People would complain about the bagged salads doing this. "I saw on youtube that bloating means it went bad." no, that is brand new, it is just the gases. More fun was when something swelled up enough to pop in the box so you could get a surprise when it was time to stock.

"I just can't help but stand there for a minute, dumbfounded that she hasn't learned anything from our 30 minute ordeal." No, she learned that receipts aren't needed because if you throw a tantrum, the manager will give you what you want. She was rewarded for her behavior, so why change it at this point.

Honestly this sounds more like someone who has to apply to x amount of jobs per week to keep either unemployment or other benefits and isn't allowed to turn down interviews. So instead they purposely bomb them so completely, there is no way they would be hired even by the most desperate of places.

Pretty sure that's one of those dummy stores they set up to take the pictures, make sure merchandise fits and so forth. It actually has no customers or sells, yet corporate can't understand why all the stores don't look like that.

@SS don't be silly, you can't treat rich people that way. Security and police are only for the poor masses, tsk.

The gas station probably did something like put $100 hold on the card until it processed. It's a pain that many banks and gas stations now do.

That went from almost creepy to sad sweet. It was a good thing the wife paused a moment to explain things though, or the poor guy probably would have been branded a creep and you would have been left with a bad feeling instead of a good one.

"every airport in the US would give me a discount" Um no, not every store in the US suddenly gives out discounts on the 4th. I mean plenty of large places probably have sales, but they don't suddenly go "Oh you are American like 90% of our customers, you get an extra discount." That part of her logic just made no sense to me.

When I worked deli over a thanksgiving, I had a confused college kid wonder into our area. He looks at the meat for a little bit, and then opens the case up from the front taking out an entire turkey breast. At this point I wonder over to try and help the guy before he hurt himself. I politely asked him how much he wanted and how he wanted it sliced. "Sliced?" after talking to him a moment, I came to realize that this poor kid was making thanksgiving dinner for the first time by himself and didn't even realize where to start. I took the turkey breast out of his hands and explained to him the meat you cooked at home was in the meat department, including small breasts that he could cook quickly at this point. He got a huge look of relief on his face, thanked me profusely, and skipped over to the meat department. I so wish I had a way to get in touch with the kid later to see if how exactly the meal turned out and if there were any casualties.

I'm not seeing the issue so much. If just one orange was bad, it is quite easy for a customer to just glance at the bag and see it looks good and then not notice until putting it on the belt. Or even the customer doesn't notice at all, but the cashier is nice and competent and goes "Oh, it looks like this bag has a bad one in it. Let's get you a different bag." That keeps the customer from wasting their time taking home a bad bag of oranges or bringing it back. Basic customer service. If taking less than 5 mins to run to produce to do part of your job angers you, then you might consider switching careers.

She was probably passing out from the vodka before, so this way she can stay awake and pretend to be a functioning alcoholic.

"I'm going to go tell a manager on you" um, ok. That should confuse the poor manager just as much as it has confused me.

Most grocers are still like that @Jofur. If they bake cookies, they come in already prebaked and frozen, they just get reheated in the oven. Some might get shapped dough that is frozen, but that is rare since it has an increase for contamination. The cakes also come in already made and frozen, just decorated in store. Although many stores are also getting away from that and only having writing done on the cake in store. Places that do full fresh bake are becoming very rare (Although I did work as a doughnut fryer in a safeway where I had to mix, cut, and fry)

I'm betting either the comment above (with no trained employees) or someone bought one of those squeeze cans of frosting and tried to do it themselves at home. Especially since that looks like cheap shelf stable buttercream for the writting and whipped for the actual cake

Even if you had a bakery, they aren't going to decorate a cake for the woman with random floor stock.

I have been to several small stores where an employee forgot to flip the sign to open in the morning and then got to busy to do anything about it. if the lights are on and doors are unlocked, I'm going to assume the place is open as well. The fact the employees decided to leave the store completely unmanned to go back and have a drink reflects more on the staff hired than the customers.

My thought line is someone wanted to play Guitar Hero and really was dumb enough to not realize those aren't real guitars.

I remember those surveys from Hellmart. Anon, except you needed to put your department, and your "role" in the store. So basically everyone would instantly know who you were since departments only had one department manager and one or two regular employees. Larger departments, like deli or bakery, might have closer to 10 employees, but still not a lot to hide behind.

I seriously did not even realize that was a cat until I read the comments. I thought someone was just being mean and didn't like the fur on the woman's hood or something else about her outfit. I came to the comments to figure out what I wasn't seeing.

Unless that belongs to the owners of the home, I am picturing a lot of foot prints appearing on the hood of that car. I would be doing a cha cha on top as I had to climb over

I must know the monkey story

Or the guy by the blue car was standing there talking when the person was trying to park, so they were trying not to hit them. Drives me nuts when people do that in parking lots or in middle of street and just stare at you blankly as you try to work around them.

A lot of bakers also don't consider fondant something you want to eat and will tell the customer to pull it off the cake when serving :P a well done butter cream is far better

But they are green, so doesn't that mean veggie? Same rule applies to Shamrock Shakes this time of year

My first thought was "that's nasty." Realizing that is how it is supposed to look, my second thought was "What designer is that stupid or what did the client do to piss them off to that point?"
