Safeway Decides to Understaff at Night-Too Bad for You

At around 9:30-10 pm if you feel like getting some ice cream, or want to do your weekly shopping at Safeway, be aware that the managers don't care if you have to wait 25 minutes to check out. Recently there was one, and last night two, cashiers. The lines were huge. One night last week there was just one cashier. I was watching my ice cream melt while I waited on an endless line. I left my cart with my friend and knocked on the manager's door. There's a big window, I could see him and he could've seen me but he refused to look up and acknowledge my presence. He never answered the door. When I went back to my cart I still had to wait fifteen more minutes to be checked out. Tonight there were two cashiers, and again, lines snaking down into aisles. Once again my ice cream melted while I waited to check out. You would think that Pleasanton, being the headquarters of Safeway, would have a model store, but you would be wrong.
