Default Interesting observation while checking out groceries

I was at the local grocery store yesterday putting my haul up onto the checkout lane. There was a white girl scanning and brown gentlemen bagging. I had some pork chops wrapped in butcher paper that she scanned and passed over to him. He picked up the package, looked at the label, put it back down hurriedly, and switched places with the girl. He then began scanning the remainder of my groceries. I didn't grasp the concept at first, but it became clear when he left the pork ribs til the end. He then made her come back to the scanner and handle the ribs all the way to the bag. I wasn't/am still not sure what to think about all of this. It doesn't bother me at all, but I wonder if it gets annoying to coworkers who have to go through extra steps due to his religious beliefs. Pork in any form has to be a pretty common item among shoppers; and this must happen several times per hour. What says THT?

Assuming he is Muslim, it is just fine.....until a homosexual couple demand he make them a cake with a picture of Allah eating pigs.

If it's all wrapped up, should it really even matter?

I believe it's only haram if they eat pork. All he's doing is touching the paper. As far as I know, no religion prohibits the touching of paper.

He's full of BS.

Well I’ve had catholic people get mad at me for cutting the bread.

BUT

That is what makes this country the best in the world. A Christian marine stands and fights elbow to elbow with a muslim Navy man and they do that so ppl have the right to believe in what they want to.

An incovenience? Yes maybe less than 60 seconds. At least that man is trying to earn a living vs maybe the man that asked for your spare change as you walked out the door.

When I was in Malaysia, which is primarily a Muslim country, I went to the most interesting marketplace I've ever seen. About the size of maybe 8 football fields. Absolutely stunning what could be purchased there. Almost endless list.

Segregated from this giant place of commerce, was the slaughter room and display cases for pork. Every part of the pig was for sale. Everything. However, you had to enter through two doors to get in with signs in many languages warning of pork and pig blood.

Orthodox religious beliefs are what they are. Some Muslims believe they should not even handle pork. Jews, Catholics, Hindis, and many other religions have certain beliefs, this is no different.

The black gentlemen is just a believer in his God, nothing more.

If you wanted to be mean you could go back to same store two or three times a week to get pork chops, ribs, boston butt, sausage, or some other pork product and pick the line that the same guys is working.

Sounds to me like he is making an issue out of nothing until management gets tired of it and puts a stop to his nonsense. At that point in time he will lawyer up and get a pay day or go public and create a headache for everyone. Seems to be the MO for the last 5 years for these sort of who gives a shit non issues.
