Grocery Store

There's something about the local grocery store that's been bugging me for a few years now. It's a nice store with a reasonably good selection of groceries.

Which is why it sucks when you stop by to pick up a few items and realize they're out of the most basic things. Or you find things that expired one year(!) ago.

Take today. These things were on my list but I had to leave without them;
  • Parmesan (expiration date of 4 months - should have more in stock)
  • Orange juice (expiration date of 1 year, no refrigeration)
  • Canned tomatoes (how do you run out of things in cans??)
  • Canned tuna (the expiration date is like ten years away!)
  • Toilet paper ( comment)
  • Chocolate-cake chocolate (all expired a year ago!)
  • Fresh basil (one left, looked like it had a rash, poor thing)
  • Spinach (they rarely have this, and never get it when they say they will)

Am I the only one who finds this puzzling? I understand it might bug me more than the next person, having practically grown up in a grocery store and learnt that this is absolutely unacceptable, but come on!

Supply and demand people, it ain't that hard!
