    The "lady"? How about the woman, or the female, but why do you elevate her description to a "lady". Are you one of the cops who arrests the "gentleman" after catching him committing a heinous crime?

    That would open a possible opportunity to me, hmmm. If one was a jerk to me, I can raise their blood pressure too, and that will shock them, if they thought I was. a manager I mean.

    You can't get here from there!
    I order my groceries from Kroger online. I pull up they load them in the back and I am "outa there!"

    It takes 5 - 10 minutes start to finish and I spend less than when I go to the store in person.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    I hear what you are saying but I tried that a couple of times. I like to pick out my own produce and meat. And check the expiration dates.

    Yep, it happens the same way with us - we see the bagger bagging away with other shoppers, but they leave when our stuff comes sliding their way. I even make it easy for them by putting all of the cans, bottles and other less fragile items first and fragile items last so they don't have to use precious brain power to sort them.

    I do what I can to self checkout now. I used to be opposed to it, but now I prefer it. Sometimes the self checkout aisles are run by strict clerks so I can't check out above their item limit, but most of the time, I get on in there and do my thang when it isn't busy.

    I use the self checkout, and bag my own. Even prior to Covid, I’d rather not have someone else touching my foodstuffs.

    I’m no germaphobe, but who knows where those hands have been? I began this a couple of years back, when I saw a checker sneeze into her elbow. Then wipe her hand across her nose. Fuggiddaboutit.

    And with less than one bag of groceries, I get through that line quickly.

    The Mennonite store where I go to still does that....I was there the other day, after all my goodies were wrung up the cashier asked me "your total is $215, does that sound right?".....
