Supermarket shoppers in S'pore ditch baskets full of items & leave products at random spots

Please be considerate.

Many people in Singapore went to the supermarkets to purchase some essentials last week to prepare for the circuit breaker period.

And for some staff at various supermarkets, it appears that they are having a busy time.

Not only do they have to serve long queues of customers and restock items, they also have to clean up after other shoppers.

FairPrice staff cleaning up after "ugly, selfish" shoppers

One shopper, Julius Ho, posted his observation of "ugly, selfish behaviour" from shoppers at a FairPrice outlet that he visited last week.

He wrote that the employees at FairPrice outlets have "enough on their hands", but still have to help inconsiderate shoppers return abandoned items to the right shelves.

Here are some photos Ho posted:

Another shopper, Joanne Lwn, also spotted baskets full of items containing a mix of fresh produce and other necessities being left at one corner.

Lwn said that the baskets were left by a couple who assumed that it's part of the workers' job to help them return the items.

Clearly, most people did not agree with such behaviour:
