    WTF are you talking about? Every grocery store I've ever been to had the cashier bag the groceries if a bagger wasn't there at the register.

    That is one of the most petty complaints I have ever heard uttered by another adult. :upeyes:

    The people who picked it And the guy who
    put it out. The guy who put it out wears gloves.

    The cashier has been handling money and other items that have just been touched by customers with dirty hands This is the easiest way to have produce contaminated. This has been proven.

    I usually get my buggy when I get out of the car in the parking lot because some fat lazy democrat just walks away from it after they pull the last candy bar out of it.

    When I'm done with it I take it back in the store there where they keep a pile of them, you know, like the other two or three adults who shop there. You can recognize them pretty easy, their pants are up, they are WEARING pants and shoes.

    They don't have baggers here.
    Heck, they don't even have bags unless you want to pay extra.
    As for cashiers, last time I was in a walmart there were 6 lanes for them to check you out, and 50+ for self checkout.

    They've hiked up the minimum wage so high that nobody will hire for jobs that don't show a tangible income from them. It's just not cost effective to hire real people anymore, so they don't.

    The cashier touches every item I buy with her filthy hands. But there is a plastic barrier between us so it keeps us safe.

    I'll pass, looks like the nearest one to me is close to a thousand miles away. I'll stick to Dillon's if you don't mind.

    The cart corrals outside have two lanes with large signs for each lane. "Small carts" and "Large carts". It's quite amazing how many people can't read.
    The deli counter is worthless, you'll spend 30-45 minutes waiting to get your order filled.

    Kroger:
    prices

    We usually shop at ALDI and the worst thing about that place is sometimes the inventory is inconsistent with the stuff we always buy.

    I'm pretty sure The Daily Meal could be fake news :)

    Food and Wine is the real deal!!!

    All kidding aside, if you ever get near a Wegmans take a walk inside.

    Another great one is Seed to Table in Naples Florida.

    My brother has the same sense of humor.

    In the early days of self checkout, a store employee saw him approaching a regular checkout line and asks if he'd like to try self checkout. He says "sure" and they head over. Brother scans first item and places it on the belt and does the same for the second item. He takes the third item and without scanning it puts it on the belt. The nice store lady says no, you have to scan every item. "Oh," he says.

    He looks over at an old-school checkout line, points at the cashier and asks "you pay her to do what I'm doing, don't you? How are you going to pay me for doing the job you pay her to do?" Pause..."sir, it doesn't work like that." :p

    An older lady had the hots for a bag boy. While he was carry her groceries out to her car, she rubbed on him and said "Young man, I have an itchy upload_2020-10-1_12-42-43.png . He told her "Ma'am, you're going to have to point it out, all those Japanese cars look the same to me.

    Then you have to risk the cashier double scanning you items

    Walmart has bigger self check outs that have the belts to load your stuff onto, so there goes that argument
