I have a problem with grocery store baggers. Not the baggers themselves but a practice of theirs. I usually take Emma to the store with me when I shop. She sits in the kid seat in the front of the buggy.
When I go to check out, I take her out of the seat and hold her with me. However, when I take my huge buggy of groceries out to the car I need to put my child back in the kid seat so I can actually steer the buggy. However, I can't because EVERY, SINGLE TIME they have filled that area with groceries! WHY?
I obviously have a child in my arms, that is obviously a child seat! There are pictures all over it telling me how to put my child in there, how to watch her and what not to do. There are no pictures of eggs or bread telling people that this area is also reserved specifically for delicate items. So why are they always putting them there so I can't use the seat for its intended purpose--a child seat?
I have to stand there, child in arms, using one hand to toss groceries out of the area, and rearranging the seat so I can put her back in there!
Why can't they leave that area when they obviously see I have a child?
And don't suggest I keep the buggy she is in--they won't let me. I've been through that.
If I don't catch them ahead of time and tell them to leave it free, I have to unload the seat myself. It's not a huge deal to have to tell them but why is it standard to fill that area when the customer has a child with them?
