Mr Produce here.
My wife says I have a million great stories that need to be told. Well I don't know about stories but I have questions. Since we are all friends here I'll consider you all normal. So I need to ask you normal people some questions all about the Norm
--Is it normal to go to the grocery store and eat a handful of cherries and then PUT THE PITS right back in the cherry bags on the table for sale?
--Is it normal to not want to buy the whole cauliflower so you hunt down the grocery guy and have him cut it in thirds where you look it over carefully and just buy a third of a cauliflower?
--Is it normal to ask the grocery guy to pick out mushrooms for a recipe that you have at home?
--Is it normal to tell the grocery guy that he DOESN'T know how to pick out a ripe avocado because he is not from California... SOUTHERN California to be exact, (obviously a northern California person does not know how to pick a ripe avocado).
My wife says that most people do NOT complain to the grocery guy that the prices are too high. Is that true?? Is there a store where the customers would come and go without complaining to me personally about the prices at all the stores in town?
I really need to know. And if I get enough response... I'll tell you all sorts of funny stories from the produce department (like the guy that hunted me down to let me know that the lock to the men's bathroom doesn't work. What fruit or vegetable would you use to fix that?
Or the knock down fights that happen at the back dumpster between several older (70+ year olds) fighting over the moldy day old produce for their chickens and livestock.
Thanks in advance for your normal answers.
