AN Aldi worker has revealed the day of the week they dread the most because customers line up outside the store before opening time.
The irate employee backed up her dread with an amusing photo of customers queuing outside her work a half hour before it opens.
"Omg it’s 8:30 let’s wait outside the grocery store!" the worker captioned a photo they posted on Reddit last week.
The hilarious picture showed seven people with their trollies lined up outside an Aldi store ahead of their morning shop on Wednesday.
And that's because Wednesday morning is said to be the best time to grab bargains.
One employee said this was the time new products are released and when produce goes on sale, according to Taste of Home.

"Wednesday is obviously the worst day literally 20 people will wait outside, same on the weekends," the worker, who goes by the username Ok_Significance4188 on Reddit.
"This is a regular occurrence for us," moaned another worker.
"These people see me slinging produce and running to grab boxes yet still try to pry open the doors."
"I swear Wednesdays look like Black Friday at my store," quipped a second.

"During the beginning of Covid we had people start lining up a half hour before, but that was because we only allowed so many people in the store at one time," said a third.
Another user said her store "always has a c*** ton" of people waiting outside before opening time.
"They just sit in their cars," they wrote, adding: "I swear people really have nothing better to do than go to grocery store early as f*** in the morning. It seems like no one has jobs."
It comes as a chef has told his TikTok followers two items they must buy at Aldi.
