I have a Vons near me that is my favorite grocery store. (Oh my God. How suburban mom is that?! I have a favorite GROCERY STORE.) It's reasonably close, it's got a decent produce aisle, carries CG's favorite beer, and stocks organic items. I even have a favorite check-out clerk who's always friendly, remembers Z's name and makes her smile. Z has started to ask for him by name when we pull in the parking lot.
They also employ developmentally disabled (DD) adults as baggers. I love this. I want to support this. I want Z to know DD adults and see them working in the community.
Unfortunately, our favorite check-out clerk now has a new DD bagger who ..... needs some work. He ALWAYS puts the eggs, bananas, tomatoes and avocados ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BAG. He routinely puts heavy things on the very top and overfills the bags. He's very sweet but I WRESTLE with him every time to keep my softer foods from being ruined.
At first I just ignored it. Then I got smart and put all the heavy things at the front of the food mover escalator thingy. He still managed to put the soft stuff on the bottom. Then, I started the wrestling match which is basically where I am now. I literally take things out of his hands or out of the bag and explain that they might get squashed on the bottom and need to be resting on top of the bag. He doesn't seem to get it and my favorite check-out dude doesn't say a word.
What else can I do??
