    You said in your OP that 99% of the time you get stuff delivered? So I guess it's a novelty for you?

    I've been food shopping with kids for 7 yrs and I can tell you that I couldn't give a fat jatz cracker what anyone else is doing. I'm to busy scanning my own kidlets and trying to focus on my list!

    This is surely one for the first world problems thread?

    For the record, no we don't but I don't find it the least bit rude if someone does.

    yep, I guess it is! :-) And hearing about how many ladies on here have kids who they have a hard time with, I wonder why more don't. I know they don't deliver to all areas, but I've seen a lot of posts that mention kids throwing tantrums or using bribery to calm the kids down (their words, not mine) and I can't see why people would choose that over home delivery.

    Anyway, that's all from this "smug" judgmental monster. I'm tired of belonging to a forum where I have to second guess everything I want to say, or have disclaimers so people don't misunderstand where I'm coming from. Adios!

    always.
    I still have morning sickness, and often get halfway through the shopping before feeling faint.
    DD often has a squeeze yoghurt to keep her happy around the shop.
    Noones ever had a problem with it.

    honestly...it aint rocket science.

    If you come in and say..I dont do this and I think its rude..


    then people are going to get antsy.

    You could come in and say..hey girls, and guys...I dont usually do this but have seen a few mums do it , and I am just wondering if you could explain it to me?

    I know it's hard not to take things personally, but people disagreeing with you doesn't equal hostility, nor does it mean you need to leave the forum. Sometimes it means that you get to pop your feet in someone elses shoes, you gain some empathy and understanding of situations.

    I live on a farm, three hours away from civilisation, so home delivery isn't for me and mine

    Anyway, hope you stick around.

    My local woolies has a sign near the choccy milks saying please pay before you open we have been going there for a yr and always had one while shopping with no issue. I think because so many people.must do it then use the self serve it stuffs up and pulls staff away from registers to fix but i will honour there sign dd will live im sure haha.
    Op, your taking this all way to personally just because not everyone agrees its rude, did you honestly expect a forum full of woman to all agree?

    I personally don't open anything before it goes through the checkout, but that being said, I really don't give a rats what other people do.

    No, I was too busy scanning items. There are security staff for that sort of thing.

    I certainly don't watch what people are doing when I'm a customer either.
