After finding very little, I decided to use my rain check for more granola bars in conjunction with the $3 off $15 from Wegman's so I just needed to get a few more things. I grabbed some chicken that I had a coupon for that brought it down to same or lower then Aldi's prices. Then, I found some fries that I still had coupons that were close to expiring and they would be free because of the sale and the doubles so I thought it would be nice to try them. I went to the check out and two of the coupons didn't scan so the customer service person came over and he refused to scan either one because they said not to double on the coupon so instead of putting it in like every other customer service person does, he made it seem like I was trying to get away with something and the cashier was dumb and lazy. He was super rude and I left feeling worse then when I came in and I made them take the two items off the bill because I wasn't getting the items when the bill was $6 higher then it should be!! I am sure if this has happened to you that you can understand my frustration... it is fine if you want to refuse something but to talk down to me or your employee is just not the right move. Lucky for her, I was her last person and she got to take a break. I wonder if you have to let it roll off you if you work there or what because I couldn't take someone talking down to me in front of others without speaking back.
Although beaten down by this new customer service person, I still decided to go to the other store that is just a few miles away. They were out of the Windex, tea and most of the other items that I wanted to get. I didn't want to use the coupons that had to be overriden at the other store because I couldn't take it twice in the same day. I bought 3 boxes of pasta for total of $0.30. There were only 3 more boxes on the shelf but I put everything in the car and went back in to get the last three boxes with exact change and my reusable bag in hand. I am glad that I did because who knows when they are going to get them in again and my son eats pasta at least twice a week and will only eat Penne regardless of the whole pantry of other pasta.
Anyway, long story to tell you that this picture does represent three check outs at two different stores. I am certainly glad to be done with that for the day and hoping that tomorrow is the customer service person's day off so that I don't have to see him after going through with dental work first thing in the morning.
