I dislike Snotty Grocery store workers *vent*
I realy do. I sit down on the 1st of every month and go through the store sales ads and put in a spreadsheet what I need and how much it costs so I go in knowing I have enough money on hand for the items. My Budget is always exact down to 2-3 dollars over or under but I have leeway for that purpose. I do this so that I can maximize what I get for what I spend.
This time the ad said 5 for $10 on general mills cearals, I was like "yay I can make smores squares for cheaper since we eat them as our sweet treats" so we went in, but I left my ad in the truck thinking no biggy they have signs on everything.
I grabbed the cereal, it had two signs one for a sale price that ended the 1st, and one that was this sale. I said ok because they've done that before and it rang up with the current sale. I get up there and have my calculator ready with everything because I add it up as I go to double check, and she tells me no the sale that ended the 1st was the price on the cereal. I was like "there are two signs, one says the price you rang up that ended the 1st and one is this sale." so the bagger goes "I just bought some last week so the price is right" The Casheir basicly told me I was wrong about the sale because it rang up at 3 dolalrs a box. I said fine and went about it, I ended up going over the ammount of money I had on me by a dollar. So i put the cereal back since it rang up as 3 dollars and got my stuff and went home to make sure I was seeing the ad right. plus I had to do a drop off for an item I sold on a yard sale site on facebook. I also wanted to wait a lil bit to cool down so I didn't cause a scene.
After I did my sale I went back in and had ad in hand incase it did the same. They rang up according to what I told the first cashier. I'm just pissy that a teenager would argue with me over a price instead of just checking the sales tag which was just 15 ft away in teh cereal ailse..
but now I feel like a budget nazi cause I was cranky that she told me I was wrong.. I do this budget every month, I go for sale days to maximize our food for cost every time.. it stings when I'm wrong or go over. and my leeway had been spent at a farmers market gettins a very nice watermellon for 3 bucks or I would have had that. but did the girl have to be snotty and refuse to listen?
