    Germs/bacteria aside, the thought of having raw chicken juice on my groceries (pregnant or not!) is enough to send me loco

    Also I don't think you were a hormonal b**ch at all, overly precious yes, but not a b**ch.

    Wif I were the checkout girl, I probably would've come onto my safe place (so bub hub for me!) and had a vent about the customer who told me my bag packing would kill unborn babies.

    So yes, I think you were OTT and if I was your daughter I would've been mortified.

    OP unless you were yelling at her, and talking down to her like she was a total moron, then I don't think you were in the wrong or OTT at all.
    I really don't understand why so many people are saying that the unborn baby comment was OTT. It is the truth. It is also possible that the checkout chick didn't know the risks, and now knowing the risks will be more vigilant in her packing of raw meats.
    And in regards to your DD OP, if I was 18 and my mum had said the same thing, I would have been mortified, but that is just because when you're that age anything that your parents do that is 'rocking the status quo' is enough to embarrass the spit out of you.

    Checkout chicks are people too...
    You have NO idea what you could have done to her after saying that it could kill unborn babies.
    Yes it may be truth (a possibility that *may* happen) but really... It was OTT...

    Sorry but I don't see how it was truth at all. The orange juice is sealed. The ham is sealed. Unless you plan on going home and licking the containers then I can't see it killing your unborn baby. I think that's really dramatic.

    yeah the killing unborn babies thing was way OTT.

    i would have just asked for it to be packed seperate and then told management so as not to make the girl feel awful.

    So when you pour yourself a drink to go with something you are eating, you wash your hands before you eat? Do you make sure that your foods have separate containment in your fridge, so that they don't come into contact with each other?
    Yes, causing the death of an unborn babe is the worst case scenario, but it is a possibility.

    The OP didn't yell at the checkout chick, didn't accuse the checkout chick of trying to kill her baby, she only stated the possible consequences of her actions.
    If the checkout chick was a teen, then chances are that she had no idea about the possible consequences.
    Personally, if I'd been a checkout chick as a teen, and someone had said this to me, I would have appologised profusely, repacked all the items and would have been grateful that someone had brought it to my attention.
