Who Knew?

Yesterday, I went to Whole Foods. In the middle of the day. Normally, I only get to go to the grocery during peak shopping times, like after work or on weekends. Imagine my surprise when, as I was walking around the store, a store employee came up to me and said, "I see you have a list. Can I help you locate the items on your list?"

What? Seriously? This never happens on the weekends! The only thing I needed help finding was the food coloring, which it turns out they were out of. I wished I had had weirder things on my list, so I could have taken full advantage of her offer, but I pretty much know where things like shrimp and pasta are kept.

Too bad this was pretty much a one-off for me... I don't anticipate having more time off at home during the week for a long, long time. Sigh. Back to weekend madhouse shopping.

who knew indeed! You wouldn't get that kind of service in any of our supermarkets (I'm assuming that Whole Foods is a supermarket...)

I've never had that happen! Guess it pays to shop during the week day when the rest of the world isn't fighting for their inch of the aisle!

I shop in Whole Foods regularly and I've never had this happen to me either, but they are super helpful whenever I'm looking for something and always very nice. When I check out, they always ask me if I found everything I was looking for...I've always wondered what would happen if I said no? Would they send someone to go get what I couldn't find?

Paisley, yes, indeed, it is a supermarket.

Jayne, I have wondered the same thing!
