    Actually I was quite disappointed in the behavior of some of the other shoppers. I was there this past Motzaei Shabbos and again today. PEOPLE!! get a hold of yourselves!! the shoving and congestion was unbearable! I dont understand what would posses a normally demure and tznius populace to suddenly become daredevils with shopping carts and their bodies. I felt like a QB being sacked, BY WOMEN!! And then on line, I see a woman with one cart. She starts putting groceries on the conveyor and her husband then brings a second huge cart or groceries. Okay, it was annoting to me and the other people on the line but its just 2 carts. But no, the guy comes back with A 3RD CART pushes though all of us and gets behind his wife. At least his wife had the decency to look apologetic at the rest of us staring in disbelief. Him? nothing. Not even an inkling of remorse. I just don’t understand why basic midos go out the window during heavy shopping days. This is not the first time I have experienced this. SMH…..

    Until you’ve shopped erev Sukkos at Rockland Kosher, you haven’t had a TRULY chaotic, pushy, scary, trampled-upon shopping experience.

    CAD: Should the couple have gone on line three seperate times?

    CAD, I agree with you. They should do all of their shopping and then get on line, so that the other customers can estimate which register has the quickest line.

    Thank you!! DY. That is exactly the tainah that the woman just ahead of me said. Truth be told, I didn’t really care. I had lots of time that day, but what about the 3 other people inline. At least they should have asked their permission. Alternatively, the wife could have checked out, waited 2 more customers and then met up with her husband after he checked out the last cart. Its basic midos. Also the basic lack of tznius was a little shocking. I don’t want to be accosted by someones bosom leaning across me to reach a package of chicken. I was mortified, why wasn’t she?
