    Default At the check-out ...

    Do you comment on other peoples grocery bill?

    I detest grocery shopping so put it off until the family complains as a result end up with a big grocery shop and strangers lined up after me always seem to comment on my bill

    Today it was just over $400, which for 5 people and 2 pets for 2-3 weeks (longer if I can stretch it) I thought was pretty good. Yet the woman behind me felt the need to repeat the total (not quietly) and kept going on about how much I spent. As usual I felt I had to defend my spend ... but just once I would love to have a quick response to shut them up nicely ... lol.

    If you are on the receiving end of these sorts of comments ... what do you say? Or do you just smile and ignore?

    Turn around and tell them you run a brothel and that's how much it costs to feed everyone for the week. I'm sure it'll shut them up quick smart haha :-)

    No definitely not, what bad manners. Occasionally I will spy something on the belt and go 'oh yummy!', which is probably just as bad, but I can't help it it just pops out. I do love my food! Lol

    How terribly rude!! No, I don't comment. Like pp's, I do however look at what others are buying and imagine what they are having for dinner etc... I'm a little piggy.

    I don't comment on others bill cause its rude. No one has commented on our bill which I'm surprised at considering its usually on the high side with 6 and animals.

    If anyone dared try saying anything though you know me and my wit lol.

    Wow I think that's rude too! You should say you have 5 foster children, or give half to charity or something! Not that you should have to lie but they shouldn't be making you feel bad about it!

    Dp and I have commented once a couple weeks ago, but it was a compliment with how she managed to have such a cheap bill for how much she was buying (well we didn't really say much but she seemed happy lol). I didn't mean to say something anyway it popped out. Usually dp and I are too busy debating how much ours will cost (he always wins -___-)

    Lol I don't think I've ever noticed anyone else's bill.. I sometimes notice what they are buying, but mainly if they buy like 6 x 12 packs of coke, and then I just assume they're having a party.
