I got home from shopping one day to unpack and find she'd put a block of chocolate (yes,m I was going to sit and eat the whole thing, what of it?) in with a hot chicken!
needless to say the choccy had melted and smelled like greasy meat.
I had to eat a frigging banana

If you wanted it separate that's cool, you have every right to ask, but the killing babies part was ott IMO. The checkout operator was probably mortified.

I don't think what you said was ott then again I tend to say things how they are and people in my life either deal with it or don't be in my life check out people absolutely irritate the crap out of me when I'm pregnant and if there doing something wrong I'll gladely make sure they know I the other day walked into big w and had 2 people at the tv section playing thumbsies while I patiently stood there waiting to be served it was obvious I wasent just standing there to see there thumb show so I loudly said when you two are done playing thumbsies did you want to serve me and they stood there and thought I was joking and had a laugh about it till they realized I was being serious didn't even have what I needed so either way it was a waste!

I dont think you should bother worrying about it all , I watch the checkout assistants like hawks when they are packing my grocerys and alot of the time they put stuff like cold meats in with dry goods because they either dont care or dont know.I have also taken foods back to the shops because they have been packed in with dry goods and defrosted by the time i get around to unpacking them ( I sometimes just chuck the cold stuff in the fridge then go back out) and I have never had a problem as it is up to them to pack the foods appropriately.

she probably thought she was doing the right thing by putting all the cold stuff together.
I actually like putting my milk and frozen stuff in the same blue (insulated) bag as my meat to keep it cold on the way home. -- **note ..I never put 'leaky' chicken or meat in my trolley -- the fact that is had a 'leak' means air is getting in, plus bacteria etc etc. ..:=blerghhhh - probably more risk of you getting sick from the inproperly sealed chicken.
Personally..I consider the 'killing unborn babies' thing OTT...and yep - if I was a teen "cringe worthy".
Asking for you meat to be placed in a different bag - fine.

It is definitely frustrating when stuff like that happens, but I tend to err on the side of 'gentle' with checkout staff.
I figure, most of them are about 14 or 15 - while they have probably been 'trained' to pack items appropriately, it is likely that they just don't fully understand the risk, or they forgot.
People in general are so unbelievably rude to checkout girls ... When I worked as a checkout operator I once had a hard time finding the right packet of cigarettes for a customer. He told me in no uncertain terms that I was completely worthless and my mother should have just had an abortion. I was 14.
These days, I go out of my way to speak respectfully to people who serve me, regardless of whether they have done something annoying, because I know that their day has no doubt been a helluva lot worse than mine and I would never want to be the straw that broke the camel's back.
So yeah, while it was a crappy thing for the checkout girl to do, I sort of understand why your DD might have been a bit embarrassed.

Yep, way OTT!
You could have said something nicer.
My mum works in the supermarket and they are told they will get in big trouble for using to many bags. At one point they only gave them do many bags per shift!!
Poor girl was probably trying not to cry or she just really didn't care about her 200th ****y customer for the day.
Leaky chicken probably shouldn't have been brought in the first place. If you are going to be that paranoid then you probably wouldn't be eating the double wrapped ham, it's not going to get into the juice and the butter is in a container.
The killing babies part was totally unnecessary.
