    Wow that's very rude!

    I've had the comment "you must be having a party" when I wasn't! . No need to comment on my purchases!!

    They must have been awfully close to hear the amount - I don't think I've ever heard/noticed the amount of the person in front of me...unless they start opening up their piggy bank and start counting it out ten cent pieces!
    Had a check out lady tell my kids they could have the biscuits I was buying for afternoon tea. Hell no! The kids don't need "sometimes" foods everyday. They were on sale and popped away for a "special" time or treat- she got the kids hopes up all in one statement and now they haven't stopped asking me. I've now quite openly told an old lady in the store that she was being rude and should be ashamed of herself.
    The lady in question in your circumstances didn't have the right to make you feel like that either.

    I have never & would never comment on how much someone spends on their
    Shopping I don't know how many people, how long it's to last ect ...
    Not my place

    I have thought in my head on occasion sh1t that was cheap for how much they bought & have been a little envious and thought geez wish I could afford to spend that much, but then again I have no idea about the circumstances

    She sure was. I had to ask her to step back so I could use the EFT machine ... lol.

    I usually shop online but didn't a few weeks ago so ended up with a huge shop (2 adults, 2 teens, 2 younger kids and a cat) and was on the receiving end of a similiar comment
    I tried to make a joke of it and said ".....well I've asked the kids to stop eating but as usual, they won't listen " which wasn't very funny but the best I could come up with at the time.

    What is wrong with people

    I think that's really rude OP. I'm usually too busy making sure my groceries are sorted into specific piles to even bother noticing the customer infront of me.
    None of her business what your amount comes to.

    No, I'm usually unpacking our stuff and talking to a child or generally chatting to others around us, saying hello and other small talk. Our bill is usually quite high, but we have a very picky cat and 2 dogs who go through one of those big bags of dry food between them in a fortnight along with raw food and bones and treats.

    How rude - the only time I would ever comment on someone's shopping, would be if I spied something super-yummy and asked them what aisle they found it in and rush off to get my own!!

    That's really rude. No I would never comment on other people's bills, but I imagine they might on mine as I shop less often too.
