A bruising pain

June 19, 2007 at 9:15 am (fury, money)

There is nothing that pisses me off more than opening a bag of fruit bought at a retailer and finding the inner ones bruised. Ok, there are other things that piss me off more but this is pretty high right now.
If I wanted crap apples I would’ve bought them on the street. I pay a bit extra to make sure I have good quality fruit. That’s why I get so completely pissed off when, one after the other, they come out bruised. I HATE bruised fruit.
My mom said I used to throw a complete hissy fit as a kid when she tried to give me fruit that was bruised and pointblank refused to take any from anyone if they so much as hinted the fruit wasn’t completely perfect. Not much has changed since then.
I don’t know what it is but it gives me gooseflesh just thinking of eating a piece of brown flesh of any fruit. Reminds me of rotting stuff. Gross. I won’t even look at a banana that isn’t green.
But I digress – so what am I to do when I get a bag of defunct apples? Can I take it back or should I just insist they open the bag next time I’m there?

    Take it back…even better hellopeter(dot)com them and demand that they pick it up wherever you are or refund your petrol for taking it back yourself. (if you are feeling particularly cranky then ask for insurance and maintenance contributions too). 😉

    Nah okay, I’m kidding (sort of). But the hellopeter thing is worth considering…

    Hmmmm Louisa, sounds like you’ve walked this road before… 😉
