There are two chain grocery stores that you can go to here on Marco Island. One is Winn-Dixie and the other is Publix. We often go to the Winn-Dixie because the Publix is really crowded. Maybe this is the reason why. As we approached the Winn-Dixie checkout, I noticed that the bagger was busily removing the gum from her mouth, saving it in one of her hands and then putting it back in her mouth. Then she continued to bag groceries. Yuck. The cashier was using her knot of hair as a receptacle for the pen she handed to customers to sign credit card receipts. Yuck again. I used my own pen and washed off a bunch of stuff that the bagger touched. It’s Publix for us even though it’s crowded.
fastidious – Possessing or displaying careful, meticulous attention to detail.
I expected the bagger and cashier at Winn-Dixie to be fastidious in their hygiene.
