Tortillas on the floor and lazy customers
« on: July 29, 2011, 04:36:34 AM »
Every grocery store I've ever been in always has a package of tortillas laying on the floor that slid off the stack. No problem, I pick the package up and neatly place it back on the stack where it came from. Do you think any of the other customers in the store would do that? I also pick up other products off the floor at put them back on the shelves where they belong. Seeing a product lying on the floor when it belongs on the shelf bugs me. The effort it takes to pick up the product is not that much since I have the grocery cart right there to lean on.

Have you ever seen a product sitting on the shelf that doesn't belong there? Just last week I was looking at the jars of pasta sauce on the shelf when sitting right next to them was a package of fresh pasta. Obviously, somebody had the fresh pasta already in their cart when they all of a sudden decided they'd rather have dried pasta -- probably because it was cheaper. Instead of taking the fresh pasta back to the isle it belongs in, the lazy asses leave it on the shelf next to the dried pasta. This wouldn't be so much a problem if it weren't for the fresh pasta needing to be kept REFRIGERATED. :mad:

Frankly, that kinda turns my stomach.

Germ transfer. Floors, especially in public places, have got to be the nastiest. Traces of whatever was on that floor will eventually be eaten by someone. It should have been thrown out, but I'm sure this happens all the time.

Yes I will pick up an item off the floor. If I have an item in my cart I decide I don`t want I will return it to the proper place even if I need to walk across the store.  If I I see a product that could spoil in the wrong place I will call it to an employees attention. The above cuts into the stores profit & comes out of our pocket.
The thing I like about old cars/trucks is the extraordinary lack of plastic.

I am so spoiled. Darling girls at the grocery store I would love to call over for any reason! I am sure they'd take a disinfectant wipe to it.
 There is one girl in particular who has blossomed this year. She was always pretty and sweeter'n 7-up, but she didn't hardly think so. This summer she lost some weight and figured out she really does have a great ass and is joyously flirting it around all over the place. I could just eat her up.

Merk, I'm with you!!  If you decide you don't want something, put it back where it belongs.  That is a large part of the problem with this country, people figure its somebody else's problem, so screw it.  I will pick things up and put them back as long as they are in sealed packages.  Common decency isn't anymore common then common sense. 

I shop later in the evenings and often see the store assistant manager tidying up the aisles.  I comment on it being a never ending job and they just roll their eyes in agreement.

People actually buy those plastic tortillas?
Tool do job = Good tool
When the media is owned by those who believe they have the right to choose leaders, and also believe that only the rich have the right to make decisions, the media ceases to be an objective reporting tool, and becomes an instrument of criminal conspiracy.

They go great with pickled eggs.

My pet peeve is the folks who are too dadgum lazy to push the carts forward in the cart returns....you'll see 15 carts overflowing because people are too lazy/afraid/whatever to push them forward and nest them inside each other.  I guess they figure that extra 2 seconds will make their milk spoil or something.
Check your stash of Taiwanese wrenches; looking for a "FLEETWOOD" brand raised panel combo; 1/2".  Sold by Santa Fe Tool and Supply in the mid-late 80's.  Sentimental value!

This may seem odd to you Rusty, I eat those prepackaged flour tortillas.  The local handmade ones have way too much grease in them.  I just prefer wheat flour over corn any day with tortillas.

And just to prove I am not normal...there is something in harvest all year round here.  but.....

I cannot eat most veggies anymore and don't like the acidic taste of most tropical fruits.  I can get lemons from the tree in the shop now, there is also a mango and tangerine tree in there.  I give the fruit to the family but won't eat it myself.
Give me stuff with the plastic bag sealed tight and a 3 year expiration date.  At least I won't get indigestion again.

I return perishable items if I don’t want them, and pick up what I drop, but everything else is the stores problem. I don’t clean up others junk in a public place. They pay high school dropouts $7.15 an hour to do that stuff.
I like at Aldi you need a quarter to “rent” a cart. Some people are too lazy to take their cart back to get the quarter.
