I ask if he knows where I can find aforementioned pudding. He says he isn't sure, that isn't really his department. Then he informs me that I should 'Just keep looking'. Gee, why didn't I think of that?
Miffed, I head on up to the checkout, find another employee, they help me with minimal problems (even leaving their station to do such), and I pay, and go on my merry way.
I did mention this to a manager, but her response was 'It's his first day'. Uh, and?
I know. Not the OMG WORST SERVICE ever, but it was still pretty damned rude.
Perhaps I over reacted a bit. -Shrugs- :) Ah well.
