Ok so I am posting this on here because most Stay at home Mommies do the grocery shopping....and I need to vent. I hate it when you go to the grocery store and you are looking for something, and you can't find it, or don't know if they have it, so you ask someone who works there. "Excuse me, do you carry_______, because it is not on the shelf, could i find it in another section?'. They then proceed to go to exactly where you were looking at look at the shelf and say..."uhm....I can't see I don't know.....I don't think so". For god's sake really? Thanks Captain Obvious!!! Your a huge hero in this situation!! Ughh!!!!!!

That happened to me with the corn syrup! I went looking through the baking goods aisle, because, you know, it makes sense. When I'd wandered around there, and a handful of other sections, I finally broke down and asked. The first person didn't know what corn syrup was (some kid lol), the second didn't speak English. The third worker looked at me like I was stupid and marched me the the BREAKFAST aisle and I found it next to the maple syrup. Arg.

That is extremely annoying. But one time I went through the checkout line, and I had picked up something that I decided not to buy because the coupon wasn't valid. There I was with my 10 month old daughter screaming, and all these bags that I had just paid for, and she tells me to go return it to the shelf. Now if I was by myself and not carrying anything then it wouldn't have been a problem, but there were workers just standinga round.. is it really my job to put things back on the shelf?!

Yes - I know what you mean! The other day I was looking for toothpicks and couldn't find them anywhere so I asked someone who worked there. He told me they were with the toothbrushes! LMAO! NOT! I found them later at another store in the paper plate section.

I was in the shops A woman was staring at the shelf and could obliviously not find what she was looking for so garbed an employee who was walking past and asked if they had i think it was Heinz backed beans, the guy looked at her and looked at the shelf and said no, well as i shop in this shop all the time i know they do and happened to have some in my trolley, But only because i had just come from the sources isle where i had gone to get Heinz tomato source, and some bright spark had decided to put all the products by Heinz together. Supermarkets love doing stuff like that !!!

203 least you're not asking where you can find everything....

I just moved to a new area and I can never find anything. At the grocery stores where I used to live, I could do my shopping quick and effortlessly. Now, I'm always wandering around confused as hell and looking at all the signs and asking where things are at. I usually get a straight answer like, "oh, that's on isle just passed it!"
