A Day In The Life Of...


Scene: The local grocery store, which is somehow more crowded than it was the day before Thanksgiving. (Seriously, what gives with that?) Our young(ish) heroine Lulu has just spent the last hour skillfully navigating the tiny aisles, with only a few minor bumps due to crazy old people on Rascals wielding carts.

Act I

After filling up her pathetic little granny grocery cart full of the week's goods, she stumbles upon the find of the century- Progresso Light Soups for $2.79 a can. Our heroine has never before seen that soup below $4.69 before (and seriously, who charges $5 for a can of soup?!?), so she carefully chooses her flavors, loads up her cart, and heads to check out.

Checkout Girl, yelling over 3 checkout rows: "Mariaaaaa!!! How much is this soup!?"

Lulu, thinking to herself: "Um, each and every one of these cans have price tags on them. I checked."

Checkout Girl and 'Maria' proceed to have a loud 4 minute conversation back and forth in Spanish about said soup, while the line piles up behind Lulu and a single item has yet to cross the scanner threshold.

Finally, 'Maria' trudges over to Lulu and says: "You can only get one flyer deal of 'buy 2 get 1 free' with this soup, miss"

Lulu: "Oh! Um, that's fine. I didn't realize it was on sale, I'm sorry. Can you just ring them up at the normal price on the tag? I'd like to get them all, I don't need any 'buy 2 get 1 free' deals. I'd just like to buy all the soup."

Maria agrees, tells Checkout Girl what to do (again, in Spanish), and Checkout girl proceeds to (finally) ring up the goods. After she calls 'Maria' a foul word under her breath. In English.

Things are now back to normal in the checkout line.

Until Checkout Girl takes 7 of the soup cans and puts them under her register.

Lulu: "Um, miss? I'd like to buy ALL of that soup today. That's why I put it in my cart. I'd like all of it. I don't need the buy 2 get 1 free deal, I'd just like the soup please."

Checkout Girl: "Okay, no problem." She keeps ringing. The soup stays under the counter.

Lulu: "Miss? That soup you put under your register? I'd like to BUY that soup please."

Checkout Girl: "Ok." (Rings up last item, yet leaves soup under the counter.)

"Will that be cash or charge?"

Needless to say, Lulu did NOT go home with the soup today.

Unreal.

End Scene.

xoxo,
Lulu

Mrs. in May said...

Gotta love this day and age where customer service has CLEARLY gone out the window!

Saskia said...

Wow, that's unbelievable!

Sounds like UK customer service has travelled the Atlantic!

Lou Lou said...

Ugh, talk about banging your head against the wall! So frustrating!

Sarah said...

Seriously?!?!! And $4.69 for real?!?!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

What in the hell just happened? How bizarre! I would have just walked off and probably cried in frustration in my car! Wow!

Jennifer said...

This is ridiculous! Did the checkout girl think you were going to pay for something she stashed under the counter. Unbelievable!

Wearing Mascara said...

Oh dear...

Sadly, this sounds a lot like my grocery/fast food/pharmacy experiences around where I live. It was probably a language barrier (do you agree?). Yikes...

I'm sorry you didn't get your soup! :-(

Miss Monogram said...

WHAT?! She just keeps the soup?? I don't get it--I would say checkout girl falls under the "customer no service" category ;)

Callie said...

Oh, my! Well, you didn't want that soup, anyway, right? ;)

Mrs. Not-so-Domesticated said...

Whoa...I don't even know what to say.

Jessica said...

That is so annoying! I would have called the manager!

Life at the White House said...

wow.

you are a much better person than me! i would have been so frustrated and likely been a little tacky.

Kappa Prep said...

Ugh, sometimes I just do NOT get people. I mean honestly. Wow.

Bride Sophisticate said...

Oh my gosh! What in the world? Did you feel like you were on candid camera? And I thought that stuff only happened to me, ha!

Sorry about the soup, I love it too!

Pink Preppy Party Girl said...

No soup for you!

Snow White said...

Did anyone behind you in line catch on to this insanity? Truely appalling! I probably would have jumped across the counter and strangled her... you're such a lady!

Mandy Rose said...

I am for sure laughing over this post! I didn't know a grocery stop could be so dramatic!

Belle on Heels said...

Ummmm RIDICULOUS. You're so much nicer than I am! I would've had a temper tantrum until I got my soup; you're not kidding...that stuff is SO good!!

The Sweet Jelly Bean said...

I loved this - felt like something straight out of a twisted chick lit novel! Found you via a blog on Secret is in the Sauce - have a great day! :-)

Snickerdoodle Champagne said...

Oh my gosh I would be SO annoyed! Obviously she didn't get what you were saying and props to you for not giving her crap and asking for her manager... although I think maybe I would have because it probably would've been more satifying leaving the store!

Better luck next time, I guess. :)

USCEmily said...

Hold up, WHAT!?! I would have had to cause a scene, even though I despise causing scenes. That is just ridiculous!
