The sunny morning turned into a cloudy morning as I headed out to the commissary. I got there without any major traffic jams which was nice. Things were done a little differently at the gate today. More barriers were up to drive around and the guards scanned our ID's.
Some renovations going on at the commissary. They are putting in new freezers down at one end and enlarging the whole commissary. Not really disruptive yet. Just two aisles got moved and the entrance is down at the other end. I had to get a lot of stuff so couldn't go through the fast checkout but there weren't many people and I didn't have any line to wait on at all. Some of the cashiers were sitting there with no customers. That is pretty rare!!!
The cashiers at the commissary only scan the prices. There are baggers who bag and bring your stuff to the car and only work for tips. I always have the baggers just put my stuff back in the grocery cart and bring my own groceries to the car myself. I ask them to put the bags in my cart because they use other carts to bring the groceries to the car. I park away from other cars and like to load my own. I still tip the baggers though.
I have green canvas bags to use and one of them is insulated for the cold stuff. I always put all the cold stuff together so they can easily put it all in the insulated bag. You wouldn't think it would be so hard for them to put the cold stuff in this bag, but they hardly ever do and today they didn't either. The cold stuff was spread out in the other bags and the insulated one had cans and cereal in it. They also put the bags in the wrong cart which I didn't notice until I had given them their tip. When I said again that I wanted to bring my stuff to the car myself they just watched me load my cart again and repack everything. I was so annoyed I wanted to ask for my tip back. See I'm not always happy and can get annoyed too!!! :-) In the grand scheme of things this was no big deal and I was happy to leave them to their bagging, glad that it wasn't my job.
The cloudy morning has now turned into a rainy afternoon. Just a light rain now but a lot more is supposed to be on the way tonight and tomorrow.
I haven't started to read A Walk Across America yet because I have to get a couple of library books read, but I'll be reading it soon.
As usual I have a few things to do around the house this afternoon and later will take some time to knit and read.
Hope all is well in your part of the world.
