Talk to my wife about it. She's the one that give me the skunk eye when I'm idly standing by when groceries are piling up with a bagger nowhere in sight. Being a participant in the marriage continuation plan, I bag the groceries.
We grocery shop at Biggs/Remke and Kroger (with side trips to Whole Foods). Biggs isn't an issue because its self-bag. When we run into this kind of issue is when we do a big shopping trip at off-hour times. Kroger is usually staffed up at busy times but in off-hours, they may only have a couple lanes open and no baggers. And if we have a full cart, the checkout person has their hands full with ringing stuff up. A manager may get flagged down to bag, but more times than not, its just me standing there and I say "what the hell" and start bagging. I want to get in and get out and I don't want to wait around for someone to finally do their job and I'm not their QA.
