My nomination for stupidest food clerk ever.

Okay, I admit I am a little "uppity" about the service I receive at grocery stores. Working in one for 12+ years just sort of makes you that way. But this one has got to take the cake....

We were at the natural section looking for some yogurt for Beanie. It was out on the shelf.

Me (to clerk who was stocking a cart of organic milk & yogurt): "Do you know if you have any of the Nancy's organic whole milk yogurt?"

Clerk: "I have no idea."

Me: "Could you go look in the back and see if there is any?"

Clerk: "I have no idea where to even look."

Me: "Could you ask someone who might know where to look? I really need the yogurt for my daughter."

Clerk: "You can ask that guy over there. He might know where to look."

So I go over to the produce guy who also tells me he doesn't really know where it is, but at least offers to go try and find it. And he did.

So, clerk who knows absolutely nothing and sucks beyond belief thanks a lot. First off, if you don't have any idea don't up and say that to the customer. At least pretend like you have a clue. And second, a good place to look for yogurt is probably somewhere refrigerated. Like the cooler. And its yogurt, so I'm guessing the dairy cooler. Come on, the produce guy found it!

I admit I sound snotty, but puhlease, you work at a grocery store. It isn't rocket science. Good grief!

  1. I am the same way...I have done too many customer service related jobs to be treated poorly.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
