I grew up in the NJ and NY area my whole life, it's safe to say that we are a bit direct, loud and we like our information spoken to us quickly. We are really not that outwardly friendly but, we're good with you and will be your best friend if you can battle us in an argument!
I got to tell you that Publix is a bit creepy, it's got a hint of Stepford Wife it's a bit unreal, and it frankly weird's me out!
When I walk in there everybody is welcoming me and constantly saying hello, oi! I feel like any minute their going to say on the loud speaker, "Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome Ms. Wanda!" Jeez Publix can I just shop alone!
I only go in Publix when I need to use the bank. So, yesterday I had to get hamburger buns and I could not find them Ugh, I sighed, walked over to a guy that looked really busy stacking stuff. I figured he would just tell me the isle number but, noooooo, he stops what he is doing and walks with me to the isle!!! I tried to ask him for the number but, he just kept talking and walking and telling me all about the other breads along the way, WTH!!! Sorry to all my friends that love Publix, I just don't need all that help and friendliness, it's strange for my NJ senses.
Imagine if I needed the feminine product isle, he probably would have said, "Oh let me show you the tampons and pads there on sale! Oh and guess what we also carry disposable douche, what do you need!:)"
Then if that’s not enough they want to walk you out to your car!
Leave me alone Stepford Publix!!!
LOL enjoy your day:)
