I moved from Lakeland out into what every calls BFE...Polk City.. Now while the *technical* Polk City is a "if you blink you miss it" sort of town..in other words, a town so small, no redlights. Small town.
Our regular grocery ( the only one in Polk City) IGA shut down. We had to go back into Lakeland to get our food. Two weeks ago, the new place opened up in IGA's place.
Me and my hubby go in to get food. Yeah, we are happy, no more long trips. First thing we notice, Yes, they have a deli.
Hubby proceeds to purchase a half of a turkey breast, uncut. ( We have our own meat slicer).. Lady puts it on the black thing and wraps it up with the cling wrap and then thanks us for not having them cut it, then we mosey on around the store. Get what we need and get in line to pay.
The bagger was a young female..alright no issue.. Another bagger, a young male comes over to start helping because it's close to closing.
The cashier rings up the turkey breast and slides it down to be bagged.
The two kids share a look and the girl picks up the turkey and starts to poke at the package. The boy does the same. They didn't do this once but repeative times. And out of the mouth of this girl, I hear..."What is this?" *pokes the package yet again" The boy.."I don't know" *He pokes*
I looked at them and calmly said.. "Please don't poke the turkey."
They both looked at me like I was crazy. The girl looks at me, looks at the guy and says "This is Turkey?" *Then pokes the package yet again before dropping ( yes dropping) it into the bag that had our eggs in it.
When the guy asked if we needed help getting the stuff out to the car, we said no thanks and as we walked out the door, he gave us a sneer.
I just blew the whole thing off and my husband then asked why I told them not to poke the turkey. When I explained, he was in shock.
Once, I can understand but when the customer who pays your paychecks asks you not to poke it and you turn right around and do it again, that's small bad service. Being a teenager, does not give you the right to disrespect the customer but the look on her face when I said it was turkey was priceless.
