Dirty look at the supermarket bc of coupons?

anyone experienc this?i never really was into coupons but i recently got into being more organized with them and i was very excited today that i bought a significant amount with my coupons. so i am paying and the lady is scanning my coupons and there is technical difficulties and this lady behind me gave me a dirty look like i should not be wasting her time by using coupons. well i felt so good after i left because i saved enough for me to go under my budget that i had. so to anyone that uses coupons and if you get dirty looks that is a good sign that means you are saving yourself a bunch of money and they are just jealous. lol

  • I have used coupons for years and got my fair share of dirty looks. Even worse was when I used to get my SILs WIC checks for her and do 3-4 at one time. People are in a hurry all the time now and if you hold them up they are offended. With the new extreme couponing shows though I get dirty looks using coupons even when there aren't technical difficulties.

  • They were probably in a rush. Don't worry about them! Congrats on the coupons, I really want to do that.

  • I think it's because there are some people who use coupons and try to get things they shouldn't. I hate getting in line behind someone who has 502 coupons and half of them are expired. For the most part though, it's not a big deal. Congrats on your savings!

  • It's jsut because coupons take time to deal with and can be a pain in the butt- especially if people trying to use them have the wrong size item or whatever...

    good for you for finding some you could/would use though- I rarely find any that I would even use!

  • yeah i am not worried. i am going to so continue. @mompam, you should so do it. its really really fun. i put the ones i was going to use in an excel program. didn;t ge to use all but i did use my fair amount. i still have some research to do from the last two sundays and some coupn printing at home so my next shopping trip should even be better. this is why i use self check out because the other lanes the people are always in a rush. lol
