Something funny happened at the Grocery Store....

I just got back from taking my DSIL to the bank and the grocery store. When we were in the produce section, they had some of the redest, prettiest, biggest bunches of radishes I have ever seen. So, I grabbed a "bunch" of them. When I got up to the checkout with my radishes and a few other purchases, the YOUNG checker looked at them as if she had never seen radishes before. The price was .79 a bunch, which she did not know. When I told her they were .79cents each, she counted each individual radish in the bunch, and charged me .79 for each one! That bunch of radishes came to over $17.00!!!

She was so embarresed when she found out, that I really felt sorry for her.
But it was

You are so right! She looked young enough to still be in high school. My DGD will be 15 in September, and this young lady didn't look much older than that!

I think our local grocery store "tries" to teach them what produce is what but I swear some of them act like they have never seen a veggie. Thank goodness for the little stickers on fruit. I have had to explain loosel eaf lettuce many times. They have no idea what it is. I had one once that did not know what broccoli was. Oh my.

I think this is funny and sad. Funny that she counted each one, but sad that she didn't know what a radish is?!?!

The younger cashiers here do that "what the heck is that" look with turnips. It's really funny, but then I see all the variety of produce and I don't think I know them all either!

I've seen this so many times with the young checkers, too. I usually make a point of trying to go through lines with older female checkers...is that being prejudiced???

Last week I bought cabbage and got charged for green leaf lettuce. Still came out to about the right price, so I didn't go to customer service. I do make it a practice to check my slip before leaving the store and you wouldn't believe how many times there is an error on it!

Counting those radishes is too funny, though!!!
