I’ve got a new gripe with Gelsons. Their baggers are completely incompetent. Take this morning for example, I ran in to pick up a few things. I grabbed one of those little red carry baskets because I new I only needed a handful of stuff. When I got to the register I had one (1) bottle of Ice Tea, one (1) bottle of lemonade, one (1) bag of chips, and one (1) bottle of laundry detergent. 4 items. All easily carried in the one basket with one hand. Of course I was asked if I wanted paper or plastic, and as I usually do I chose paper. The main reason I ask for paper is because you can fit more stuff in it and it’s easier to carry. The cashier rings me up, I get to the end of the counter and there are four (4) paper bags sitting there, one item in each. WTF? So right in front of the bagger I emptied three of the bags into one, grabbed it and walked away leaving the 3 other empty bags sitting on the counter for the next customer who had an entire cart full of foodstuffs.
I mean, seriously, what is going on with this? When I was a freshman in highschool I worked at a grocery store and we had to watch about 48 hours worth of “this is how you pack a bag” videos. While I thought they were completely retarded at they time, maybe there weren’t because I now know that you could fit more than one item in a bag.
