What A Peanut Butter Nutter, Part 2

, , | Right | November 4, 2019

(I’m at the supermarket when I overhear this conversation.)

Customer: “I want to return this.”

Manager: “What’s wrong with it?”

Customer: “It has peanuts in it!”

Manager: “Well… it is peanut butter, so…”

Customer: “I am allergic to peanuts! I almost died just from opening it!”

Manager: “Yes… peanut butter usually has peanuts in it. That’s kind of to be expected.”

Customer: “You should warn people about this! I almost died!”

Manager: “It says in the ingredients list that it contains peanuts.”

Customer: “I shouldn’t have to read the ingredients of everything I buy! There should be a warning that it contains peanuts!”

Manager: “Ma’am… it’s peanut butter! It literally says, ‘peanut butter,’ on the jar! What did you think it contained?”

Customer: “Well… I thought it was an artificial flavor or something. Everything is artificial today, isn’t it? Vanilla flavor, strawberry flavor…”

Manager: “Well, our peanut butter actually contains real peanuts.”

Customer: “That’s why you should warn people! Now refund it!”

Manager: “I’m not going to refund peanut butter because it contains peanuts. If you’re allergic to peanuts, you shouldn’t buy peanut butter. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have work to do.”

Customer: “That’s it! I’ve never been treated like this before! I will complain to the health office about this, and I will never shop here again!”

(The manager just shrugged and left. The customer also left, or rather, stormed out. I picked up one of the peanut butter jars. Not only did it say peanuts in the ingredients list, it actually had an allergy warning that stated that it “contains peanuts.” That alone was quite redundant, but how aloof can you be to actually think that the one thing peanut butter doesn’t contain… is peanuts?)
