Remember back when I asked readers whether they thought it was acceptable to eat your groceries in the store before you paid for them?
Check out this comment from Angela C.:
I work as a cashier for the world's #1 retailer, and I see some things that people do that would make you want to douse your hands and shopping baskets in hand sanitizer. Case in point: there is a homeless man who brings a live turkey into the store with him sometimes, and has it sitting in the child's seat of his basket. I live in a major metropolitan area so this is not a normal thing, at all. I see people with their dogs and kittens. Customers who leave the bathroom without washing their hands. I could go on but I won't. Suffice it to say, it might be better for those more inclined to eat at the store to wait till they get home and wash their hands first.
My kids don't ask to eat food in the store because they know I won't let them, but believe me, if they ever ask, I will now say "Are you kidding? For all we know the last person to touch this food was carrying his pet turkey around with those hands."
Perhaps we could make Angela's story go viral, and then everyone would be AFRAID to eat in the grocery store. A moral victory! Without even ruffling any feathers.
