While I was in college, I got a job at a local grocery store. It was a small scale store where everyone was trained to do all of the necessary tasks from stocking shelves and bagging groceries to customer check out. It was at that time I realized that while I was generally good at math, I stunk at visual-spatial problem-solving! I learned to bag back in the days when paper bags were the norm, long before the practice of putting no more than 3 items in a plastic bag that seems to be the custom now. It was an incredibly humbling experience to learn from trial and error how to pack a grocery bag both efficiently and safely.
