    I do it to for my kids if they are making a fuss. We used to get customers who used to use our supermarket as a free feed and dump the packets and cans all over the shop and it is those ppl who wreck it for the honest folk.

    Fair enough, looks like lots of people do it and lots of people don't mind :-) I guess I just sort of saw it as taking something before it belonged to you. But of the shopping centre staff don't care, why should I :-)

    omg - i am literally PMSL. can't win, can i?

    yes - every single shopping trip i have at least 2 things that have been opened before i get to the check out.
    At least i'm not giving them fruit (unless its from a closed-container that comes with a specific price, rather than per/kg price) - cause that would be theft.


    and chances are, despite all that food, i was still the person with a screaming toddler or hyperactive school aged child and next time i go shopping, i'm gonna bloody enjoy myself.
    Lol oh so true. Lol

    No worries - from now on I won't post anything for fear of it offending someone.

    Very very occasionally i will open something for the kids while we are still shopping. usually i grab a pack of the set price beans (like they are packaged and are $3 for 300grams) so not stealing stuff that hasn't been weighed and the kids enjoy them and i pay for them at the end.

    I guess i can see where OP is coming from and you never know if the person you see is actually going to pay for it at the end of if they are going to shove the packet back on the shelf.

    I don't think you've offended anyone? Certainly I'm not offended - I just do it an don't consider it rude.
