HAHA wow... when I worked for Target I used to preach about putting the shelving in correctly for this very reason.

It didn't look like anything was securing the shelves to the wall. WTF?

When I worked at Albertsons I dreams of giving the shelving the push they needed to start a domino effect.

The four-level shelf came with the building and had been used for the 31 years since Superior Liquor



31 years is a long time...

you guys are ridiculous, making such a big deal out of a little spilled liquor. the other top stories on that site include a drug-dealing pedophile, a repeat sex-offender and a murderer (new window). get some perspective people.

I really hate this attitude. So, if there's a bigger story out there, we should all have no response to the smaller stories. Because, as we all know, commenting about things on Fark is what changes the world. Priorities!

Does it make me an alcoholic if, had I seen this happening, I would have dropped to the floor and used my teeth to filter out the glass krill?

Pretty good one. I know you don't feel that way, and would expect everybody else does, also. Yet here we are, and you already have two bites.

Who the hell built that shelf?
I personally, would have anchored it 3 times, every 16 inches, to hold that much weight.
Also, why does it have to be one continuous shelf, rather than several shelves side by side?
 
2011-10-21 03:12:05 AM  
Wow.

I swear I was in that exact same grocery store in Fallout 3.

But I was stealthed and it was dark and I managed to jump the bad guys.
 
2011-10-21 05:37:39 AM  
Wow indeed.

I think my favorite part of the video tho is the hapless guy who is standing in the aisle and then turns to run like hell from several thousand bottles and the subsequent wine tsunami. That would be a great story to tell later even if no one believed you cause you smell like a wineo.

There was a Buffalo fark thread about just that - some guy stole a bottle of booze (I think he had stolen it), accidentally dropped and broke it; and, when the police arrived he was seen trying to sip the booze off the ground with either his mouth or a straw (can't remember which).

I get my perspective from a bottle.
 
2011-10-21 07:13:02 AM  
Nah, if it were whisky (or whiskey) or beer, then it'd be worth crying over... I hate wine and champagne, so this just makes me grin...

i say the same thing to people thanking god for the touchdown, or thanking god for nascar, or thanking god for whatever trifles they are thankful for. there are starving kids in africa! and starving aliens on the planet arrakis.

get some perspective god!

As long as the hard liquor was untouched, I'm okay with this.

Yeah, wine's gross. I don't know why anyone would drink the stuff, myself. I can drink a bit of white, but red wine is just nasty shiat.

I'm not really much of a drinker anyway, but I prefer beer (of course), rum, bailey's, and kahlua.

I'd clean it up. There must have been a few bottles that didn't break and how would anyone know if they happened to find their way home with me?

The only loser in this is the insurance company.

Quite possibly. I'm really not much of a fan of alcohol. It just makes me feel shiatty. My drug of choice is definitely weed. Makes me feel great, and no hangover to deal with.
 
2011-10-21 07:30:52 AM  
I'd pour a 40 on the curb over this but it seems, you know, a little redundant.

Thus making the decision of who to let go to cover the cost of losing ~$68,000 worth of wine that much easier. Of course it is smarter than cleaning that mess up and then getting laid off.

Didn't this happen months ago WITH video as well? The article says there was no video from when it happened months ago...does that make this a second, identical event?

There was a beer accident earlier. Maybe that's what you're thinking of.

If its just wine nothing of value was lost. Now if it was Scotch (insert Vader NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO here)

Wouldn't have happened if it were box-wine.
