After waiting an inordinate amount of time for someone at the Balducci's deli counter to help us and the man ahead of us in line, we ask one of the six people behind the other counters if anyone is working in this area. The man making sandwiches points to the man behind the fish counter. We ask the man behind the fish counter if he can help us with a meat purchase. No, that's deli, not meats, and he refuses to move. When we go off and flag down the manager, said manager imparts this to us with no prompting:

Manager: Tell you the truth, I shop at Whole Foods.
Us: That's a shame, Balducci's was once a great name…
Manager: It's nothing but a shell now. Since Bear Stearns took over, they've just tried to squeeze every drop of blood out of it. I could go sell flowers in the park and make more money.
