I do this but it does not go on the floor. I master the art of putting food in my mouth by 3. I also hate it when people make a mess for the workers. Sorry but I am not cool with people beasting out on food so hard it goes all over the place no matter where they are. And yeh..I say something to the person doing it if they are near me.

Perhaps life in a bubble dome with no human contact would be preferable.

Guilty!

I have experienced panic attacks in grocery stores and malls (crazy- I know). I used to go to the all night store at 3 am so as to avoid the stress. But I can't leave my youngest daughter alone (oldest sibling moved away from home) so I have to wait til she goes to school.

But at 7:30am is a good time to go. But sometimes I have to prepare- something to drink and some crackers or something.

So for me, sorry to look so bad. But I do try to avoid busy times.

Would that same guy "slobbering" over his ice cream bar not offend you if he was outside the store? Who could you blame if you stepped in the pool of sugary mess? Would you run up to the man and berate him for eating an ice cream bar and having it drip down to the pavement?

Although aware of the occurrence, he left the bit of chocolate and ice cream on the floor to melt and create a little puddle of sugary slop. I carefully avoided the mess and warned the customer behind me to do the same; then after I notified the cashier of the problem so it could be attended to by an employee.

Is anybody else annoyed by people who cannot wait to get out of the store before tearing into some food purchase, and who then slobber ice cream, crumbs, juice, or whatever on the floor? What happened to at least attempting to not be an uncouth slob whilst out shopping for groceries and such, and especially not making a mess some poor employee needs to take the time to clean up, when the situation could be avoided by exercising just a little class and consideration for others?
I have one for you.

I'm in construction and years ago this guy comes and cleans the port-a-potty on the job site while eating his lunch at the same time.

Talk about nasty, he had the hose in one hand and his food in the other just cleaning and munching away.

I like to my grill with me when food shopping, I'll throw a couple of t-bones on and finish shopping while they cook...when they are almost finished I head over to the produce section and make me a salad to go with the steaks...I've only spilled the A-1 once...
