Eating food before getting to the checkout?

My BIL thinks eating a packet of crackers while shopping and then handing the empty packet over at checkout to scan is perfectly acceptable but I think this is a no-no.

What is your opinion?

Why is it a no-no? He is paying for it. It is not like he is stealing.

It is perfectly acceptable where I live. As long as it isn't a weighed item the store actually prefers you do it this way.

I tend do this with bottled water. Ill drink half of it while shopping and then have the cashier scan it at checkout.

We have a cafe that I buy things at first. As long as he is paying for it I don't see the big deal.

If you pay for it, it's fine.

We don't do it but whatever. I don't care if someone does.

Its not weighted so I don't see the issue. He's paying for it.

I think of all the germs on your hands - I wouldn't eat anything, anywhere without washing my hands first.

if you have not paid for it yet, it is not yours.  If you need a snack while you shop, run through the express line with your purchase and then carry on... or better yet, eat before you get there.
