However, shoppers are still up to their antics when buying vegetables:
- Sorting : Nothing wrong with selecting the fresh, young and crunchy vegetables like beans, cauliflowers, cabbage, etc which are usually not pre-packed. I have seen shoppers patiently choosing Green/French beans, put them side by side, measure and put back those which are longer or shorter. Some would press to check the freshness or tear away the first layer (supposedly to reduce weight) of cabbages. Some would even remove the stalks to lessen the weight...how much would such action save in price??
The supermarket employee usually removes the bruised front surfaces of the cabbages before loading onto the display stand
- Abandoning : As like the fruits, one could see packs of vegetables being abandoned in shelves when the buyers decided against them. Sometimes, one could find nicely selected Green/French beans in plastic bag. That person would have spent time selecting the best...but then.....
Common sight where vegetables were abandoned in a 'convenient' other than its rightful place
I do not have any connection with the supermarket/hypermarket either as an owner/proprietor or as an employee. I am just an interested everyday consumer.
