So today whilst buying steak for dinner I thought I would voice my query. It went something like this:
(this was just after she had inquired as to whether I would like a plastic bag and I had said 'Yes').
Me: Sooooo.....I've just been sort of wondering....how it is that Supermarkets are getting around this - aren't you supposed to put Raw Meats in a separate plastic bag? Because I used to be a Mystery Shopper (check out girl became VERY noticeably visibly nervous at this point) and that was one of the things we had to check for...
Visibly Nervous Checkout Girl: Uhhhhhh,.... I don't know, uhhhhhh.....
It was QUITE enjoyable to watch.
However I believe that quite possibly responding to a random checkout person's attempts to engage in overly zealous unnatural conversation with mirrored crazy person enthusiasm might also have the same effect. Quite possibly.
PS - In the end I had to take the meat back cos it STUNK and was clearly rotten - Chris said I had to do it because I am better at being mean, nasty and rude to people than him : P
