Oh Thrognar, the "joy" of finding items the Custy's have dumped.
In the store where I work, we like our Custys to tell us if they've changed their mind about an item, so they can be picked up quickly from our checkouts and returned before they spoil. But 98% of the time, the item will be left in the wrong department or, much to our dismay, at the end of the conveyor belt where people like to put their baskets.
It's a real piss take because we slaves don't notice the packs of meat and whatnot that have been dumped around all the time. One of my coworkers once found a WHOLE FREAKING CHICKEN that had just been dumped at the end of my counter, out of my sight. It had been there for several hours, so it had to be trashed.
I was incredibly pissed because it meant an animal had died for no reason, and that could have been prevented by the Custy simply saying, "Excuse me, ma'am? I've changed my mind about this item."
Then I'd say "No problem!" call for someone to take the chicken back, everyone's happy.
Graah! Sorry for the rant, I just hate it when people waste food, especially meat. At least when our Custys eat while shopping, they're honest to us and hand us the packaging to scan so it's still being paid for. We're actually very lucky in comparison to a lot of the stories here.
