Inbred Mothers....

I hate small towns. I hate stupid people. I hate apathy. I hate this PLACE!

Today is the DH's birthday. I went to the store found killer cupcakes (its what he wanted), two small groupings of these gorgeous blazing orange and yellow Tulips and a cute cared. I walk up to the express, lights on no one is there. As I walk off she hollers to come back. I put my things down carefully. I watch her bag the stuff and my mouth drops. She turns the container of cupcakes on its SIDE! "Did you just flip those over?" I ask. She pulls the cupcakes out of the bag, one is stuck to the top of the container, a second is stuck to the side. I get an "opps. Do you want me to get you another one?" I snorted and said, "No I will go get them." She tries to get a co-worker to go get them I refuse and tell them that most of them were messed up in the first place. Not to fucking mention that that was the ONLY container that didn't have Sponge Bob or Princesses stuck to the top of them.

I grab my cupcakes, grab my bags and start to leave. She bagged both ends of the tulips and they slipped out in front of me and I stepped on them. Of the 10 tulips only 3 survived, the remaining I left for my neighbor's daughter since they fit in a fucking Dixie Cup!

After I calm down, I plan on going back and seeing if there was at least 1 more bunch of those tulips that weren't already open and spent. I really hate the pathetic attitude of people and their lack of common sense. Who wants cupcakes that are squashed and half of their frosting is stuck to the top of the container?

If it's any comfort -- and I'm sure it's not -- this kind of incompetence doesn't appear to be limited to small towns or the Midwest. I used to think it followed me wherever I went, but now I'm realizing it's pervasive.

Incidents like these do make us appreciate the people who care about their jobs, though!

Thanks AWTM - I love almost all spring bulbs Dafs included.

Bette - I grew up in surburbia in CA and although they are getting aweful hippy nutty now they still don't mess up your In N Out order or turn your cupcakes upside down. TX never ran into it, VA never ran into it either. This place in particular has horrid service.

how about this one? I had a kid put my bread in with a two liter bottle of soda! I kid you not. Yeah, that bread survived~NOT!!

Now I just go through the "self check" lines at the Super Wal-Mart. I can bag my own stuff the way I want it.

I have noticed, in general, a lack of adequate customer service almost everywhere - at the fast food restaurant, the grocery store, the craft shop and on and on...

I remember when I was just coming of age to work, I worked in retail. We had seminars and it was drilled into our heads that customer service was of the upmost importance. Not so anymore. I'm always finding myself astonished over the rude treatment by clerks, cashiers, etc...

I guess because our economy is so robust, there is no longer a need to be polite and perform ones duties well. What a shame.
