Speaking of bag boys/men.... do you ever go to a certain lane when you check out so that you can have 1 certain bagger? I do... There's this one guy, he's sorta slow about it, but when I get home to put groceries away it's SO easy. All of my frozen stuff is in 1 place. All the fridge stuff in another. And then pantry stuff seperated. I love that cuz my freezer is in the garage, pantry upstairs and fridge WAAAAAAY on the other side of the room. Saves me alot of running, plus keeping the frozen & cold stuff together helps save it for the long drive home.
And I HATE the teenaged baggers. It's like MY LORD! Have you never bought food and felt the fury of broken eggs, smashed bread and cans rolling across the yard???
I wish all bag boys/men were like your favorite guy. We do most of our grocery shopping at Wal-Mart because most of the actual grocery stores are small & seem to be going out of business since we got the second SuperCenter here. I do like two certain grocery stores though, I get most of my pantry goods from one because it's cheaper there, and the other always doubles coupons up to $1.
And yes, I've felt the fury of broken eggs & smashed bread... The cans rolling across the yard used to happen all the time because my daughter used to try to carry more than she should, & would drop everything. I tell the cashier at Wal-Mart, where we get our eggs usually, not to put anything in with the eggs. I don't care if that means more bags when we get home, I HATE broken eggs. The smashed bread isn't that big of a deal anymore, my hubby like smashed bread, so I eat the not-so-smashed parts of the loaf & let him have the rest. It works out perfectly for us.
