On reflection, I have decided I don't want to be the critic. I want to be the critic's friend. They take friends along, so they can order more dishes. But the friends just get to eat and don't have to write it all up later.

So you're one of those people that crushes chips
I poke holes in all the meat packages to sniff them for freshness
What really drives me nuts is the teenage baggers that think it is perfectly fine to put bread/eggs etc. in the same bag as the heavy bottles and cans. This usually involves their lack of attention because they are more interested in talking to the cute teenage cashier than doing the job they get paid for. It doesn't seem to make a difference whether the cashier is female and the bagger male or vis versa.

You have to believe there was some training on how to bag. That they still do it wrong tells you how they feel about their job.

In the "Sad but True Department" SO directs the packing of our groceries. She handed an insulated freezer bag to a bagger telling him to put the perishables in the freezer bag. He started bagging and she stopped him because he was leaving perishables out of the freezer bag. When she scolded him he replied, "What are perishables?". Ouch!

So, the managers keep telling me. Brain dead is not a state to live life in. Don't get me started on the ability of cashiers to make change without the machine doing it for them. Really makes me wonder about "School Zones". I get them for elementry school kids. I'm on the fence about middle school/jr. high. If they don't get it by high school, come on, thats just population control!

I'd want to own a little comfortable cafe with outdoor patio dining out front. Inside would have sunroom dining with healthy plants and artsy water fountain...with a cuisine that was heart healthy, color saturated, unprocessed, nutrient-dense, and using locally grown fresh super foods whenever possible. Creative and flavorful with a focus on health. And local artwork on the walls inside. And a little stage for a talented local student musician to play soft guitar or flute or violin etc...on occasion.

That drives me crazy!!! I even keep my eggs, bread, crisps etc for last so I can pack it myself.
It also drives me nuts when they pack raw chicken and meats with dry products and I get home to find blood on cooked items.
It takes me hours to do my monthly shop now. I pack the items I buy in order of packing preference
This still doesn't always help!
