Here is another story of good intentions smacking you in the face...
As part of the Feeding America initiative our chain participates and sends physical tons of close dated refrigerated and slightly damaged canned goods, as part of the donation procedure the bar codes are scratched thru with a permanent black or red marker.
We get a direct to department phone call asking very nervously about a rather pricey package of bacon. Yes we do offer it for sale. Yes the current price is 15.99 per package on special offer.
As the day progresses a front service clerk brings back a shop sack with two packages of this mentioned bacon, sealed and returned for cash.
Upon closer inspection they are both at their best by date and upon even closer inspection the black marker lines through the bar codes were carefully cleared using a cleaning solution. So here we are likely giving cash to the NAT who apparently got the food from a food bank to rip us off.
Talk about biting the hand that feeds. Not only did the act of goodwill of a store donating good food to a food bank get corrupted by this filthy scumbag, but by them doing this the bacon has to be destroyed and it prevented someone in true need from a decent meat based meal.
Saddens the soul when even acts of corporate goodwill are corrupted so shamelessly by some self serving scum.
