This evening I had the displeasure of waiting behind a slob who could not wait to get out of the store with his box of chocolate covered ice cream bars, so while in line he removed one from the box and began eating it. In the process, he slobbered a bit of chocolate and ice cream onto his shirt, then onto the floor. 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 must say I never understand why people eat inside the store.
I've seen people opening a pack of cookies (or potato chips or anything small) and eating them while going from aisle to aisle!
In a way, you eat something that is not yours - yet. And you show a lack of respect for other people, putting things in your mouth then touching stuff you may not take. Same for the person who drinks or eat something that may be spilled all over the place. Just rude.

OP, it sounds like you shouldn't go to the store anymore:
Do you shop at stores with homeless people in them?


... I meant my comment in that thread about please stay in your house and order everything from the internet. for the right price you can order your groceries from the internet and not see disgusting homeless people and messy people who just can't wait to get out of the store to eat.

personally I think the OP should learn how to spell before coming on a message forum and putting others down. Kind of makes one look foolish, moreso than they already do.

While I agree the bum smack thread posted a few days ago was offensive. I must say I agree with this poster. Its discusting watching someone scarf down a twinkie,chips,ice-cream etc...Notice you never see them chomping on an apple or bannana. Always junk food

Honestly, if you think about it...most things like apples and bananas need to be weighed prior to paying so that wouldn't really be possible to eat in line....I don't eat in line at the grocery but I will say I have once in awhile, picked my son up from an after school event on a busy day and had to run to the grocery prior to going home to prepare dinner. He has been known to grab something (typically popcorn chicken from the deli and a bottle of water) and eat a snack while I finish up my shopping. I always make sure he chooses something that we can scan the packaging so that we pay appropriately. I can see objecting to someone making a mess while in the grocery but other than the mess, who cares if they are eating or what they are eating? Why would it concern you?

Unless people are eating and burping or throwing food at me, I really don't care. It's between them and the store management. I do have understanding- sometimes people are super hungry, pregnant, diabetic, hypoglecemic, etc...it's not for me to judge.
