In this little valley, we have only one grocery, a JayC Food Store, which is now a subsidiary of Kroger. There are a number of problems in that store. Two of the major ones, I THOUGHT, were wheelchair access and a consistent lack of sale items.
Today, I have realized that there was a problem that was far less obvious but far more serious. They have 12-14 inch subs on sale for $3.99. Granted, you don't get them your way and they may have been sitting in that case for a couple of hours but at $4 they probably wouldn't sit here for long. I got two, one roast beef and one turkey. When I opened up the roast beef to put some mayo on, I was greeted by a clot of dirt on the lettuce that had even rubbed off onto the bread.
When I asked at the counter for a second roast beef sandwich I was told they couldn't make one because, "We don't have no bread."
Now I'm glad they didn't.
I have to ask, "If they don't wash the lettuce (or, presumably, the tomatoes), what else don't they wash before handling the food they hand across that counter?
