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!)
