I've heard some downright petty complaints over the years but this one I heard this morning at work I'd have to say is probably the dumbest . . . so far.
I posted a bit on FB during my lunch about it, so a couple of you have already read about it. For those of you who aren't FB buddies, or haven't checked back, here's what went down . . .
I was out on the drink/chip/snack aisle changing prices this morning (new ad day, of course) when this older man walked up the aisle w/his cart and basically blew my mind.
Cast of characters:
DG - Me, of course
OF - Old Fart nosy guy
Old Fart came up the aisle w/his cart and stopped.
OF: Excuse me, I hate to be nosy but I saw somebody outside putting a bag of trash in one of your cans and I don't think it's right
DG: *WTF* Well, Sir, I think I'd rather people be putting their trash in the cans rather than throwing it out into the parking lot. That is what the trash cans are for, after all.
OF: I know but this wasn't a little bag, this was more like a big bag like they brought it from home. You'd think people would have trash cans at home to get rid of their trash . . .
DG: Well, maybe their cans are full at home, who knows? *shrugs*
Old Fart wanders up the aisle and I just shook my head.
I mean, really, of all the things you could think of that are worthwhile to complain about and you picked this
If you really wanted to be "outraged" about it, call Channel 2 news or CNN.
Several of us had a good laugh during the day over that . . .
