Do you find people who eat at the grocery while shopping rude?

I'm not really a prude - and while I do shop at gormet grocery stores somewhat regularly, my "go to" grocer is a chain - as in there are many all over the region I live in. So that said, I hardly expect Emily Post manners in the grocery store. But ON THE OTHER HAND - after seeing someone in sweats and flip flops eating Cheez-its while they shopped (acting as if they had paid for them already) the whole idea of eating while you grocery shop really got on my nerves. For one thing, I think you should PAY and then EAT. For another thing, there seems to be something unsanitary and about someone with their hand in a cracker box as they handle items in the market. And finally, and OK, this probably DOES sound prudish, it seems extremely slovenly and self indulgent. It reminds me of sitting in front of the stove and eating while you cook. What do all of you think?
