    I don't stand and wait to be checked - if they are not ready or too busy too bad

    I wouldn't have waited for her as I only stop if they ask me to.

    I certainly would not wait for them to finish talking.
    This... with 2 kids normally screaming because they hate the pram that day or i took something off them that they grabbed off a shelf or what not, im not going to waste my time standing around waiting for them to finish what they are doing to check my bags

    I've never had anyone touch my pram, I'd be annoyed at that alone!

    I have had the same one continuously read my receipts (like, for 2 mins at least), if i have another bag from another store, then she always wants me to lift up the sheet covering baby, then to lift the baby from sleeping position so she can inspect my EMPTY bl@@dy basket. she could see baby was sleeping, but nooooo, she was wanting me to lift him into a sitting position so she can see. next time i'll just walk off and tell her where to stick her inspection. seriously, i don't mind them looking, but this one woman always take it to extremes. when i see her at one of the checkouts, i refuse to go to hers.

    I used to work for BigW and JBHiFi and I can tell you, you have every right not to show them the inside of a bag, smaller than an A4 piece of paper...
    And they CANNOT touch anything of yours, whether it's on you or in a pram, trolley what have you..

    Though some people can never be pleased, I got In trouble once because at JB they stamp the receipt and a customer got angry because I couldn't put my hand in the bag to get the receipt...

    Hahahaha that made me giggle!

    I dont offer my bags either unless I am politely asked. Some of the ladies at our Big W, know me quite well and we've had many chats about all sorts of topics before. Yet they still ask me to check my bags and I am not worried about it.
    IF they were to obviously look me up and down a few times with a suspicious look on their face, I would say something like "Yes, I just put 12 pairs of Big W pants in that bag and half a dozen bra's in the other. Why are you looking at me like that? I thought this 'paying for goods' thing was just a joke?!"

    I don't understand why she just didn't ask "may I check your bags?" It would have saved time and frustration for both of you.

    I will pay $150 on groceries but steal $2 worth of lollies? I never say anything because I always know they are just doing their job

    Maybe I should have said 'don't move my sun shade forward, that's where I've stashed the 6 burner bbq I just knicked from the Outdoor Living dept'.
