    Grocery stores give me anxiety.

    You should go with a friend! I had a friend that couldn't go into stores alone, but with someone else she actually liked it.

    I find with Grocery stores or stores in general, I tend to become angry with one or more staff members that work at different ones and never return. That's how I Adult the situation. I also despise going through checkout lines where cashiers question whatever is being bought

    @Cib3rNaut I think this is the first time you've actually contributed something to a conversation!
    I'm impressed lol Do you mainly go through self check outs then? Also what kind of cashier would question your purchases lol not grocery stores :p

    If the store has self check outs I use them first, pending the object i'm taking out of the store is not oversized and needs to be maneuvered above the laser or is extremely heavy. I find almost all cashiers have some derogatory statement to make on something that has nothing to do with being friendly or social, it's just designed into their personalities as per applying for that type of job. Probably from being driven mad all day everyday by the numbers flashing in front of them.

    LOL @Cib3rNaut Not everyone that works cash is out to be a dick. True, lots are but they also have to put up with asshole customers all day from which there is no escape. I feel both sides here as I am also greatly annoyed by snotty cashiers/servers/baristas whatever. If I pay for a service I do not appreciate rude comments. But on the flip side I will defend an employee who is being berated by a bitch-ass customer over something stupid or not their fault. I think EVERYONE in every profession should try to not be a dick and have a little compassion, you never know what other people are going through, and everyone still has to work and make a living.

    That is true, there is an opposite side to everyone that no one could ever have the time to decompress and understand what is really going on. It is really the main fault of society itself, It takes too much time to learn anything about anyone to really solve any problems going on. I have just noticed a very high percentage of cashiers and some other professions to really attract these types of workers as per other professions having a wide variable of personalities. Not to be demeaning or otherwise with common similarities it almost seems there is a Profile to certain jobs that is filled using the same types of individuals.

    @Wrecky
    You realize that we're having a very related conversation? the psychology of people, personality types, and how each acts? this can be extended into professions too. Certain professions attract certain types.

    It's true. I would say education level and background are factors, but I will not say they are deciding factors. Personality types makes more sense overall.

    I am happy things like online shopping and home delivery now exist. If all else fails I just go at 10:30 PM.

    Going shopping right before the stores close or as they open is the baller way of shopping. Downside is that I have worked in retail before and as the employee it is by far the worst time had at the start or end of your shiftwork

    I try to do my grocery shopping on awkward days. Tuesday while on lunch at work. Thursday at 6pm. Times where most people are working, sleeping, eating, yet stores are still open. It cuts down on the lines and the staff generally seem to be less stressed.

    I've reverted to my european past and started shopping for food every single day, only very small amounts in price as well as kept inside the fridge. Seems to save almost all waste and also the low amounts of spoilage in food seem more healthy and have better vitamin content. You'd think it would be more expensive, turns out to be less with the amount of wasted groceries that end up being discarded

    I do something similar.
    I buy certain foods in bulk (including stuff I can freeze) to get a better price and buy fruits and vegetables in small quantities on my way home from work. Best of both worlds! :)

    I've been kinda disappointed with how stores in British Columbia are installing Liquor Isles and forgetting about everything else around them. It looks like a war zone everywhere else in the store yet the Wine section remains perfectly stocked constantly. I could never buy Wine in a grocery store, it seems somehow the opposite of what should be happening when food is quite costly to many people. Also kinda disturbing to see, nothing against drinking except all the bad outcomes

    This reminds me of when I heard a complaint about the CBC always playing hockey.
    The complaint came from someone who appreciated the imported/original programming.
    Too bad they couldn't see that profits from airing hockey were one of the major sources of income for the CBC.
    Most other programming was subsidized... So, bigger picture, hand that feeds, et cetera.
