"Shopper: 'No, no, it's fine, that's not why I did that, I just wanted you to know so you could check.'
"Me, hesitating, because we put out each tomato by hand and don't put out ones that are rotten, obviously, because we're not shitty at our jobs: 'Oh, OK. Well, before you cut into it, did it look at all like it was rotten?'
"Shopper: 'Well, it was squishy, but no, there was nothing on the outside.'
"Me, not saying, 'Squishy like a ripe tomato, maybe?': 'OK, well…'
"Shopper: 'Like I said, I just wanted to let you know so that the farmer can check the insides before you can put them out.'
"Me: *Stares, mouth agape, wondering what tomato X-ray vision she believes we possess to check the tomatoes for only-on-the-inside rottenness*" -- Nathan Niekowicz
