broken meat-pies for sale...would you buy one?

chg
Thanks for your Opinion.
in answer to your questions...my complaint was based on both...that the patties were broken in pieces and 6 days out of date.
I just felt offended that a supermarket that prides itself upon saving its customers money everyday(it does that by means of a recording that is repeated every few mins which for me gets on my nerves)but then it allows its workers to put outdated broken food for sale.
again as a regular customer I felt offended by that.
OK call me an ass condemn me for getting quite upset with the worker responsible for putting the patties on the shelf,
But I Felt I Had Valid grounds for complaint.
Because Like Everyone I Have Basic expectations when I Buy Food from a shop.
I expect it to be Fit for consumption( Now No one can argue with that surely?)
I Don't Expect the food to be out of date...and in this case the patties were 6 days out of date.
so that's a week and one day and although there were no signs of mould growing, I was still upset that they were put out for customers to buy.
again I am a man With certain standards when it comes to food and if that is wrong then so be it...I ain't planning to lower my standards any time.
OK I regret raising my voice when the assistant attempted to convince me that it was all due to human error.
Sorry I just refused to buy or accept that as a Valid excuse.
Because as A Member of staff charged with putting out food for sale it is natural to expect The Staff Carrying out Their duty in a Way That Reflects A Certain Standard Right?
Well When I saw The Broken Outdated Pies I was Surprised and Felt I Had A Right To Draw It To The Attention of one of the staff.
and I Must Mention That When I Did He Did Respond immediately and even called his colleague who was responsible for putting the patties out and His response was Kind of OK I'll Remove Them but didn't apologize.
OK I May Come Across As Demanding, Hard, But I meant Well Honestly.
And I Just want to see Standards Raised So That I no longer Have cause for complaint when I go to buy some food.
OK the chances are I will have cause for complaint and in that case human error on the part of the shop staff can be used but in the case @ Hand I refuse to except That simply Cause I reason that the guy must have known the patties were out of date?
and surely the shop standard does not permit out dated food to be put out for customers to view and buy?
After All What if the person complaining turns out to be a under cover reporter and uses their experience To Draw Public Attention via The Media That A certain Supermarket is Selling Out Dated Food?
Can you Imagine The Shop Manager Shaking the hand of the Staff member for being careless and bringing his employer into disrepute?
It has happened before and it caused embarrassment for that supermarket surely?
But Sadly they continue to be careless.

broken meat-pies for sale...would you buy one?

this morning I visited my local super market and saw some Jamaican patties for sale
so I decided to buy one but I noticed that many were literally broken in pieces despite still being inside the food wrapper.
then I noticed They Were All Out Of Date.
Some Were Meant to be Eaten by The 11TH OF Jan and others the 15th OF Jan.
and So I decided to Speak to one of the assistants and he apologized but then made What I considered to be a Weak excuse by saying that his colleague had made a Human error.
I didn't Accept That and asked him if he would buy a broken out of date pie?
and he said no he wouldn't
so I then asked him why his employer would think the public would buy them even if they were labelled to be sold for half price?
he still insisted that it was all down to human error and then suggested I buy a fresh one instead?
I turned down his suggestion and walked away.
I must say I felt quite upset and although I regretted raising my voice I still felt that my complaint was justified even though I didn't buy any of the broken out of date patties.
how would you respond in a similar situation?
I always feel upset when I see broken food in supermarkets for sale.
Because I consider that to be unacceptable as well as uneatable especially when it is a pie of some sort.
once the pastry is broken it is in my view uneatable and I don't think those should remain on a shelf for sale to the public.
I think it is disrespectful and when one considers the fact that when the pie was made
wrapped and boxed and sent to a supermarket for sale it was as one would expect it to be.
not all broken and out of date.
if a pie maker attempted to sell such a thing to a shop the shopkeeper would naturally refuse to buy it
so why does that shop keeper then expect their customers to buy it?
please share your Thoughts?
was I too quick to complain?
or was my complaint justified?
