I didn’t want to hijack this pit thread about the cart blockers, but I did want to ask:
At the grocery store, when passing in front of someone browsing a shelf (when you don’t have the easy option of going behind them), do you excuse yourself or is it just considered a part of the shopping that people are going to walk in front of you if you stop to browse?
I don’t really browse much as I usually know exactly what I want in the brand I want but if I do, as long as someone doesn’t stop fully in front of where I’m trying to get to, then I don’t really take notice.
Most of the time when I pass by someone browsing I do it quickly with a mumbled “pardon me” to which most seem to mumble “no problem” but it got me wondering as to how common it is.
So, do you excuse?
