Grandma roasts grandson in awesome, and very public, way

A disappointed grandmother has used a supermarket comment card to praise an employee - and then compare him to her less than desirable grandson. 

The note begins by setting the scene. "I was having one of those late night cravings, you know how it is," she began.

"Anyways, I was craving yoghurt covered cranberries and I just could not wait till the next day."

This craving led the woman to her local supermarket, where she met a nice young employee named Nathaniel, who not only helped her find the yoghurt covered cranberries, but also reminded her of just how disappointing her own grandson Tyler is.

"Instead of merely pointing me in the direction he walked me over to the trail mix machines," the impressed woman wrote. "He then helped me navigate those darn contraptions. He even put in the number so I could print out my barcode."

Nathaniel does sound a hundred times better than the supermarket employees I've come across lately. What a nice young man.

And here's where the note gets good, as Grandma starts bagging on her grandson.

"As I was leaving the store I couldn't help but wish my own grandson could be more like Nathaniel," she wrote. "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," Grandma explained. "Whenever I ask for computer help he just tells me to google it."

Come on, Tyler, we know Google is the best way to solve most problems, but she's your grandmother. My mother still thinks typing search terms into a text message is the same as googling, so it's not as easy as the kids might think.

But while she's on a roll, Grandma has a few more things to say about Tyler. "He dresses in all black and it really disturbs me," she wrote. "His mother says it's a phase, I hope so."

Finishing off her note, Grandma has one more dig for her grandson. "Perhaps Ill see Nathaniel again and I can ask him to be friends with Tyler so that he has a good influence."

I'm sure that would go super well.

Supermarket chain Kroger was so impressed with Nathaniel's feedback, they printed out the note and displayed it as their customer comment of the week – for two weeks.

An anonymous imgur user took a photo and shared this gem with the internet. "I hope they never take it down," the user wrote.

Now her hilarious diatribe has gone viral - and, quite rightly, been featured on the US store's Customer Comment of the Week board.

I just hope Tyler gets to read this feedback, so he can take a long hard look at himself.
