    I don't want some dam kid bagging my groceries. They end up packing them in six bags when one or two will suffice. It's the worst.

    When I was a kid they bagged them, put them in a crate, rolled it down the runners. You drove up, said your number and they loaded them in your car. you tipped the guy who did that.

    That is the store policy. Bring reusable bags and they will pack them heavy as you want. (at least where I am they will.

    I don't care about weight. I care about volume efficiency. My rule of thumb is two paper bags at most for most trips. Once a month or so I get four bags.

    I have to practically beg at target for them to pack more than one item in a bag. I don't care if all the cold items are together with non-cold items. I don't care if the meat is in a package with other things.

    Meat cannot be packed with anything else other than similar kinds of meat to prevent cross contamination.

    And you'll care about the weight of your bag when its contents are all over the parking lot.

    I'm with DX here. I bag my own groceries. I manage volume and space for a living, if you want to get right down to it (putting together large pallets of product; it's basically Tetris in real life). Cold in one bag, room temp in the other, and MAYBE a third bag because of weight, or maybe that jug o'milk doesn't quite fit but it has a handle, so we're good.

    And don't give me plastic bags. Paper bags are perfect, and I use those for my recycling. The plastic bags they give you are crap, anyways.

    Cross contamination. The way they package meat at target it actually had two seals. One for vapor and one for liquid. It's stupid to worry about cross contamination for meat like that.

    I never have problems in the parking lot. It only seems to be on he stairs at home. And only a couple times a year.

    I used to do the same thing. Now I stick to one cart as I go into the store, and if someone's walking in, they'll get it for the same price (in the hopes they pass it along just like Tim Horton's where some pay for the next dude).

    When I worked at a grocery store, there were still people that would carry your order to your vehicle upon request. Obviously the person is off doing other things.

    Calling this one a gear "grinder" might be overstating things a bit, it is more like a minor annoyance, but still....

    When a leaf stem or a maple seed gets stuck under the blade of the windshield wiper and you don't notice it when you first start up the car....then after you've been driving awhile and it starts to rain and you turn on the wipers and you get that streak across the middle of your field of vision every time the wiper goes back and forth....

    I get that the Cubs are the hot thing in Chicago right now. But as a Sox fan, I'm sick of anyone and everyone taking a sh*t on the Sox's 2005 WS Title...

    Several times today I've seen stories talk about how this is the first time in 71 years that the WS has involved Chicago. Nooooooo.... It's the 1st time the WS has involved the Cubs. The city got to host two WS games in '05. How about you clarify this in your blatant, bandwagon riding cash grab
    It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

    Go Cats!!! GO BLACKHAWKS!

    Cuck the Fubs... Let's Go WHITE SOX!!!

    Well it isnt new...remember how no one cared about the Blackhawks for years

    The problem is people outside of Chicago love the Cubs...most people in Chicago dont like the Sox

    Why do television play by play announcers have to describe every piece of the action like they're doing radio? I KNOW it's a groundball to SS. I KNOW the puck is in the corner. Maybe that's why I like British soccer announcers. They don't talk much.

    It's called "play by play" for a reason...

    Soccer announcers don't talk as much because its soccer, there isn't anything to talk about.

    Probably because they got their start in radio and do what comes naturally. Or in some cases (such as the Buffalo Sabres, or a lot of the college hockey productions), they simulcast the radio presentation with the picture, so you have two different audiences.

    Re: Gear Grinding 7: Really? This crap again?

    I hold a great deal of knowledge about a few of our processing systems. A user of one system asked for a trade record to be moved from a status she assigned in error to something else. When I reviewed the trade record in question I found that the record had never moved from its default status. There is no way to go from the errant status in the system to its default status. So I informed the user that she provided me with bad record data, and wrote into the log that we keep that I said as much to her. Today I received word from my boss that the manager of the woman with the error took offense to me reporting in the log that I was provided with bad data and could have been falsely assuming that the user was at fault for providing me bad data.

    tl;dr: When the ignorant hold sway over the knowledgeable...
    "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command." George Orwell, 1984

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.
