Pumpkin, thanks for the great advices, I didn’t know how to do this without watching this tutorial. Now, can you bend and show how you pick apples from the aisle?

Masks dont protect you. Gloves dont protect you. Plexiglass is a joke. For real, the more I think about it, the more I realize these precautions are false protection. Maybe even an attempt to get more business if customers see everyone all masked up. None of it works, just think about it.

Yes we should all listen to the lady who can shop at a store called Organic Garage around civilized people who probably shop there. Tell her to reshoot this video at a no frills or food basic at 5pm and let's see if she feels the same wait. These people live in a bubble. My buddy was at food basics last week and told me a crazy lady refused to social distance and stood behind him n then behind her one of those typical self righteous types started telling her no to stand so close to him n the crazy lady started flipping out in the store and the self righteous lady started yelling right back n my buddy's jus thinking get me tf out of here. Most of us are us to this… Organic Garage lady probably has no idea what that's like smh.

I just get my staff to go to the luxury grocery store and deliver to me in my villa in Tahiti. I don’t even have to cook it. This epidemic isn’t that hard quit complaining and put ur energy into something positive like learning Arabic

Eamon O'Connell says:

What ever we touch in the store, we buy. We don't 'manhandle' anything anymore. So we are now very picky at what we're buying. No mostly frozen or canned.

The checker touches every item every shopper touches. That is where the virus is spread. It is the same as having every shopper before you touch your groceries.
