People who have jobs and who work with the public in this economy should be extra nice, not extra nasty...

Friday seems to be free-sample day at the local Walmart and I had to stop by to get a few things for the weekend. On the way to the meat department, there was a display of Pringle-type potato chips (maybe they <i>were</i> Pringles, I didn't stay long enough to find out) - several on a napkin, some an orangish color, the other plain.

"Oh! These look good, could I just have one though?" Demonstrator reaches in to the tube of the regular-colored ones, and I say "these (pointing to the orangish ones) are different from these (pointing to the other ones), right?" She answers me "OBviously..."

I looked her in the eye and said "You don't have to be snippy about it, nevermind" and walked away. I probably should've told the manager but I just didn't wanna get into it (as I thought to myself that maybe it was a stupid question to ask and what I should've said was "could I have one of these instead please").

Do I just happen to be running into these people lately, or do you notice workers who work in the public have quite the attitude?

Arrgh - there, now I feel better.


How did the fool *get* his money?!
