This is what I deal with EVERY DAY


I don't think I have mentioned it here yet, but I work in a grocery store. I work in customer service and have been in the same job for almost 28 years now. WOW. Just writing that blows my mind. Can I just say that some of the shit I have to put up with and listen to, I would NEVER EVER do or say in any store. (well maybe i would at Wal-Mart...I hate that dump) So anywhoooo.....The homeless lady who brings back a $75.00 prime rib roast that's a month old, and says she defrosted it (what under a bridge?) and its bad. Now I have NOTHING against the homeless, don't get me wrong. But I DO have a problem with a known street person with no home, bringing in a hunk o meat like that wanting me to give her the cash. We get ripped off all the time. We have this new policy-HASSLE FREE REFUNDS-that allows this to happen. So next time you go shopping and you wonder why everything is so damned expensive, this is why. We ended up giving her ANOTHER lovely prime rib, instead of giving her the cash. WHATEVER. I can't even afford to buy my family a luxury like that.

Then there's the people who come up with the funny stuff. Stuff that just makes you wonder, how the hell did they come up with that one? For example. True story. A woman calls the store and wants to make a complaint. She says she bought a box of corn flakes and there is something in it. We ask her what is in it, she says " I bought a box of corn flakes and there is a BOOGER in it" WHAT??? Yes I'm SURE someone at the corn flakes factory couldn't find a tissue and just did a back woods hanky in your corn flakes. I shit you not, this is what she claimed. My boyfriend at the time thought he'd be funny and he called the store a few days later and got the same girl who took the "booger" call and he acted like he was a customer. He tells her "I have a complaint. I was in your store the other day and I bought a box of BOOGERS and there was a corn flake in it!" LMFAO. He turned out to be a lying, cheating no good piece of shit, BUT- It was hilarious. I love my job, I really do.

You should be in the emergency room and see what people stick in their body cavities! Everybody is crazy but you & me (and I'm not sure about you). LOL

Ok, this is seriously funny! A box of boogers! LOL!

You mentioned food prices, they have gotten out of hand. A $75 prime rib roast--that is just ridiculous.
