Who'd say no?
with that attitude.
pack their own bag?!
unless i actually did need help, which i probably wouldn't
"Hi! Would you like me to do this unnecessary manual labour which I would have absolutely no problem doing for you?"
"No thanks, I'd rather do it myself!"
then make a prat of myself fumbling with the bags and dropping things etc etc.
then they just go ahead and start packing the rest in a new bag anyway! whats with that?
that they try to get it in as few as possible.
i always pack my own unless they just do it without asking. my manners always get the better of me.
standing there watching someone do exactly what I could be doing while I do bugger all. It's just a bit rude.
It's totally ludicrous, like those guys in scummy club/Wetherspoons toilets trying to help you wash your hands.
if the empty bags get stuck together, and while you're trying to separate them, you realise that all your stuff's gone through, so you've got to stop struggling and get your money out, so you pay, but you still haven't finished packing, then before you know it, the next person's shopping is piling up next to you while they try to squeeze into the small space between the two tills at the end, every now and then muttering disapprovingly as they pack their own bags, just to let you know that YOU'RE A RETARD :'(
happens to the bag packing person while you stand tehre looking like a plank, it's better?
and 2. In my experience, the "bag packing person" has always been the "checkout person", thus that would never be an issue.
I just don't get it.
Also: don't play with your snake at the till, dirty boy.
I'd look cool. I'd maybe even roll my eyes knowingly in the direction of the person behind me in the queue.
supermarket bags are a nightmare to pack.
*nightmare = mild annoyance.
when I got called over to tills to pack bags for somebody. STOP IT!
after struggling for about a minute to detach the bag from the bag-clod: fair enough.
A minute later the security guard came over and was like "should'ave packed his own fuckin' bag. Just tell them to pack their own fuckin bags" in a very-obviously-because-he-waz-black way
anyone who needlessly bothers me when I have earphones in. I don't want a conversation. Unless I'm on fire, leave me alone.
their organisational skills are rubbish...they never put all the fridge stuff together etc. etc.
Because fistly, they usually ask in a tone that suggests they'd much rather you did it yourself, but are required to offer, and secondly because they'd probably put the milk on top of the eggs, hide the chocolate bar you bought for eating on the way home right at the bottom of an unknown bag and put all the heaviest items in one bag, that probably aleady has a little tear in it.
they dont care, so will just shove stuff in.
i have a system.
if you're so thick that your job is asking that question, then you're not gonna be clever enough to do a good job of it
if you're that stupid, you're probably going to get a lot of bag-packing practice in in your lifetime.
yesterday. I bought a ploughmans sandwich, some shell on prawns, a pack of 5 doughnuts and a bottle of water. And the guy actually asked me "do you need any help packing your bags?".
I felt like saying "yes" then when he started, asking him if he needed any help. But instead I just did it myself and wondered what the world was coming to.
yesterday. I bought 4 rolls of ultra-absorbent kitchen paper, 4 baking potatoes, a bottle of Reggae Reggae sauce and some lettuce. And the woman actually asked me "Do you need any help packing your bags?". I said yes :)
the most mundane Ready Steady Cook ever.
if I was the other contestant.
Alas, I suspect that they would never allow it to happen :(
I always pack my own bags and then do it in the most incompetent way imaginable.
what is wrong with you?!?!?!?!?
I always thought it was just an automatic thing they had to say, and you were only supposed to take them up on the offer if you were elderly or disabled.
