    Default Dare I start a *bag inspection* thread????

    I'm going to do it anyway! So we were just in BigW. DD was asleep in the pram, I had a couple of bags from other stores in under the pram and we were leaving BigW without buying anything. So I got to the lady on the door, who was fluffing around with a piece of hand held equipment (scanner or something) so I was just standing there waiting for her, with my handbag open, ready for her to do her thing. So she looked up, looked at me, looked in my bag then peered down under the pram, looked back at me (looked me up and down) and I was expecting her to ask me to show her what was in the bags under the pram but I hadn't got them out yet because they were a bit awkward. She then stood up straight after a second glance under the pram and flicked the sunshade of the pram forward and said "yea..." (Her tone was *I'm not really convinced your not dodgy but I'm not sure I can be bothered*). I was really quite p1ssed about this and said something to the effect of "Thank you for treating me with suspicion after I volunteered my bags and had to wait for your to pay attention to me, that's just lovely". Would this have annoyed you? BTW, I am wearing dark blue jeans, a pink tshirt/top, birkenstocks, my hair is in a pony tail. So not glamorous but also not all that shabby.

    I'm not sure..I take a don't offer don't refuse stance on this one but if I'm carrying the baby there is no way I'm bending down to move things around under my pram for them to see.

    I would have been more annoyed that she "judged" me- looked me up and down. Lady- the rich and the well dressed steal as well as the poor!

    I would have had a go at her for touching my pram. That's not on. If she wanted to look she could have asked you to open the hood. I don't let them touch my stuff. I will open, move things except a sleeping baby. But I am like that.

    I wouldn't have liked her touching the pram. Not that anybody touching my pram is a no-no but they're not supposed to touch your stuff.

    Otherwise, meh, not bothered if a Big W worker thinks I'm dodgy.

    I have no issue with showing my bags but I just felt that despite my transparency she still eyed me with suspicion, and she put her hands on my pram which I assume should be treated the same way a bag is....and the judgy look. I felt like saying "Go ahead and judge me for being a dag but I bet my shoes cost more than yours love"

    Oooh no way. No pram touching. That would make me very mad.

    I agree, I'd have no problem if she asked me to lift things/move things in my pram as long as it didn't disturb the little ones. I find pram touching more invasive than hands in a handbag. Not that I use a pram anymore though.
