Dear Mr. Abilio dos Santos Diniz, Chairman of Grupo Pão de Açúcar,
You and I both know that I don’t work for your company. Actually, you may not be aware of this fact, as considering the dirty and disgusting state of your São Paulo stores, it seems you are quite removed from the business. However, your employees do believe I work at Pão de Açúcar. Not only do they bark orders at me during the check out process without even a “bom dia,” (probably because I’ve inconveniently approached their checkout line causing them to put down the magazine they were reading or stop the conversation with one of their coworkers) but they expect me to bag my own groceries.
However, don’t worry. I’ve come up with a solution on how you can compensate me. From now on, I will be placing each item that I’ve purchased at your store into an individual bag. You see, we have a puppy now and I could use the plastic.
Thankfully, I’ve discovered another grocery store in the area (Záffari) at which, for the time being, the employees are friendly and helpful. So as soon as I am finished stocking up on puppy poop bags at your stores, I’ll be stocking up on actual groceries there.
