I look at what other people have in their shopping carts...

If I'm on a long line with nothing to do but wait, I do pass time by checking out other people's carts. Is that so weird? I'm Puerto Rican-American and make a lot of Puerto Rican and Dominican foods. So my cart usually consists of root vegetables, citrus, beans, and other ingredients for the type of cuisine I like to cook. If I see an Indian family next to me, I'll look in their cart to see if I can figure out what they like to eat. Sometimes I'll see what they have and try to figure out what they are planning to make with it.

Sometimes I'll see a product in someone else's cart that I have a coupon for. If I know I'm not going to use it, I usually offer it to them.

I guess I'm just curious.

Well, as long as you aren't inspecting them for PA approved foods...lol

I can't say that I look in people's carts, but I do get curious when the person in front of me only has a few items, and they just look odd together.  lol

Sometimes I do that too, if I am that close to the register. Usually once I get to the belt, I start arranging my groceries in categories for ease of bagging lol. I'm a little neurotic at the grocery store.

I can honestly say I have never checked out what's in someone else's cart. I guess I just don't care what other people buy. when I'm in the checkout line I read all the magazine covers. If it's a slow line I read Soap Opera Digest (only the pages that talk about Days of Our Lives). Lol.
