Unto Others

I remember when I had to

I remember when I had to explain radishes to a teenage cashier at Krogers. I felt old because I suddenly became motherly. I gave him a recipe for radish and butter sandwhiches and lectured him on how important it is to know basic veggies. He rolled his eyes, as to be expected when a 40 something lady tells a young 'un to get with it!

Incredible Edibles

An interesting social evolution that people under a certain age no longer recognize food in its original state and/or are totally unfamiliar with foods that don't come in a styrofoam container. I've had similar experiences to yours where a cashier looks at my produce as if I've just presented her with a dog turd to ring in. It would be easier, I suppose, if they just grew vegetables with barcodes
