It doesn't bother me and given the amount of food that my kids eat, it has become the best solution all around.  I can usually run out at lunch, grab a few things and sometimes something from the deli there, store it in the work frig and be good to go when I get home.  I literally need a walk in frig I think at home to keep all we need for the entire week, lol.

I tried to avoid WM for my groceries this week - hit the other two stores (I usually go to all three) - but there was ONE item that both of the other stores was out of and I had to go anyway! GRRR!! (frozen corn, of all things)

I get really annoyed if I have to go to the grocery store more than once a week.

I don't see the need. We have always only gone once a week. My grandparents used to go everyday but they were retired and wanted fresh things. The stuff I get is fresh enough for me to last for the amount of time I need it. lol

I see the need, but I can certainly understand that not everyone sees that as a need or want.  I really think it depends on the consumption and/or type/quality of food that is purchased, and quite possibly storage space.
