Yes, grocery shopping is work !  But it can also be an enjoyable, social experience if you engage in casual chit-chat with a friendly checker. However, grocery stores are also bustling and noisy and it can be difficult to hear at check-out stands. Being able to visit with the grocery clerk is one of those small but meaningful ways to connect with people, to honor their role in efficiently tallying up your totals, and to add enjoyment and human connection to your own shopping experience.
