It IS part of their job, right?
Scan and bag. Scan and bag.
And please note that this process can be performed much more quickly and efficiently if you (the cashier) don't stop what you're doing (just frickin' scan and bag, wouldja?!) to attempt to make small talk with me or my children (who have already wreaked havoc throughout the aisles and just need to BE DONE.)
Maybe I get annoyed because I'm eerily skilled at this.
I can't pack a suitcase. I can't load the dishwasher efficiently. But hey, I can bag groceries like a pro. In either paper OR plastic, thankyouverymuch.
I'm already "that woman" in the grocery store who sweeps through there with her 3 monkeys. (
So yeah, I'm picky. I want my groceries bagged in paper. I've given up on plastic because I come home with no less than 1,000 bags per trip. It's like they pack 1 item (a can of corn here, a gallon of ice cream there) per bag!
So give me paper bags. And fill them to maximum capacity please. But do so efficiently. As in, don't tip my eggs vertically and pack them with a container of juice and a (soon-to-be-squished) loaf of bread.
Yeah, that would be great.
Can you tell I'm still feeling quite "funky"? But I have made a vow to myself to begin the early morning running again on Monday, despite the lack of daylight. And am having lunch with the Girlz tomorrow (a guaranteed mood-lifter). And the Red Sox are still in it. All good reasons to smile.
