Just a little Training
My first “real” job was packing groceries for Plumbs Markets. No plastic bags….only paper.
It was Plumbs service done properly. The senior bag boy trained the newbies. A perfect Plumb bag was a square bag….heavier items like cans on the bottom, fit to the shape of the bag….boxes in the middle….and lighter items on top….absolutely no squashed bread or broken eggs. Packing a square was a bag boys art. After packing the bags….they were loaded on to a cart and wheeled out to the customers car….even in two feet of snow.
A recent excursion to the local supermarket revealed the bag people have never been trained in packing a square bag. Just throw it all into the bag….paper or plastic or a recycle bag….and they are done….on to the next customer
I still like to pack a square bag….once a great bag boy….always a great bag boy….and something to be proud of.
It’s the small details that are important….that make a difference.
