You know how grandmothers occasionally spout off surprisingly savage burns, while still maintaining their adorable and innocent grandma exterior? Well, one grandmother just pulled this particular stunt when reviewing a grocery store employee, and the internet is 100% loving it.
Recently, Imgur user ChickenNuggetsIsGoodForMe stumbled upon a rather hilarious sight while visiting a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky: a “Customer Comment of the Week” sign, featuring a letter from a local grandmother.
The letter in question describes the woman’s wonderful experience with an employee named Nathaniel — whom she clearly wishes was her grandson.
The letter in question reads:
I was having one of those late night cravings, you know how it is. Anyways, I was craving yogurt covered cranberries and I just could not wait till the next day. I entered the store and was looking for them. I met a fine young man named Nathaniel Hunter. I asked him if he could direct me to the item I so desired this evening. Instead of mearly (sic) pointing me in the direction, he walked me over to the trail mix machines. He then helped me navigate those darn contraptions. He even put in the number so I could print out my barcode. I have trouble with all this new technology and it is nice to know that there are bright young people out there that will stop and help an old lady like me. As I was leaving the store I couldn’t help but wish my own grandson could be more like Nathaniel. I know that’s terrible of me to say as a grandmother. Don’t get me wrong I love my Tyler to death, but he is so rude to me sometimes. Whenever I ask for computer help he just tells me to google it. He dresses in all black and it really disturbs me. His mother says it’s only a phase, I hope so. Perhaps I’ll see Nathaniel again and I can ask him to be friends with Tyler so that he has a good influence.
Wow. Only a grandma could throw such expert shade while simultaneously sounding incredibly sweet.
Some Imgur commenters couldn’t help but cook up conspiracy theories, saying “It’s actually written by Nathaniel’ s grandmother.” Some people even declared that the note must have been written by Nathaniel himself.
Me? I may be a skeptic, but I also believe that this grandmother’s disappointment in Tyler is very, very real. (I also 100% believe that she thinks yogurt-covered cranberries are a “zany” late-night craving.)
Here’s hoping that Tyler steps up his game soon, otherwise he might find himself losing out on a prime Thanksgiving dinner spot, thanks to the infamous Nathaniel.
