Shop 'n Save
#1
Walked into my local Shop 'n Save (westmoreland) yesterday and was stopped (after being in that store for 20+ minutes) by the manager because he noticed I was printing a little. He asked me what I was wearing under my sweater to which I answered....."none of your beeswax."
He insisted that I'd tell him or I had to leave the store.

Apparently this is how managers these days work at Shop 'n Save. I told him that I had a nice job for him that would take him an hour and he asked what that was. I told him that he could take the two shopping carts my wife and I were pushing and shove them where the sun didn't shine.

He screwed the company out of $400. They will never see me again.
"The colors, the colors. Has anybody seen my good friend John?" Then he lit up a banana and he hung up.

You might want to go above him on this one.

I have OCed at my local SnS for a few years now. An the only issue I ever had was a curious bag boy.

You should have just answered it was a colostomy bag. They normally don't want proof after hearing that.

Never had a problem with it either but this guy was new. I just got off of the phone with the owner and he told me he reprimanded the manager. He apparently does not want to loose my patronage because he knows me and he also knows that I spend close up to $700 a month in that store.

Good job with the follow-up call.

It's amazing how a little cash changes the mindset of many store owners.

On the "drama" scale this thread was a big, fat ZERO.

I was always told that you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. You can throw shit in someones face and later find out that you fucked over a lot of law abiding citizens. Sometimes it is best to take the high road and sometimes it is best to take the low.

I contacted the owner (franchise dude) and explained it to him and he agreed with me. I never OC'ed in his store but after the phone call I went back and DID OC and even though some people were looking, no one actually said anything. I think my stand made a little difference.

I think contacting the franchise owner politely was a good move.

This idiom, however, is actually backward.

If you put a bowl of balsamic vinegar and a bowl of honey in a room with fruit flies, the vinegar bowl will attract more of the flies.


And a bowl of shit will beat them both. Smile
