Shopping dos and don
« on: May 28, 2019, 10:54:28 pm »
Someone posted a joke on twitter about shopping rules. Made me wonder what are your rules for shopping?

Like the other day someone moved my trolley without asking while i was still holding onto it and to me, thatís a big no no (exception - safety reasons, e.g. Iím about to run over any part of you). Since it was the trolley from hell, and they pulled on it without warning, i had to wrestle with it and my back was not happy (so thereís kind of a reason beyond politeness not to do this). Anyway, the joke was:

ME: You didnít put the divider down so you have to pay for my groceries.

GUY BEHIND ME IN LINE: What?

CASHIER: Iím sorry, heís right.

ME: Also I get to keep any 4 things from your stuff.

GUY: Thatís insane!

CASHIER: No itís a lesser used rule but if he calls it he gets to.

I don't touch other people's carts unless absolutely necessary, and I certainly wouldn't move them if someone was still holding on to it!  Today I moved a cart over a couple of inches because it was blocking the aisle's exit and the cart's owner was spending way too much time with their kids picking out a treat.

One of my shopping rules is to check which way the traffic is moving along the meat cases, left to right or right to left, and I'll just go with the flow. It's surprising to me that not everyone does that. Another rule I have for myself is to group similar items together to make it easier for whoever is bagging my groceries: paper goods, frozen food, cleaners, dairy, etc.
