Grocery shopping not being this whole *ordeal* – I liked just you know, going and getting my stuff. (I am fully aware this is a repeat of last weeks rant.)
Now it’s hold off as long as possible, but get in and out as fast as you can, and pick the right time, and don’t forget the mask, and wipes for the basket/trolley since they might be out, and just be ready for everything you need to not be there, oh, and use self checkout except for the fact that you have too much for it, because you held out for so long.
My store is going to start marking the aisles one way, which is actually *great* and I couldn’t be happier about that. They’ve put up plexiglass at the customer service desk and the checkouts, which I also like – not so much for me, but for the folks working there.
They’re also doing early-bird-elderly hours, from 6-7, which works fine for me as even if I go before work, I’m never there before 7.
But, they’re now limiting entry to 20% of store capacity starting today. I don’t even know how many people that is. I mean, when I go, it’s rarely been crowded at all as far as I could tell, but were we near 20%? I had really been hoping to avoid the whole lining up just to get *inside* the store bit. (I don’t have an actual issue with it, I just have no idea what this is going to look like in practice.)
And the last little insult to injury… They’d prefer folks not bring the reusable bags for the time being. This is totally reasonable and rational, and I agree with it wholeheartedly. But guess who finally JUST got REALLY, REALLY GOOD about remembering not only to have the reusable bags in the car, but to actually bring them in the shop, too??? (Plus, they hold so much more than the plastic bags! I have come to love them so much!)
Yes, I am plotting out my next shopping trip this morning, why do you ask?
