    Don't know why i got no replies in advice on everyday things. Well it is a serious question because i don't get out much and this is the only place i can get answers.

    I had like two packs of flour, 1kg chips, 4 pack beans, 9 mars bars and washing tablets box.
    It was in a neat column from my waste to my chin, as i was walking out of the supermarket this charity guy started shaking is head very discreetly as i walked past and this woman also gave me a moody look.

    Is there a problem with taking shopping to the car like that?

    Do they not think that perhaps i didn't get a trolley is because i wasn't expecting to buy that much and there's no point going to get one.

    Why whenever i get small little problems like this that i blow it up into something big and then think what other people that i look up to would think later on?

    Is there anything wrong with it, what would you do if your friend did it?

    I mean it is not seen as something dishonorable or rude, but it just makes you look like a bit of a idiot to some people.

    That's what has annoyed me because then i start thinking "what would my friends think" and then i'd feel like i'd have to ask them on fb but i feel embarassed to do that.
    Then i think should i be ashamed like would people unfriend me in real life well if i had those friends living near me.

    I don't understand why it's seen as an idiot though. I mean it's saving plastic bags and if you're not struggling then what's the problem.

    I think if you had a friend that did it would you just say "haha you idiot" and then still be their friend. That's what i'm getting at in general.

    So i'm probably overthinking then and i shouldn't be ashamed and that you wouldn't hate your friend if they did it

    Honestly, don't worry about it. If I saw someone doing this I'd probably just be mildly amused, in a good way!

    Thank you, i know it sounds like a silly question, i look back at my other questions sometimes but only after i've lived life out in other countries that i then realise that things that happen here are nothing to even think about but after a while of being at home and not going out, i tend to think things again.

    Good it wasn't like it was pushing my chin i just put my chin on to balance it actually then i was still ok without, i opened the car door without it on my chin. One girl smiled with me.
    I usually think it's just people being Picky because somethings different to their way of doing things and they don't think outside the box.
