So this is a little strange, but I use my Ipad in the grocery store.  Its not a mini, just a Ipad 2.  The reason, I like Grocery IQ app, and my phone sucks and wont update past 2.1 droid. And until I upgrade I am stuck with that. So someone in the store, actually whispered, "she is so rude using her Ipad" I never thought I was being "rude" , its not like I was holding her up or facebooking in the isle. It helps me save money for my family knowing what I spend in the store. I went online, and there was a forum! In the forum was the same discussion , the person was complaining on how rude it was and that its just a show off that people use thier Ipad in public, like a grocery store. Thats not what I am doing, I am the most humble person, I just happen to have an Ipad.   Am I missing something here??? How would you feel if you saw me , in the isles using my Ipad??

 I don't think it's rude...isn't that why they put those little squares on things...for you "scan" and find a coupon code?  As long as you aren't holding up the checkout line because you are posting to a friend, you aren't being rude.  Just ignore it.

I laughed because everytime I see someone talking on their phone, in Walmart, I always make a comment to my hubby..."how come they can get service in here and we can't?!"  LOL

My boss bring his ipad everywhere.  He puts his grocery list on it.  I don't think it's rude.  I think people are jealous.

I've had people say I was rude for reading labels on food. I've also had somebody yell at his SO "oh look at her she's actually reading labels how lame is that?" I felt like yelling back "oh look at him he's completely ignorant about what is in his food and food allergies!"

the point I was trying to make is some seem to think anything they don't do is rude and it's just not true.

 I can't even imagine someone saying anything like that.  Even if you are facebooking in the aisle...who cares as long as you're not holding up the line...

I don't see how it is rude. How are you hurting?

I don't think it's rude. I have an app on my phone to make a grocery list and I've used it sometimes. She's probably just jealous because she doesn't have one. Some people are just bitter and grouchy no matter what you do. I would just ignore it.

It's not rude at all. They are just jealous they don't have one. Keep using your iPad wherever and whenever you want.
