Reply to "LCBO Price Alert"

Interesting experience at lunch today. Went to my local outlet to ask if they could arrange for some bottles at another store to be shipped down to them, since there were only a few left and I knew I wouldn't be able to drive across town to get them. I was asking for 4 bottles - an order that came to roughly $225 (although the value is irrelevant).

The store manager and the PC were off today, so I spoke to an assistant manager (I believe). I explained what I wanted and he immediately started to berate me: "What, you can't drive up there yourself? How do you think the wine gets from there to here? You think it just flies here? No, seriously - how do you think it gets here?? They've gotta put it on a truck that burns diesel fuel. You're going to burn a hole in the ozone layer just so you can get 4 bottles of wine."

This is verbatim. And he continued in that vein for another minute or so.

At first I thought he was joking, but he wasn't. Later he half-heartedly apologized saying, "Sorry if I was rude earlier."
