And how!!! Not to derail, but two stories -
This past fall, I worked the farmer's market selling for the McVean Farm up here...Let's just say that the following were two very typical conversations I had with customers:
Customer: "Do you have any Eggplants?"
Me: "No, sorry egglplant has been done for quite time."
Customer: "I need eggplant"
Me: "Sorry, it's pretty late in the season..."
Customer: "But...I NEED eggplant..."
Customer: "What are these little pumpkins for?"
Me: "Sugar Pumpkins! Good for baking pies!"
Customer: "How much are they?"
Me: "3 dollars."
Customer: "Can I have it for a dollar?"
Customer: "How come?"
Me: "The farmer would lose money."
There were a lot of conversations like this. I thought perhaps this was just confined to the market, and then went to Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago.
So, the gelato counter is right beside the bakery counter. And like many gelato counters, they can give you little tiny samples.
This one woman walks up to the bakery counter (after budding in front of me) and asks the woman for a small sample of each of the brownies.
The woman behind the counter thinks that she wants four small portions of each of the brownies so that they would equal one brownie. A nice accommodation, I thought, and she put a brownie price tag on it.
The woman actually said - "Oh, I didn't want to pay for them..."
The woman behind the counter rolled her eyes, took the little box back, took the sticker off, and gave it back to this woman, saying, "You might as well have them, they're no good to me..." The customer actually then got ANGRY at the woman behind the counter!!!
Sorry for the long winded-ness, but Oakville, you have a beautiful city, but some pretty entitled people there!
