So tired, no time to post. Archived post today. A favorite of mine. Hope you like it.
So I have read about The Food Whore and her horror at how people act in buffets or other serve-yourself venues, but I had never experienced it first hand. I have certainly seen many, many, many other versions of stupid. Just not this specific example.
I went to Safeway for lunch because I simply adore their soups. As in I will do a little dance for their delicious roasted corn chowder adore their soups.
They have plenty of pre-made containers of soups for purchase which can give you two hearty meals, but they also always have four piping hot ones for you to select in case you just can't get to a microwave or stove. They offer you ladles and little spoons and sample cups to help you taste and make your decision.
I already had my mind firmly placed on my booty shakin' corn chowder, so I figured I might as well have a quickie sample of the other four. I went to go get a taste of the Italian Wedding soup when suddenly a finger cut me off and dipped it's way into the soup, only to be quickly retracted with a high yelp to my side.
"Ow! It's hot!"
I just stared at the woman as she sucked her burnt Italian Wedding finger. I knew my eyes were as big as dinner plates. It was a full on stare.
She looked at me and angrily pleaded her defense, "It's too hot! This soup could hurt someone!"
I finally snapped it together, "There's a ladle and sample cups to prevent that."
"Well, I didn't want that much, just a small taste, but the soup is too hot."
I just kept staring for a second with my mouth open like a caught fish. Should I go into the health laws in place? The rudeness and utter disgust I was feeling? How she would like it if I stuck my fingers into her food? How she was a total fucking moron for touching something steaming hot to begin with?
I saw a Safeway worker some up and start talking to her as he took out the soup, but I didn't really hear what was said. I just grabbed my corn chowder and left. I did not taste the other soups.
What the hell is wrong with these people?
