    The Moldest Trick In The Book

    | Buffalo, NY, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (I am shopping with my boyfriend at the grocery store. I pick up a loaf of bread.)

    Me: “Ugh, look at this! It’s so moldy down at the bottom. We should tell someone.”

    My Boyfriend: “Alright, I’ll check for more bread like this so they can get rid of it.”

    (While he does that, I go over to a register to complain.)

    Me: “Hi, I found this loaf—”

    (The cashier takes it and flips it over.)

    Cashier: “Tah dah.”

    (I flip the bread back over and point at the mold.)

    Me: “No, no, people won’t buy it like this. I’m telling you this so that you guys can get rid of it.”

    Cashier: “I can’t give you a refund if you didn’t buy it. Sorry it was moldy. Just flip it over.”

    (I am a pastry chef and am doubly certified in sanitation and food safety. I explain this to the cashier when my boyfriend comes up.)

    My Boyfriend: “This is why I stopped shopping at [store].”

    (He drops a handful of moldy bread loafs on the register.)

    Cashier: “Just flip it over! No one will notice!”

    (I’m never shopping there again!)
