    Question: You're buying bananas in the market. You find a bunch of bananas that looks quite tasty, but one is bruised. Do you buy the bruised banana or pull it from the bunch?

    Story behind question: I had a break between my classes today and went to the market to buy a couple things (I can't stand another meal of black beans and rice). I go to pick out some bananas, find a good bunch, pull off one from the bunch and set the rest in my basket. [enter crabby soccer mom]

    Soccer Mom: Did you just pull off the banana and put it back?
    Me: (sleepy-eyed and hungry) yeh? *puzzled*
    SM: [insert lecture about me being a wasteful teenager] Do your parents know you aren't in school?
    Me: (apparently looking about 15 years old) Eh? My parents know I'm graduating from college in 2 months *gives annoyed look and walks away with yummy bananas*

    I apologize for this being completely random...but it was pretty darn random in the store as well.

    Would you ever confront someone in the market about their shopping practices? :confused:

    Since you typicaly buy Bannanas by weight I'd say it was ok. Pluss you shouldn't expected to purchase substandard produce.

    That's funny because I felt like being a weirdo and nearly took my camera in with me! I was thinking I could take some pictures and work on dof and perspectives...but there was a sudden downpour and I don't trust my bag (and I don't trust myself in wet flip flops on a slippery floor...)

    My wife actually likes bananas a bit bruised, so it depends.

    But I think you were right in puling it off if you didn't want it. I've done it when I just want to buy less than there are in a bunch. In the markets here, you can have 1/2 a melon, for example, if you want... so why would you have to nuy the whole bunch.

    This woman was silly.


    (Now I have a Weird Al's song in my head...)
    Have a banana
    Have a whole bunch
    It doesn't matter if you already had lunch
    Just eat it!
    Eat it!
    (To the music of Beat it!) :p

    if they were buying Otter meat I'd scream, shout, point, shake my fist at them and ask them just what the hell they are thinking

    you should have tried to make the lady feel bad

    my mother died in a bad accident involving bruised bananas , we were living in brazil at the time, and what seemed like a bruised banana was actually a poisonous millipede nest inside the banana. she was bitten and died a slow excruciating death, now everytime i see a bruised banana it reminds me of my mother. im sorry if me getting rid of what i have the right to choose bothered you...thanks for bringing up the past. :run off sobbing:
