Remembering Years of Bad Press at the Park Slope Food Co-Op

Brooklyn Magazine has compiled something called “A History of Disputes at the Park Slope Food Co-Op.”

The motivation?

Well, it’s always fun to poke fun at the seemingly sanctimonious Park Slope Food Co-Op and its long list of debacles or decisions deemed laughable by the media.

The most recent mini-debacle: the Co-Op informed members that if they missed a shift during Hurricane Sandy, the members would be put on alert if they didn’t make it up within the next ten days.

I guess the Co-Op decided not to play nicey nice with all those people who missed shifts. I almost missed my shift the Wednesday after the hurricane because I was completely discombobulated by the whole experience and  the fact that I had a Co-Op shift TOTALLY slipped my mind.

Luckily my supervisor called and we got over there lickity split. She sounded really miffed on the phone.

“I can’t believe you did this on today of all days,” she said. I’m gathering that there were many absences that day.

Check out the story at Brooklyn Magazine. For a laugh. For some indignation if you’re a loyal member and you’re sick and tired of being made fun of. For some social history and light entertainment.
