What are the most memorable comments cashiers or even people in the store have made about your shopping cart filled with fruit? I'll start:
"Do you have a pet monkey?" -Cashier
"Do you own the juicing business next store?" -Cashier
"Mango Man!" -Head of Produce
I have a little Chinese place around the corner and they dont speak much English. I went in with a Chinese friend and they said to her: "you know that strange man? He buys all our banana's and potatoes!" or something like that, I'm not sure exactly what they said but my friend was laughing pretty hard when she told me. they think I'm strange because of the amount I buy, fill up a whole shopping basket with banana's a couple of times a week, they have to weigh it in 3 lots! Also sometimes buy a mass of tomatoes to make myself home made tomato sauce.
At a fruit shop, when I was leaving: Well, I have no more fruit to sell today, I can come back home early
Guy: "Are you making a banana pudding?"
Me: "Nah, I just really love bananas. Is there any better reason than that?" *smiles*
I always get asked if I have a pet monkey or if I'm making banana bread xD
Only one person understood that I eat this much fruit. :D
Several obese cashiers in the last 14 years have said to me stuff along the lines of 'Thats a lot of fruit! Are you worried about your health?'.
I wish I had a hidden camera to film my face and theirs.
Yesterday someone in the restaurant where I work asked me what I had for breakfast...I replied about 8 bananas, 10 persimmons and 2 large papayas...should have seen the look on their face :D And then once they had processed the information...'Oh no that's very unhealthy! That's far too much sugar!' I replied 'Man, I run on sugar!'...much to the man's disgust :D
"Are you making banana bread?"
At my local co-op I splurged on some beautiful heirloom, in season, local tomatoes. My cashier said " Are you SERIOUSLY going to spend that much on tomatoes, I would put those back, you should put those back! My Goodness I would never pay that much for a vegetable, thats just insane!"
My total was only 12 dollars.
Today I bought a crate of bananas and the cashier asked ,"you want another one??"
That was new.
