Safeway Canada - Chashier telling me to learn how to read better.

59 of 63 Safeway Canada reviews

I was at safeway last night at around 10:55 i seen they had buy one get one free on soda pop, so i grabbed two and some chips and dip.At the check out the lady rosean (rose ane) i think, an older im guessing hispanic women the only person on till.

scaned the items and took my club card number i seen the pop wasnt buy one get one free, so i asked her about it, told her all the pop said buy one get one free. She told me that starts tomorrow. (at this point i was only bumed i didnt have enough for two pops) i said well that's pretty *** and false advertizing i thought the customer was always right. (the fyler also said buy one get on free but w/e not the point) then i told her i only wanted the one pop.

she rudely told me " well you should learn how to read better." i was pissed and felt very *** because my whole life ive had troubles in my reading and writing(i have a learning disablity). i was shook up i said im going to write a letter. she said go ahead and smiled (like she knew nothing was going to happen) (then somthing snapped) with my voice rasied but not shouting and in a rude manor(i know now i probley should have been nicer its not an easy job) "its very *** ignorant and rude to tell people they need to read better, its not you're job." she then stated that i was being rude first witch IMO i did nothing to deserve the aditude or remarks i snatched my recipt and stromed out. this is the fourth time ive been miss treated at this location and its going to be the last i never want to go back.

but somtime today i should talk to the manjor. ill add the cashire didnt greet me and looked and always looks miserable. but not my problem do you're job right. ill add the first time i was mistreated was by a woman, she told me i shoul'dnt smoke it's disgusting and looked at me in disgust.

it made me feel terrible for choices ive made in my life, and myself. the second time was a man said to me 19 and already smoking up a storm (or somting im that lines) legal age here is 19 but where i come from is 18 so ive already been adicted from starting at a young age. the thrid was i went to get a pack of smokes and the cashire took my id to customer servise where a smokes are stored and was showing it to her co-worker and the were talking about me i know but im not sure what was said then they started to laugh, she grabed my smokes and brought them to the till she then said to me "sorry you look like you're 14" with a full line behind me it was embarasing and made me feel self consouse about my looks. this store and it employees have made me feel terrible about my self caused me a great amount of mental stress and lowerd my self value, in the past 2 months.

No one should ever have to suffer this much just to go and pickup gorcerys, im always nice to the employees besides last night. should i sue? i probley cant but i do have a learning disablity and that was like a kick to the teeth. i really wish someone reads this i feel as if my story shoul'dnt go unheard.

what should i do about this? I dont think i will ever beable to shop at safeway again i keep being put down for things that are out of my control.

its like saying to the guy in the wheel chain why cant you walk.imsure he would be sad, angry and depressed just as i am.

Nobody made fun of you. Sue? For what? For someone making you feel bad?
I shouldn't be the one to say this, but grow up, and quit blaming others for your problems. We ALL have bad days, we ALL go through ***. Please.

You need help man. If some minimum wage cashier jockey makes you feel bad you need some therapy.

Are you kidding me with this post? This site is for people who have legitimate complaints, not for self serving, whiny people to come & go off on some weird rambling rant. You sir are an ***.

You are terrible. She explained that the sale starts tomorrow and you swear at her. As soon as I read that, I was immediately on the cashiers side, as you are the one who was abusive. You wonder why cashiers treat you poorly???? Maybe because you swear at them (not acceptable) and claim false advertising (which it's not)! It sounds like you were trying to get something for free and became terrible and abusive when you didn't get your way. Also smoking and "being addicted at a young age" is your own fault and your own problem. Comparing yourself to that of someone in a wheelchair is horrible and not even remotely the same. You my friend are not in a wheelchair and you can read/write well enough to write this complaint, so clearly you just didn't read the sign. It sounds like she did nothing wrong yet you decided to abuse this cashier and swear at her several times. Cashiers do it get paid enough to deal with trashy people such as yourself!!!!! God get some perspective and start taking responsibility for your own actions!!!

Actually, if the sign is up in the store even the night before they have to honour it. consumer law. Cashier should have taken care of it before he even had a chance to give her lip. That's how customer service is supposed prevent problems before they escalate.

i stopped reading this when the writer went off in a weird direction, rambling on about smoking. WTF?? Regarding the cashier, she should not have told you to learn to read better. That was rude. BUT, your idea the customer is always right is insane. Who told you that? And why would you believe them? When in your life are you or anyone else "always right"? That makes zero sense. If the customer is always right, then people could decline to pay for groceries or demand outrageous discounts. If the customer is always right, does that mean next time I go shopping I can smack the cashier and then urinate on the floor on my way out? I mean I could, right, because I'm a customer and the customer is always right!

seems like you have self esteem issues and might be a little self confidence, stop taking taking things so personal because the world isnt kind some of the times and you just have to deal with it, smile and move on. you can not control other people, just yourself, so be positive, and roll with the punches because no one is perfect and everyone has bad days, as we are all human...only YOU can let someone else make you feel bad and that is a choice, dont let anyone have that kind of power over you, just smile and tell them to have a great night and walk away knowning you were the bigger person.

It seems like you need to get a grip, and just accept you for what you are, and let other people have their tizzies, and smile at them, and go on.... Just do not stress out over other people, and let it go...

The ad clearly said that the sale starts the next day. You don`t know how to read so she has every right to tell you to learn how to read. This is not false advertising, more of you having a second grade level in reading comprehension. 90 percent of the time the customer wants to defraud the company or have the rules changed just for them, which makes them wrong. I see your grammar is poor so it is no shock you did not understand what your read. Your reading skills are at a second grade level as well as your childish behavior. Just because you have a learn disability and read the ad wrong does not mean they have to cave in to you. You started this whole thing by insisting you were right when you were not so any embarrassment you deserved and don`t use the I am learning disabled to play the sympathy card because it isn`t working. Most likely the man said you looked like you are 14 because you acted that age. You can`t sue because they did not give you want and followed the ad.

Even if he should learn to read better, and even if she shouldn't cave into his ignorant demands. she shouldn't have dealt with it that way. never insult a customer directly like that. you called him out on the disability card. and I'm not disagreeing with you. I would also add he seems to looking for trouble and is finding it. calling him out on his stuff. isn't the same as the berating you seem to be doing. you have not powned anybody, in reality the vitriolic tone to you message discredits any valid points it may make.

The cashier's race or guessing that she was an older woman, has nothing to do with your complaint. You lose credibility when you start to do races and ages. Myself, I think you are playing a disability card, as well as being a racist. If you have a problem with reading, maybe you should have somebody go shopping with you. Also flyers do tell you when the sales start and the signs probably had that on them too.
