I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.
I always hated Krogers when I lived up north.
Dr. Pepper and Tobasco are your archenemy. But you have defeated one and will enjoy the other!
I once rubbed my eyes after chopping jalepenos....
Teacher here, so I get the government employee rant.
I hope the deviled eggs were delicious!
You need to put a beatdown on that tabascobitch! lol!
Yay deviled eggs!
My Xh and half my family work for the dept of defense or the state. Most of my family work in a hazzard area. People don't get that they get paid more because of it. I've had family and friends who developed serious, deadly health problems because of their job.
My XSIL once told her daughter that we were rich. WTF ever lol! I set that straight real quick.
Hopefully once Obama is out of office you will get a raise.
It is what it is.

I feed the family of 4 plus 2 dogs for about 90 a week, We can only go every other week, and we ONLY go between times for dog food and diapers, anything else we just live without.
The worst was when we ran out of milks, bread, and eggs....never in a million years would i think that we made so much stuff with those 2 ingredients
I have learned to make meals based on sales rather then what i want to make. We eat alot more potato stuff when i can get a 10 lb bag for 1.99 :)
Times are tough. Today I made $90.00 bucks cleaning and have to pay for 3 dinners and a pair of school sneakers for my son. I could not do it with out coupons. We all struggle. Vent away. I would be pissed too.
You should have received your discount freebie. Did they send you to the service desk? Cashiers worth anything know the Friday stuff and should know the work arounds- not stare at you...
Even though it is only a buck fifty sometimes it is worth the confrontation in order to get results.
If you faced the problem then other people did too and in my experience it is worth getting to know who the people who work at the store who know their shit and are willing to help. As opposed to the idiots who are marking time, who just want you to go away.
I would take the time to email the store manager with the name of the clerk if you remember it.
She/he should have asked for customer service rep or sent you there to SOLVE your problem. Not acted like it was unsolvable....
One time I was fed up trying to stock up on a 'loss leader' item I needed for a scout event and complained to the manager-- I received and apology and a $50.00 gift card.
I know who to ask for help at my store and boy does that make things easier.
I am sorry you had a rough day. Sometimes you have to fight for your right for the free DR pepper.
Put on your friendly, but serious bitch boots and got get that 2L.

Yes, yes! that's totally what I had hoped to become when I grew up....
Hey I am a cleaning lady with a college degree!
Not in my life plan.
I take pride in the fact that I can wring a lot worth out of the dollars I do earn. I think you should too!
We should start a tips thread---
Here is a good one. Did you know that from 4-6 pm if you go to the Deli at Kroger's and they do not have an hot and ready Rot. Chickens then you get a coupon for a free one. I am always checking the deli if I am there in that time frame!!! Free Chicken tastes better!

I laid out exactly what happened and finished with the line, "Thanks for reminding me why I usually shop at Target and Wegmans."
The very next morning the store manager called me and I ended up getting a $20 gift card as an apology.
So....try writing to the corporate office. They might send you a coupon, gift card, or something else nice. It's worth a shot!
Trust is like paper. Once it's crumpled it can never be perfect again.
