SO maybe the rules were different because of location? I've never known anyone to not help bag their own groceries. Even in some stores where teenagers stop in and help bag for tips I always help out.
You're right. In Jersey and even states bordering right along Jersey, there's a big difference in customer 'relations'. In fact, reading this thread initially bewildered me because if you don't start bagging your own groceries don't be surprised if you get a 'look'. Lots of attitude.

Free me, free yourself
A life of sacrifice controlled me
But those promises I made
No longer hold me
Mercurial more wayward by the hour
The shackles fall away I'm in your power



People throw rocks at things that shine.
