out that I have to eat the food once I get home. Idiots.

Actually they're probably timing the cashier to make sure they're throwing the maximum number of items per second. Been there, done that.

So I arrange my stuff correctly and bag my own if possible. I end up being thankful for crappy customer service as it curtails my shopping urge, saves me gas and helps me appreciate all that I already have...
