$.25 shopping cart routine and instead put my groceries in a empty Aldi box. Upon checkout the clerk told me that I would have to take everything out of the box and put it on the conveyor belt before she could ring it up. When I asked her why she couldn't simply take them out of the box as she rang them up; she said that I would have to take everything out of the box except the head of lettuce. When I asked if she was serious she told me that it was Aldi's corporate rules. Aldi rule #1, consumers concerns are not important. When all is said and done it's really all about the lettuce.
