    Why would grocery store employees be given a monetary tip for their customer services? Mike’s no bellhop at a hotel.

    I was asked this question all the time, we had to refuse probably due to legal reasons

    This lady appears who should be someone when she goes shopping so she doesn’t get lost or forgets her way around.

    Where I live, supermarket employees are fired if they accept tips.

    BTW, I order groceries online nowadays—much easier>

    35 years ago my daughter was a bagger. She dreaded the oldies because of the risk of wandering all over the park ( in Michigan winter weather ). I was younger then than she is now but I immediately instituted the rule of parking only at lampposts to narrow down the searches.

    I lost track of my car in a huge shopping mall parking lot once (long ago). Had to wait until the place closed so that the cars thinned out and I could find it. An adventure I’d just as soon not repeat.

    It has been more years than I can count since I have seen an employee helping someone out with groceries! When I broke my right elbow and had a sling, NO ONE would help me, not even at Costco with a 40 lb bag of dog food! I managed with leverage/rolling it and used the wheelbarrow when I got home, not easy!

    My first job was as a hostess at the restaurant where my mother worked. One couple was so pleased with the way I seated them that they gave me a tip! I asked my supervisor if it was OK; not only did she say it was OK, but congratulated me. A hostess had never gotten a tip there before!

    This grocery store has at least three lots? How big is it?

    I have become a better tipper since the pandemic because so many people took the government checks and now are unwilling to work. Help needed signs everywhere! And when I tip I always tell them thanks for showing up to work.

    I feel for Mike here. Rolling a supermarket cart over the smooth floors of the store is one thing – manoeuvring it over bumpy asphalt is quite another – that’s more like hard work.

    I take things literally. If someone asks if I need help, I always answer “no”. But, I might answer yes if someone asked if I would like some help.

    In Mexico all of the baggers ONLY get tips, they are not paid a salary. And according to them, they do quite well.

    I have a son works at a grocery store, worker’s not allowed to accept tips, they could get fired over. He worked at a lumber yard before that same way.

    I did this job in high school and we were not allowed to accept tips.

    I usually park in the same place. Otherwise I park near a pole.

    I lost my car in a Costco parking lot once. It was an electric blue convertible with the top down, so it was relatively easy to spot, but it still took the bag boy and me about a half hour to find it.

    I believe Kroger’s official policy for their pickup service is no tipping, but I do anyway. For one thing, I like handing out $2 bills.

    News flash…many places did not (maybe still do not) have to pay minimum wage, if it is reached with tips. At least one place I worked , if you wanted to STAY employed you declared enough, even if you had not received it. If you don’t tip, don’t say you are fighting the system, just admit you are CHEAP.

    Back in the day, stores all had packers & they took your stuff to the car & you tipped them.
