My niece and I went to the supermarket after I collected her from nursery,
I told her she could have a gingerbread man so ended up going into the bakery just outside the supermarket.
When I went in there was a lady behind the counter who walked off just as I got close to the counter to the side of the store where the ovens were, another worker was cleaning the surface and I sent my niece with some money to ask for a gingerbread man and to pay for it.
She turned round and said I'll serve you in a second which was fair enough but some minutes passed and I stood looking at all the biscuits and cakes. When I had for the millionth time looked at the gingerbread man I realised all the buttons were made of icing and my niece loved smarties to pick off as its the only bit of chocolate she really gets.
I picked my niece up and walked out of the bakery but what is really funny is that if this worker hadn't wasted her time in serving me and the other one hadn't walked off I wouldn't have thought twice about it and would have purchased the item before I realised what the problem was.
Instead I got 2 gingerbread men where one worked out as the same price but was thicker, softer, nicer and had 2 button smarties on.
I'm sure though that she probably thought I was the rude one for not waiting to be served, if only she realised what her mistake was.
Have you ever left a store because they took too long to serve or you realised the item wasn't quite what you thought it was?
