Putting it on a shirt doesn’t make it true

I’ve never been impressed with the help at our local Kroger which is probably why I’m always so glad when I do get someone that takes more than 4 seconds to assist and is actually pleasant.

Recently I’ve noticed that the new Kroger shirts all say, “our #1 goal. Highly satisfied customers”…

Sorry guys, but putting it on a shirt doesn’t make it true.
