Nope, you are not alone. I am a “passer” as well. I don’t have the patience to wait for someone to spend 5 minutes staring at the pasta sauces. My general, non-virus, shopping goal is to never stop rolling, grab-and-go, keep moving when at all possible. I understand that it may take a little longer now to find a second or third choice when selections may be limited, but it still drives me crazy when someone is gazing at the cereals like they have never been in a grocery store before.
In Michigan we can buy alcoholic beverages at any grocery store. I am not a drinker, so I am not positive, but I believe that “drug stores” like Walgreens can sell at least beer and wine and with a special permit, liquor (whiskey, tequila etc., type stuff).
How do alcohol sales work in other states? Can you buy beer and wine at grocery stores, but not the “hard stuff”? Or are there no alcohol sales of any kind, except at liquor stores?
