Did I just get chastised...
by the cashier at my local Safeway for pulling 3 $.55/1 silk half gallon or larger stickies?
Ok so here's the scenario... I pulled 3 of the stickies because I didn't bring enough money with me today to buy them and we have a crazy coupon lady who will take them all. Actually we have 2 of them roaming town. In any event I snagged 3 thought cool I'll come grab 3 tonight or tomorrow. I check out with my 1 gallon of regular milk for the lone lactose digester in the house, and the cashier looks in the cart and asked if the 2 dove coupons on the circular were mine. I said yes, so she walked around the checkout to the cart while i'm paying and said are these silk ones yours too, I said yes. She pulled them off the cart and went back around behind the register. (I thought she was coming around to put the milk in the cart for me like they do) Then she holds them up in my face and says "You can't take these, only if you are buying these now." I told her well, I am taking them so I can buy them later before the weirdo grabs them. Mind you, $.55/1 is not much in a double-less zone like mine on a 3.99 half gallon of silk. I buy probably about 6-8 half gallons of silk per week at this store. Her parting words were if you want to use coupons then learn how to use them. Ok, fine, so I told her manager on the way out that if she wants to chastise me about taking 3 stickies, she could at least put my milk in the shopping cart while she's at it, like she's supposed to.
He told me he would take care of it, he sees me there all the time. (I only shop here, but once every few months when I need to stock up on meats I go elsewhere) Then he apologized, even though he didn't have to. How sweet, he's so nice. He told me it was ok to take some stickies to use later, "Our customers do it all the time".
Has anyone else been chastised like this?
