I was shopping at Kroger about a week ago when I heard a FOX news broadcast over the intercom in the store.
As soon as I got home, I filled out Kroger’s on-line suggestion form to complain about hearing biased news in their store while I’m in there spending $200 on groceries.
I did not leave them my e-mail address on the form nor did I leave a phone number. All I left was the address for our post office box so that they could drop me a line (along with the 157 coupons they send me every week).
Since I did not leave a phone number, you might reasonably assume that no one at Kroger would attempt to contact me by phone.
My mother-in-law called today to ask me what I complained to Kroger about!
We are unlisted, of course, which explains why he didn’t get me. But, apparently, the guy who got my complaint just started rummaging through the Louisville phone book and calling people with our last name.
He told Patsy, my mother-in-law, that he was working on the problem and couldn’t promise it would be resolved, but he wanted me to know they were “considering” it.
It’s great that I made enough of an impression on him that he felt a need to track me down by any means necessary in an attempt to shut down any anti-Kroger discourse I might otherwise engage in.
How crazy is that? I mean, the fact that I didn’t leave a phone number should have served as a hint that I did not want him to bother me by telephone.
Vote here on how crazy YOU think this guy is on a scale of 1-100. Let’s say 1 is the sanest and 100 is chopping-up-your-parents crazy.
I’m guessing him at about a 75 on the loony meter. But, maybe I’m being too hard on him. I mean, he didn’t show up at my mom-in-law’s house, he just called her looking for me.
*By the way, I am not even going to entertain the thought that stalking people in this manner might be a Kroger policy. That would be way too scary, so please don’t suggest it. No, la la la, I don’t hear you, I don’t hear you, I don’t hear you.
