    I never said it was ok to treat a checkout chick like sh1t.
    The OP stated what she had said. From other posts the OP has made, I assume that she didn't say it with malice or aggression (she has never appeared to be anything but a kind and caring individual), but said it in a way that was informing the checkout chick that she needed to think about how she was packing the bags.
    Not all criticism is bad. Sometimes it teaches us a better/safer way to do things.

    Its a matter of opinion whether this is a better way to pack things. To me, its being precious, OTT and anal not to mention using plastic bags unecessarily.

    How are they meant to guess that you want possible leaky items in separate bags?

    I'm obviously at the other end of the scale. I ask for it all to be lumped in the same bag - meat, veg, everything. I can't stand coming home with extra plastic bags.

    Check out operators are just there doing a job, a boring, repetitive, low paid job. I feel a bit sorry for her.

    Me too. I don't like using unnecessary plastic. Plus as someone else mentioned, nothings clean at the supermarket.

    *gets up on high horse* well I actually recycle my old paper towels and, once dried, fashion them into a bag shaped basket. Then I collect the poo in that. Once thats done, I leave it to dry and then crush it all up and add it to my garden. Fabulous!

    ...do I dare add an eyeroll? ...I do!

    Sorry, OP - I think it was a little OTT too - but you have a very good excuse on the hormonal front!

    What you have written that you said comes across as a little finger wagging to me. I think you're perfectly within your rights to ask for it in a different bag, but to my mind a nicely said "Excuse me - could you please put the meat in a separate bag, as the containers are leaky?" or something like that - all with a smile - would suffice.

    The bit about unborn babies seems a bit dramatic, and I can imagine that to a teenager that would be a potential (hopefully secret) eye roll moment.

    I remember as a teenager that as soon as my mum said anything bordering on dramatic/ exaggerated it would be instant switch off for me. The eye roll would emerge, and I'd usually say something like "Ugh. You are SO melodramatic." And then flounce off (UN-melodramatically, of course) to my room.

    It's not necessarily that it didn't contain any truth - just that it sounded as if it was said in a way for maximum dramatic effect!

    And this is going way off topic.. but... erm... is it not okay to put poo in a bin? What else do you do with your nappy sacks? Or cat litter tray stuff (bagged up first)? Sorry... one for a different thread maybe!
