The second time: Two days ago I went to Target at night to get some gifts for my son's birthday the next day. I go to check out and I start loading things as they are being scanned. Same story, I go to pay and she continues to put stuff in the cart (I think). As I get my reciept, the next shift cashier takes over and my girl walks away. I check the little counter at the end of the check stand and everything is packed up. I go out in the dark parking lot (9:00 pm) and hurry to my car with my keys. I throw everything in the back seat and go home. As I unload the bags I go through and there is a bag missing again! I searched everywhere because I don't want to look dumb if it rolled to the back of my van while driving home. I yell to my husband that I have to go back to Target, and leave. I check the parking lot for my cart and it is gone I talk to the "cart guy" and he hasn't seen anything. I talk to customer service and the new shift checker (who doesn't remember me from five minutes ago) and no one saw an extra bag of stuff. Here's what I think happened : I think she must have put the bag under the cart when I was paying. I was in a hurry and it was dark and I didn't look under the cart because I didn't put anything there! I was very bitter this time because I know someone took it when they saw it in the parking lot.
My vent: Ladies, what is the deal, do you bag and tell them not to touch your stuff. Do you look like a snob and make them do it and then check their work right in front of them? Most of the time I'm trying to keep my kids for opening up the candy in the check stand instead of keeping track of what the checker is doing. I don't know, I'm sure now that I have typed this out I sound psycho, but that is what venting is about. Maybe this random stuff only happens to me.
Just a note: I have liberty to say what I want about checkers, because I worked retail for ten years:)
