Hilarious Grandma Trash-Talks Grandson in Kroger Customer Comment Card

By  | 

When a store employee does something nice for you, it’s nice to let them know they’re appreciated. A Euclid, Ky., grandma cracked up everyone at her local Kroger this week when she left a glowing note about a nice young man named Nathaniel. Nathaniel helped her buy cranberries and was so polite, not like her rude, surly grandson, Tyler.

God, Tyler. Why can’t you be more like Nathaniel?

An Imgur user going by ChickenNuggetsIsGoodForMe found the letter posted as the “customer comment of the week” at his Kroger, and it is hilarious.

“This has been up for two weeks and I hope they never take it down,” he wrote.

The woman’s comment card is the best comment card. Because she starts out leaving a glowing review of a nice young employee named Nathaniel:

“I was craving yogurt covered cranberries and I just could not wait till the next day,” she wrote. “I entered the store and was looking for them. I met a fine young man named Nathaniel Hunter. I asked him if he could direct me to the item I so desired this evening. Instead of merely pointing me in the direction, he walked me over to the trail mix machines.”

Aw, Nathaniel is just a gem.

“He then helped me navigate those darn contraptions. He even put in the number so I could print out my barcode,” she said. “I have trouble with all this new technology and it is nice to know that there are bright young people out there that will stop and help an old lady like me.”

It is nice to know that there are young men like Nathaniel out there helping old ladies figure out the bar code scanner at the bulk foods aisle, isn’t it?

Then the note swerves from talking up Nathaniel to complaining about her own grandson, Tyler, who is not a fine, helpful young man like Nathaniel.

“As I was leaving the store I couldn’t help but wish my own grandson could be more like Nathaniel,” she mused. “I know that’s terrible of me to say as a grandmother. Don’t get me wrong I love my Tyler to death, but he is so rude to me sometimes. Whenever I ask for computer help he just tells me to Google it.”

Dammit, Tyler. Be nice to your grandma.

We all know how annoying it is when someone asks you for information they could easily have Googled, but stuff your surliness. Help your damn grandma.

“He dresses all in black and it really disturbs me. His mother says it’s only a phase, I hope so,” she wrote. “Perhaps I’ll see Nathaniel again and I can ask him to be friends with Tyler so that he has a good influence.”

Wearing black isn’t a bad thing, but being rude to your grandma is not OK. Shape up, Tyler.

I hope the Kroger never takes this sign down. Let it be a lesson to all the Tylers of the world:

Don’t be a Tyler. Be a Nathaniel. Or your grandma will tell the whole Kroger what a disappointment you are, and you’ll wind up famous on Reddit.
