Got an Answer?
I see women (always bloody women) open punnets of strawberries or blueberries, give a handful to their kids and put the punnet back on the shelves. even if I'm far away I'll yell out to them that they should pay for it. No fu**s given if I embarrass them, why should anyone buy that particular one and get less than what thy pay for. Shits me to tears.
No way. But it seems to be the done thing in my local supermarket. A bit of planning ahead people. The adults seem worse than the kids.
I have given my kids food from packets I'm buying. I always keep the wrappers & pay for it. Now my kids are older, i tell them they have to wait until it gets 'beeped'. My local supermarket gives them a slice of smily fritz. The fruit & veg person heard me explaining to my kids, about selecting food in a package they can eat, beacuse we need to pay for it (the store, workers & farmers etc), he was happy if my kids wanted to eat a loose mushroom. Some of the bigger supermarkets even have a selection of fruit for kids to choose & eat. So, I believe it's ok if you pay for the item.
I personally think it is wrong. But to each his own. When my kids were young, I always brought a snack along with us. For those of you who sneak a grape or two or munch on an apple, my question is how do you do that without washing it first? I always think of how many people have touched the fruit/veg before I get to them. I have to wash everything first before we eat it.
I do it ... Always apologise at pay- they've never said anything less than no worries I totally get it.
But I'm also a grape theif🙈🙊 I'll always have one or two before I get to the counter
I let mine. Packets of cruskits or red apples, every time. We pay for the whole box of biscuits. Then I take an extra apple for the weight and leave it behind after the weigh and pay. No harm no foul.
My husband does the shopping with the toddler and her always lets her grab something! It is always fruit though and he only lets her have the fruit in prepackaged bags that is paid for by barcode not by weight, I really dont see the big deal. It is paid for, they are always giving away free food anyway and there is so much more wastage than a single apple been eaten by a toddler!
Depends on what the product is and whether it's a set price or priced on weight. My darling son likes to grab apples and try and eat them while we're shopping. I've ended up going in with them grabbing a small selection of "trolley food" paying for it then leaving and coming back in straight away lol. Because I keep my receipt and keep that trolley food bag away from the rest of the groceries I've never had an issue
As long as you pay for it.
