I've had it. I went to this health food store because they are close to my house. Every time I leave, I'm shaking my head in disbelief. Today took the cake... check this out: Q: What's the difference between the product with Glucosamine and the one with Glucosamine & Chondroitin? A: The other one has Chondroitin. Q: Is that important? A: Probably... Then this heady exchange occurred: Q: Why would I choose a protein supplement with whey versus one with soy or rice? A: Well, one has soy which comes from soy, the other comes from rice. Q: (proceeding with disbelief) So why would someone choose soy over whey? A: We get a lot of Soy People in here. Q: (still in disbelief...) So, why do they choose to be "Soy" People? A: (laughing) I dunno! OMG! I won't waste your time with more accounts of their stupidity. I was then misinformed on the basics of meal replacements, vegetable versus shellfish sources, and intestinal gas. I have 9 check marks on my $100 Purchase Club card. I need only spend another $100 to get another $100 free. It's totally not worth it. Clearly, they have a problem firing "nice" people and replacing them with competent staff. P.S. Be prepared to crash your grocery cart into the exit door since he won't spring for an automatic door.
