Is it too much to ask for my groceries to be bagged correctly? Having worked various customer service jobs for several years, I'm not one to complain. I know people can't read minds and do exactly what I want. I think I'm pretty reasonable. I never say anything about having cleaning chemicals and food in the same bag or several cans and a gallon of milk in one flimsy plastic bag (which usually results in the bag breaking and me having to collect my food items off the ground).
What I cannot stand is raw meat being placed in the same bag as other types of food items, especially ones that are ready to eat. I don't know how many times I have found packages of raw beef or chicken in the same bag as chips, veggies, or bread.
I am the type of person who would rather let something slide than say something, not very confrontational. It takes a lot to get me to say something right then and there. So the one time I said anything, I caught the bagger about to put a package of raw chicken in the same bag as a head of lettuce. I asked her nicely if she could put them in separate bags and she gave me an attitude.
The last straw was this weekend. When I got home, I found that they had put 2 packs of gum and some dinner rolls in the same bag as a package of raw ground beef. One of the gum packages had puntured the ground beef which leaked all over everything else in the bag which I had to throw away.
Despite how mad I was, I didn't bother going back. I had so many groceries I didn't notice the offense as it took place. I shouldn't have to supervise them bagging my groceries anyways. That is their job, shouldn't they know better? I will never be back. That's a shame because they are so close to where I live. I will have to drive past it to go to another grocery store.
