So, I wrote the other day about supermarkets being the devils armpit. I hate them, I want them to not be a thing that is so needed in the world and, lo and behold, yesterday I was given a prime example of why this is the case.
I was in line, happily half-drunk from the beer stop I had made before the store and the young man, who I won’t name because I am pretty sure I already got him fired, was about the worse case scenario for a grocery cashier.
I shall give you a few examples of his delightful dumbness.
- He decided my bread needed to go in the same bag as the ten pounds of sugar I got.
- He almost ripped a hole in my hamburger package, shrugged, and threw it in the bag. yes, threw.
- He had his ear buds in the entire time, which having worked for TOPS before, is a no-no.
- He threw the bags of groceries onto the back table and I pretty much had to rescue my food.
The best however, comes last.
After I drop hundreds of dollars on delicious food stuffs, he looks me dead in the eye and says, I quote with the fancy WordPress quote button…
A’ight Motherfucker, I’ll see yo ass later.
Call me a prude if you must, but when I go and get food from a store, that is not the interaction I want to have.
So, in a thing I never do, I called TOPS when i got home and read a riot act and they assured me, as they always do of course, that the situation would be handled in a timely manner.
I am there nearly every day, we will see how that flies.
