Safeway...sandwich incident spotlights Grocer's greed! Poorly-trained Security guards a menace!
I wasn't surprised when the news broke yesterday about a young couple who were hauled off to jail for "allegedly" swiping two chicken salad sandwiches while shopping for groceries at Safeway.
Tattler readers may recall that I have reported on the aggressive inappropriate conduct of security guards at outlets in San Francisco and West Hollywood (Pavilions).
I have also personally witnessed cocky belligerent guards stalking, harassing, and overstepping their legal authority.
Complaints to the Executive Offices at Safeway are usually ignored.
Safeway is greedy corporate giant who cares more about their bottom line than customer satisfaction.
Judging by the response (the outcry) to the sandwich incident around the country this past week, it appears that shoppers agree!
Frankly, I'm glad that Safeway employees got with their tits caught in the wringer this week.
Serves 'em right.
We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!
