A slave revolt nearly broke out at a grocery store in Georgia. Not to worry, Obama supporters; it was quickly put down:
Cindy Nerger, 28, who relies on food stamps to feed her family, said she was brought to tears after being embarrassed by a manager at a Kroger store in Warner Robbins, Ga.
“He said, ‘Excuse me for working for a living and not relying on food stamps like you,’” Nerger said the manager told her.
The man’s comment came after Nerger and two other store employees disagreed over whether her total purchase was eligible for food stamps — the employees had insisted that roughly $10 of her bill was not covered. She said the manager ultimately told the employees to “just give it to her.”
After Nerger then stressed that she had been right all along, the man made his “working for a living” remark, she said.
Kroger quickly fell to its knees to apologize for the rebellious manager, groveling in an official statement:
“We deeply regret our customer’s experience. The comments made were not reflective of our company’s policy. We value all of our customers. Please know that we have taken immediate steps to make sure something like this never happens again.”
The manager has been transferred. His future with Kroger does not look promising.
It would be surprising if Nerger isn’t searching for the greediest lawyer she can find. Being brought to tears should be worth at least six figures. She was offered a $15 gift card and turned it down.
