Things that bother me most about grocery stores:

3. The same store (say Food Lion or Walmart) will have food in different places depending on the location. Bleh.

2. No one knows where things are in the store. I asked several employees yesterday for directions and they told me the wrong thing. Thankfully the man in Food Lion (my last stop yesterday) knew where lemon juice was because the many people in Walmart and Super Fresh didn't know.

1. Putting Meat and Produce in the SAME BAG. BLAEH!!! I went to three stores yesterday (two of them I bought meat in) and two of the stores put produce in with my meat. WHAT?!? I got home and was unpacking and was shocked. This happens to me often. Even though when I put my meat on the conveyor belt I space the produce way afterward. I usually put the meat up first and then the boxed goods and then the canned goods and then the produce. Sigh. Shouldn't that be part of the training for store check-out people?

Are you grumbly-hateful or humbly-grateful, what's your attitude...?

Meat should never be put in the same bag as produce!

Ha ha! you sound like an old housewife:-) I agree-the cashier/baggers are not trained properly. My fav: when you spend an half hour picking out the perfect fruit, carefully put it in the cart and on the belt-and then WHAM! the cashier slams it onto the scale;end of perfect fruit.

I, too, put things in order on the belt to "help" the bagger get it right and also to help me when I get home so I can put the groceries away according to "type"-you go Girl, keep the baggers straight!

Thanks Rachel. We have to keep these people straight.

Oops! Rachel is NOT that grocery store savvy-I wrote that from her new mac:-)

Ha. I hadn't even thought about how funny it was that Rachel knew so much about grocery shopping until now. Sorry Aunt S.
