Your bagger didn't make a mistake. They are trained to pack that way. Put the gallon of milk in the same bag as the gallon of bleach. Bread and eggs always go at the bottom with all the canned goods on top of it. You get the idea! I should ask Poo about my theory. He bagged when he was a kid for about two weeks. Then he quit. Can't say that I blame him. Middle of a really cold winter and he was the only one the manager would send out to bring in the carriages when the checkouts were slow. Freezing cold out and he had no mittens. His bare hands were touching the freezing metal handles. I finally bought him a pair after he quit.

I am such a thoughtful mother.

The first treatment for bleeding is to apply pressure to the wound. You can only keep a finger(s) on the wound for so long. I have had success with tightly wrapping a bandaid or two on the wound. I like the fabric band-aids. They stick really well.

Yes. The fabric ones have worked best so far. The plastic ones leak.

I am on two blood thinners. So that made it a lot more difficult to stop the bleeding. You should see my arms. I have mark and blue backs (childrenese) all over my two arms. I look like I am the victim of severe domestic abuse. I have to even apply heavy pressure when I get an injection.

I'm on 2 daily baby aspirin, along with the Dutoprol for high blood pressure. A friend almost bled out, he was on Coumadin, and one of his cats scratched him.

My Grandfather used to use a spider web to stop bleeding in small cuts.

He just twirled his cut finger in the web and instant bandage.

He still had ten fingers when he died so I guess it didn't hurt him any!

I rarely have a problem with my bags being bagged incorrectly.

I make it a point to unload my cart so that like items are bagged together, saving the produce and bread for last.

I keep the eggs, bread and produce in the smaller top basket and unload them last so I can keep them separate from all the hard stuff.

As I transfer filled bags back into my cart, I keep an eye on what goes where so my tender items are safe from smashing.

Shrek had a knife cut on his finger that kept opening up, even with super glue. Now that it's stopped (this was a few days ago) I found the butterfly closures I knew I had.

Those would be handy to have. I don't understand the super glue fix...doesn't it leave a 'ridge' type thing on the skin...? Or does it get absorbed after a while? Just curious.
