Don't be THAT guy in the supermarket
Grocery shopping is something we all have to do, seemingly all at the same time. Here’s how to make the experience better for everyone involved.
Leaving your trolley in the car park
Leaving your trolley in the car park rather than walking it back to the trolley return station is not just lazy. It’s downright annoying for anyone who thinks they’re about to pull into a parking spot only to discover there’s an empty shopping trolley in the way, not to mention infuriating for anyone who returns to discover their car is scratched thanks to a stray shopping trolley. So it’s not surprising that 72 percent of responders in Treadmill Review’s survey of supermarket etiquette said leaving your trolley in the car park is a big no-no. Instead of spreading ill-will, spread joy. Here are 14 simple acts of kindness you can do in two minutes or less.
Leaving your trolley in the line while you grab another item
Even more universally detested than leaving your shopping trolley in the parking lot is leaving your shopping trolley in the checkout line while you grab another item. That’s a move that 80 percent of shoppers polled consider rude. So please do your best to finish all your shopping before lining up to check out. And whatever you do, don’t line-up-and-leave strategically to save time – everyone’s onto you. Think you always display exemplary behaviour? Here are 7 real-world situations to gauge how good your manners are.
