Erin Wants To Know What Would You Do?
During a recent visit to a local grocery store, I ran into a big problem. I need your advice.
I had a few minutes to run into a local grocery store to pick up some things we needed at the house. I also wanted to get some of the meat specials. I’m not gonna name the grocery store, but I grab a whole pork loin. It’s on sale and I like to get big thick chops that I can stuff. I press the bell in the meat market…and wait. No one shows up. I press the bell again…..no one shows up. So I go to the deli and ask them to send help. I have to go to the deli 3 times to get help in the meat market.
The guy finally comes over. He was not too thrilled about having my project to do. I told him I wanted them cut 2 inches thick and pack them 2 to a pack. I go about finishing my shopping and come back to find he’s cut them about 1/2 inch. I was not happy. I didn’t have time for him to redo it. So I get to the register and ask to see the manager. I tell him the problem and he asks “if I take $10 off, would you be happy”. I said yes. Ten years ago, I would never have said a word. What would you have done? Should I have been a bigger jerk?
