NORTH BAY — A recent Facebook post about price matching peppers at No Frills has provided some much needed relief for hundreds of North Bay soccer moms who have nowhere to direct their frustration.
The public post, from March 24th, can be read here.
WARNING: the post contains a surprising amount of Machiavellian level villainy in the form of “giggling,” “smirking,” and the refusal to price match a bag of Mexican peppers.
The local Karen population is simultaneously livid and euphoric.
“Finally, something to be upset about!” writes “full-time momma bear” Sandra H. “Ever since the Swiss Chalet closed due to the pandemic I’ve had no one to yell at.”
“Well, I think it’s atrocious,” says fellow Karen and self-professed #bossbabe Stacy G. “They should be ashamed of themselves. That’s why I shared it with all my friends with the heading ‘xX DISGUSTING! Xx.’”
“I also tagged the local Winners because I haven’t been able to yell at the manager there in two weeks and I don’t want her to get comfortable.”

The cashier who served the pepper matcher posted her side of the story, but it appears to have been lost in the sea of fuming Karens.
“I think they’re just happy to have a distraction from the fact that selling Scentsy isn’t considered an ‘essential service,’” says supporter Hillary O.
“On one hand, I understand how someone could feel that price matching might save them some money in a tough time, but on the other hand you’re doing it at the expense of other people’s patience and time, in a grocery store full of stressed out, over-worked employees who are genuinely frightened of catching a disease which could, at best, seriously hurt them or, at worst, kill their elderly loved ones.”
“I don’t care if you’re a civil servant, nurse, officer, doctor, or firefighter – creating a public post with the aim of ripping down a business providing an essential service during a literal worldwide pandemic over a single bag of produce, and then asking people to share it, is damn near psychopathic.”
“So, I don’t know – maybe just accept that you’ll have to pay full price for a $4.00 bag of peppers, thank the cashier, and then get back in your Volvo and go home.”

Thanks for that! After reading the Facebook post yesterday I felt for the manager and cashier who had to deal with the “pepper match”. As if they don’t have enough to worry about.
“Scentsy is not an essential service”
Awesomely written. Love it! So so true.
You are my hero ???
This. Article. Is. Perfect.
If this is news, I can’t take another week of isola5io, I’ll go stark raving bonkers. All for a bag of peppers, I hate like hell to think what would have happened if it was a steak. Get a grip folks.,
I agree with Jimmy. Find something better to do with your time and get a f#%@ing life. You’re the the ones working in the grocery store dealing with all this shiet.
Funny how she’s deleted all the posts regarding how she behaved like some crazy psycho and she should be ashamed of herself. To think this chick is a nurse, lord help us!!!
upset by the original post
I called the store next morning
told the gal to tell all the employees
They are all hero’s
Ensuring we have food on the table!
Grateful She expressed she was the one in question and it didn’t go down like that at all!
I say to the angry Price matcher,
You have made a fool of yourself
the rest of the city praises those who risk their health for our behalf!
What a waste of oxygen this woman is! I just saw the post on facebook how she used orphans to raise money and pretty much went on a vacation. Now she’s being ignorant to grocery staff during a pandemic! Get over yourself you attention seeking loser.
Hahahahaaha. I so needed this rite now. Covidiot stay at home cuz u ain’t no hero.
