Grocery Store Hell, Part 2

Remember my last horrific experience at the grocery store? Well, I topped it tonight. As I was checking out, the cashier started hitting on me. I find this behavior disrespectful and inexcusable, particularly in a work environment. As if that wasn’t enough, he actually stopped the transaction to continue hitting on me. The line continued to build up, and I actually felt it necessary to apologize to the couple waiting behind me. I finally had to ask the guy to quit hitting on me and finish the transaction so I could go home to my husband (he doesn’t have to know). Gives a whole new meaning to the “check out lane” (hehehe).

After this post, I am going to write an angry letter to said grocery store. If I do not get free stuff, I will not only expose said grocery store (even though I’m sure you can figure it out), but I will never go there again. Thank goodness Lunds just opened down the street.

To be continued…

The only problem with your lie is your lack of a ring.

See, women (and fish) like shiny things. As such, if you were truly married, you would certainly be flashing that rock around.

If I was the cashier, I would've called you on it.

And then continued to hit on you.

Am I going to have to start wearing the bar fake at the grocery store?

Doesn't Lunds bag your groceries for you as well?

I have been really happy with Simon Delivers, which I know someone suggested after the previous grocery post. Prices may not be as low as Rainbow or Cub, but they are definitely competitive with Lunds or Kowalskis. The delivery fee is worth it for me, since it is impossible for me to carry $150+ worth of groceries in a single run on my bike. Produce is great, frozen stuff is packed carefully so that it stays frozen...

Sorry about that. In my book, though, if you are going to wink at me and then lick your lips, you are sending mixed signals when you all of a sudden get angry when I attempt to set up a rendez-vous for later that evening in the freezer section.

I'm just sayin'

People who work at grocery stores (or work for the public at all) hate people like you. - You know, the super-religious, arrogant, soccer-mom bitches who have exceedingly overactive imaginations that they use to get "free stuff." You want something for nothing, even if it means making up outrageous stories and blackmailing store managers in order to get it. I guess clipping coupons and taking advantage of welfare wasn't enough, was it? *Now make a sign and march about THAT.*
