So I went to Trader Joe's with a co worker during lunch, and I purchase a bag of Turkey Jerkey to keep in my desk as a snack. Around 330, I get munchy and decide to open it. MOLDED, not ehh maybe.. MOLDED, green stuff growing on a few of the pieces at the top of the bag.
I debate just tossing it since I can't really make it back to the TJ's by work since I didn't drive, but decide to return it at the one near my house.
When I get there and tell them all the dude does is stare at me like I'm crazy and ask if I want a new one or my money back. I mean, yes I would've enjoyed eating the jerky I spent $5 on, but really I was concerned maybe that whole batch was moldy or something. He didn't ask what store it came from, write down a batch number, apologize or anything. I thought that was weird.
I go grab a different bag, of jerky and head to yoga. Once home from yoga in my rush to go shower, I just leave the TJ's bag on the kitchen counter. When I get go back into the kitchen later, I find that Jax the cat has helped himself to a good portion of my jerky.
I'm not quite sure what the point of telling this story is, except for that it is a bit amusing and I STILL have no turkey jerkey, and is it weird for a grocery store to seem disinterested when they find out their food has MOLD ?
