I use reusable grocery bags. I'm sure many of you do too. Why do I feel that the stores I shop at are baffled by them?
Does anyone else feel this way?
Checkers ask me if I want certain items in the bags. "No, just pack them like normal bags." Then they ask me how many items they can put in the bag. "You can stuff them pretty full. They're pretty sturdy." They make a big deal unfolding them. Basically, it's as if they don't know what to do with them. One lady totally tried ignoring them once. Let's do a diagram. It will be fun.
I'm in the white coat and pig tails (obviously). The jump roper is the checker. The green backpack represents my bags. The pencil and blue and pink scribbles are the stuff I'm buying. The long brown rectangle is the conveyer belt, the short one at the top is where the credit card machine is. The red square is where the plastic bags are.
The checker totally keeps ignoring my bags and keeps reaching over them to grab the items, scan them, and put them in the plastic bags. I watch her do two items before saying anything. She acted like she had never seen them. (Thanks to the KidArt app on my phone.)
And what is the deal with checkers not even placing your bags in your shopping cart or even handing them to you anymore? Is this beyond them?
