Do you open up perishable products such as food in supermarket to smell? and then put it back when its not what you want??
saw people doing that and I think its PURE inconsiderate! :mad:

I don't do that, and haven't seen such happening (probably becos i dun go enough). But I really can't stand pp who select stuff from the cold section and then decide they don't want, and just happily leave those meats, etc in other sections (ie not in the freezer). They just can't be bothered to put it back properly. If supermarkets incur losses on such stuff, guess where they are going to make up for these losses.

supermarket should put up sign to say "Once Opened, Considered Sold" for food stuff

oh, i do pick up a box of strawberries to smell and into the basket it goes most times. sometimes if i dont get the smell, i would put it back. i dont open it up to smell.

i dont open up boxes of fruits, eggs or anything else to pick the best lot and put them into the box i want.

i also dont poke or press fish and meat neither do i leave them at different parts of the supermarket if i decide i dont need them anymore in my basket.

I once stood behind an elderly lady who took her own sweet time to poke holes into every cling-wrapped chicken in NTUC Fairprice... maybe 20 all in all. At last she decided not buy chicken that day.

Since she did not leave any un-poked, I also decided on another species of animal for dinner that day. :faint:

Last time saw one open the bag of grapes, take one and eat.

Then don't want buy put back the bag...take another bag of grapes and eat.

And these bags are already weight with price on.

Also saw a few times, got people open detergent/deodorant up to smell then put back when don't want to buy.
:frustrated:

Perishables, I do not open or poke them. But for liquid detergents, I do open the cap to smell them sometimes. Provided they are not wrapped up in plastic. I usually stick to known brands and scents but at times may want to try out some new recommendations but being very sensitive to smell, I will always check if I can stand the smell before buying. The wrong type of scent can give me severe migraines.

How comfortable would you be, if you observed such egregious behaviours, to provide feedback to that individual? I think if enough of us stood up for it, it is what makes a difference and creates the 'Singaporean culture.' Its worth speaking up for, don't you think?
