Whether you love it or hate it, grocery shopping is a must. For most, it’s a routine errand that’s built into your ongoing to-do list. Perhaps you stick to the same list every week, or maybe you’re more likely to stroll through every aisle to see what speaks to you. Whatever the case, the contents of your cart can say a lot about you — at least that’s what your grocery store clerk thinks. After all, that conveyor belt is nothing but a window into your deepest, darkest secrets.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s relax for a minute. It’s not that serious. However, it’s certainly entertaining, which is why we’ve searched for the one item that seems to warrant the most reaction. And according to Reddit, there are a few products that made several clerks’ lists. (The overwhelmingly agreed-upon item you’re being judged for? Condoms, of course! But more on that later.)
It’s time to get to the top 15 things that store clerks judge you for, and what they’re thinking as you make that purchase.
1. Bottled water

Whoever decided to put water in plastic bottles is a genius. He’s definitely not an environmentalist, but there’s no question he’s laughing all the way to the bank. By now, plenty of folks know just how bad bottled water is, at least for the whole global warming crisis we’re in. Not to mention, it’s way cheaper to use filters, a fact that grocery store clerk and Reddit user PauloPelle94 points out.
