From $2 wine to $2 wine, there are many reasons Trader Joe’s has a cult-like following, but I like to think their suspiciously friendly, bell-ringing, Jimmy Buffet-looking employees are a big draw.
Unfortunately, earlier this week, at a Los Angeles area Trader Joe’s, a total Karen decided to make life difficult for these flower-print clad heroes by throwing an absolute fit over having to wear a mask.
And here’s the thing: whether you “agree” with wearing a mask or not, being a petulant a-hole to someone who’s just trying to do their job is beyond childish.
Thus, we thought we’d make a little list of all the funny tweets about TJ’s employees, as our heartfelt apology on behalf of a-holes who are incapable of apologizing themselves. Keep up the good work!
name one mental health professional that could teach me as much about emotional intimacy as a Trader Joe’s cashier

You know you're on a bad date when they all like "Thanks for coming to Trader Joe's!"

The cashier at trader joes was so nice to me that when I walked out of the store I thought "should I go back in"

when the Trader Joe's cashier flirts with another customer I get jealous and buy a second frozen pizza so he thinks I'm having fun tonight

Trader Joe's employees are legally required to scan one item in your cart and say "ooh these are dangerous"
