Groceries 101

Is there a course for grocery baggers to take? If not, there should be.

I have my three little cloth grocery bags that I take to the store every week and I get 5 cents off of my bill for each bag. Yay for me and my attempt at being environmentally conscious.

And every week, the rocket scientists who bag my groceries do the following:

Put 4 - half gallons of liquid (milk, Silk, OJ, & grape juice) in ONE bag... I am not a pack mule. I cannot lift it out of the cart to even put it in my car.

Since when is it ok to put bread on the bottom? Under boxes of yogurt, apples, and oatmeal?

Bananas should not be shoved in small places or between boxes - no wonder they're all ruined and bruised by the next day.

Do you need to put 10 cans in one bag? Again, this is too heavy and almost rips my arm off.

In the off chance that I need to buy a card at the grocery store, I avoid any wet spots on the check out belt - but thank you, grocery bagger for putting the frozen blueberries on top of it so by the time I get home, my envelope looks like I used it as a coaster.

No, I don't need your help to leisurely push the cart out to my car. However, I'm going to need you to come home with me to walk up 22 steps and carry these heavy bags that you over stuffed.
