Now not all blogs are as provocative as I would hope. But still each is...in some miniscule way.
This story is about an obliging store clerk trained well in public relations. It started when an item caught my eye in this week’s grocery flyer – “Breakfast sausages thawed for your convenience” –at a giveaway price.
Now Hub and I might eat 2-4 sausages at a sitting, so I thought to myself, “I need to buy some of these. Not ‘thawed for my convenience’, but frozen.”
So I went to grocery meat counter and asked for the sausages on sale – “frozen, if you don’t mind.” The attendant rummaged the cooler.
“Truly sorry, madam,” he said, “but we have no frozen sausages.”
“That’s okay,” I said. “Still thanks for looking.”
I turned to leave. The attendant caught at my sleeve. “Wait,” he said. “Are you able to come back tomorrow?”
“Certainly,” I said. “Will more be coming in tomorrow?”
“No,” he said. “But I will freeze some for you tonight and you can pick them up tomorrow.”
Not too many employees in retail outlets that obliging, are there? Also not too many butchers so poorly trained in fitting ways of handling fresh meat.
