From the outside looking in my neighborhood Safeway is really, really nice. It's one of those gourmet ones that was recently remodeled. Inside it's nice. Wood looking floors, nice bins, nice signage, Starbucks with a nice lounging area, etc.
About 6 weeks ago I popped into Safeway to get a few things after being stuck in traffic on my way home. I had to use the restroom in the worst way so I popped in and found myself SERIOUSLY gagging at how nasty the bathroom was.I was even MORE disgusted when I went to hit the soap dispenser for soap and saw that it was open and that there was a long, gross hair inside of it. Um...EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!
I'm familiar with management at my Safeway so I walked over to Customer Service and complained about how horrid the bathroom was. My face was ALL screwed up because seriously...I couldn't BELIEVE the bathroom of a grocery store would be so nasty. I mean dude...THE PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH THE FOOD IN THE GROCERY STORE USE THAT BATHROOM!
The manager I spoke to stated they would take care of it.
I bought fewer things than I would have because I kept thinking of their employees using that bathroom and stocking the shelves.
Day before yesterday I went to Safeway after being in traffic again and had to, once again, use the bathroom. I walked in remembering my experience 6 weeks ago and I was visibly SHOCKED that the bathroom was nasty AGAIN! I got sooooooo pissed and disgusted and, since I had my camera in my purse and I was in the bathroom alone I pulled my camera out and took pictures:
Just think about the employees and customers tracking this into the produce aisle. You know...where produce sometimes falls on the floor and is picked up and put BACK in the bin.
This is a hole in the stall wall that some folks are using as a trash receptacle it seems.
Would you put your baby on that? Sheesh! Would you even BUY baby food from there no matter HOW pretty the rest of the store is after you've been in this bathroom?
This is the nasty soap dispenser. So people have been refilling this dispenser and it's NEVER occurred to them that this shit is so nasty it needs to be REPLACED ESPECIALLY SINCE IT'S BROKEN???????????????
Yes. I'm sure that is the same nasty azz strand of hair that was in there 6 weeks ago.
Health officials are warning all of us to wash our hands as often as possible to cut back on a possible pandemic. Do you think SAFEWAY is helping their employees and customers keep their hands clean after seeing this shit?
My intent was to send them to Safeway's corporate office but when you go to their site, there isn't an email addy and their Facebook page doesn't allow you to send them messages either.
Then I remembered...HEY! I HAVE A BLOG! So maybe...just MAYBE...after seeing these NASTY, NASTY bathroom pictures Safeway will contact me at Monica.Mingo@verizon.net to find out the exact location of this Safeway and then call someone using STRONG LANGUAGE to tell them to clean up the damn bathroom THAT THE EMPLOYEES WHO HANDLE FOOD USE!!!!!
My stomach is messed up again just looking at these pictures and remembering just how awful this bathroom is.
Safeway you get one big huge FAIL on this! Fix it! I'm done with yall for a while. The nastiness is just overwhelming. Your swanky decor means nothing if your bathroom is this.damn.nasty!
When was the last time you visited the bathroom in YOUR neighborhood grocery store? Was it nasty?
