From Reddit: My dad's work told him to bring home some of the excess Girl Scout cookies they had from an event today. I don't even.. But, he's actually going to be giving them out for free to his fellow veterans. Which will be easy because he works for the VA.
While Customer Rejects are humorous at times, why complain about people who leave non-perishables in the wrong place? I used to work at a Mart-store 20 years ago, and I just looked at it as job security.
They put it back in the wrong place, higher-ups have to keep floor sales people putting it away. This was before Mart-stores all had food items, so I can see where that would become a problem, but whenever I worked floor sales we kept a cart at the back where we would throw stuff that we found floating in our section.
About three times a day, we'd empty the cart, and other sections would do the same to us during the day. Every once in awhile when my children were very young, I'd discover that they had grabbed something, and I hadn't noticed and then put it down later. That can happen too.
Also, what can happen, I would get to the register and decide at the last minute either my budget couldn't handle a purchase or I changed my mind, but usually I would take an item back where I found it or leave it at the register if I decided I didn't want it anymore.
From Reddit: Friend works at Vons grocery store and this happened.
