Now, I do feel rather bad, because he had to open a new package of cheese to finish my order, but that doesn't excuse what he said. I was there with PLENTY of time left to get my order.
I worked in a grocery store for close to 7 years. Our deli wasn't allowed to shut down the traditional side (sliced meats and cheeses) until the store itself was closed. This particular Kroger is 24/7, so I understand that they have to close the deli at some point. But shut it down at the posted time, not some arbitrary time you choose because you want to get out early, or just goof off on the clock. I would have spoken to the manager in charge, but I was already pretty heated about some other things that weren't related, so I decided against it. This was also the ONLY time I've had a wtf experience there, so I'll let it slide..this time. I'd really hate to stop shopping there because it's the ONLY place for me to get Boars Head in my town. If I stopped shopping there, I'd have to go into Lexington for my yummy deli meats.
