Resisting at the QFC

Poor QFC manager. Not her fault, perhaps. But I’d like to see some low level managers with enough spine to resist criminal orders from their bosses. In any event, taking out my iPhone camera was enough to convince her to fix the misleading price posters on the tomatoes today.

Some days I just can’t help myself. If it’s a day when I find myself at the grocery store, then they’d better not have a big sign boasting of the low price on avocados posted in front of the boxes of tomatoes which cost a good deal more in hopes that busy shoppers will buy the tomatoes and not notice the price they’re charged at checkout.

I’ve messed with QFC before and won, and even if this was another easy win, it keeps me in practice for when I need to protest bigger things, such as a refugee ban. When I called her attention to the misleading signs, she informed me that Kroger policy required her to post the avocado sign by the tomatoes. Yikes! (But she did admit that a sign for the tomato price should be there next to it.) Well, when I left the store, I noticed that the display had only the tomato price without the avocado price. Good! Perhaps my camera helped her develop a bit of spine for the day.

  1. The scenario at QFC my seem small, but it is in the same league as “random acts of kindness.” This is “purposeful acts of resistance.”
