I also wonder if it’s because in NYC people don’t buy as many groceries per trip.
Great point Rod.

You just can't trust the gods special angels to understand that there is space between two peoples groceries.

Exactly. So we have to put down a bar. I hear you loud and clear. They do love things just so.

I use the bar. When I don't the cashier always starts reaching for my stuff to scan it in for the person in front. I stop them of course but i figured that big space behind their stuff and mine might mean something. Also, they saw me putting my stuff down right? Maybe I give them too much credit sometimes. Anyway, I use the bar to separate my stuff from the person in front and behind me.

The other day I was behind a woman who had so many groceries. I had to use the bar. I just didn't even want to risk a mix-up and then having to talk to not just her but also the cashier and the bagger. Not to mention Karen was with and she'd want to have a whole conversation with them about it.

NO THANKS!

To the people who think Chemda was a jerk…..

The people who wrote in saying chemda was a jerk or rude… *sigh


1. I bet the guest enjoyed it. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s on again and. Next time a bit more prepared for some of the interactions and back and forth.

2. Chemda was being authentic to herself. Even if the guest didn’t like it. Okay??? It’s Keith & the Girl not “The Enabler People Pleasing Podcast”

3. I suspect people who wrote in felt second hand embarrassment for the guest. But it’s strange they project that onto Chemda versus just acknowledging that sometimes we ourselves feel empathy. Sit in that rather than jump onto the “Chemda did something wrong” train of thought. I highly recommend those folks read Conflict is Not Abuse. Shoutout to Rod from TBGWT Podcast for recommending this book. Great read and we all benefit from reading it.

Thoughts & prayers to you weirdos who think Chemda was out of line. She wasn’t.
