  • Sometimes. That's why I got to the 24 hr store later at night like 11 pm so there is hardly anybody in the store.

  • ALL the time :/ I often look back and say sorry lol... I try to have it all sectioned by check so it can go faster....Some cashiers are REALLY fast at it...I love those people...I HATE when something is on my list and they say i cant have it and make me go back and get something different :/ IT IS ON THE LIIIIIIIIST lol...

  • I say, if they are who gives a rip? At least you are trying to get some healthy, wholesome food for your family. I use the self checkout at my store, so nobody even knows how I'm paying.. I think that's really helps with my self image.

  • Yeah. I think it's funny because when I clearly have a lot of baby food, I mean jars and jars people will still get behind me even though it's clear that there other lines open.

  • I used to..yes. Some people can be downright rude. But they just want to get out of the store themselves. If they are mad it is their problem. Lots of people are very supportive of it too. Just do your best to block it out and forget about it when you get out of the store. Be thankful for all the food you have for your family. It is a HUGE help.

  • The last time I had WIC was before my youngest was born. In Michigan they have a WIC debit card that you just swipe and go. I wish more places could have that option so mom's and mom's to be wouldn't have to feel uncomfortable using their services.

  • yes, im in michigan and we have the wic card- and i goto kroger usually to get my wic so they now can just run all the groceries through without seperating it. it seperates itself. i love it. and if ppl stare-or glare, i usually dont give a crap. if they dont like it or think im taking forever, then they can goto the other lanes if theyre in a hurry. =)
