Funny Story: Chile Lady

When I worked in a supermarket's produce department I got a fair amount of complaining when winter came. Summer occurs during our winter for the southern hemisphere, so most of our produce comes from there during that time. We had one lady saying she didn't want NO GRAPES FROM CHILE over and over again to my co-worker Phillip. I told Phillip later that if we got her some chilli from Chile we'd thankfully never see her stupid self again.

  1. That's funny. I'm pretty sure that in an age and place where food is just something you buy at the store, most of us have no notion of growing seasons.

  2. Of course if she doesn't want grapes from Chili in the winter she can always go without.

  3. Not quite sure if there's actually chilli from Chile, not quite sure if they're even used to it, but definitively is a nice story and I would have give her some chilli too.

  8. The grapes of Chile are of the top variety. Chilean wines are
    some of the best in the World. Strange about her objections,
    but they could be political from the Pinochet regime days.
