Customer in front rearranged my groceries

I don’t know, maybe I am some uptight freak or something.
I did quite a big supermarket shop today and the guy in front of me at the till kept commenting on what I was putting on the belt. Already I found that odd. Like mind your own business mate? (I was buying totally normal things like eggs, bread, sausages, milk etc for the week).
Then he decided I was putting them on the belt incorrectly and he started rearranging them all. I had them lying down so they wouldn’t topple but he put them all upright to make more space.
I was so uncomfortable. I didn’t say to stop because he was talking to me in rapid French (I live in Switzerland). But I was very anxious and wanted to clean everything when I came home.
We’re in the middle of a pandemic. You don’t touch people’s groceries ANYWAY but especially not now!! Am I right?? Or just some crazy uptight person????

OP posts:

Am I being unreasonable?

Regardless of language or pandemic if someone started messing with my shopping they'd get an "OI!" and I'd smack their hand away if they continued. He had no business doing that. You shouldn't have put up with it.

God he'd hate to be in front of or behind me then. I just lob it on the conveyor belt and hope for the best. I am of course a bit more careful with eggs and wine of course

This thread is horrendous. So much othering of neurodiverse people.

People can be arseholes and not have any ND diagnoses. Stop trying to explain away dickery by insulting people.

Sounds like there's something up with him (OCD, or something). I'd just let it go.
