NYC - Mouse Scurrying About An Assortment of Oily Olives At Fairway Supermarket
These olives are the pits.
A revolting video posted on neighborhood blog MyUpperWest.com captured a mouse scurrying about an assortment of oily olives at the Fairway supermarket.
The nauseating footage was shot just after midnight on Wednesday at the olive bar inside the grocery store on Broadway near W. 74th St., the blog reported. The store’s hours are from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m.
“When I arrived at the area with the buckets of olives I was surprised that a man next to me jumped away from the produce and started gesticulating wildly,” wrote Glenn Herman in a letter to the store’s customer service that was posted on the blog.
“I discovered a small rat or mouse happily hanging out in the olive bins,” he added.
A Fairway rep responded with an apology and assured the vermin issue would be “addressed immediately.”
This isn’t the first time video footage showed a rodent on the loose in a Fairway. Earlier this month, the same blog posted video of a rat streaking across an aisle in the same store.
After eyeing a pair of rats for around 20 minutes, the blogger determined the critters were pilfering peanuts.
