Just got back from the grocery store and was grossed out by this man who touched and handled every single crown of broccoli in the produce section!!

I had to wait on his butt to get out of the way so I could buy some squash. I waited and waited while he picked up every single crown. [shake]

I finally left my basket so I could just walk up next to him to get the zucchini and yellow squash. He never noticed me standing there.. several minutes.

I HAD thought about buying broccoli but I left without it. The teacher in me REALLY REALLY wanted to ask why he felt it was necessary to touch every single piece of broccoli!! [rant]

ANOTHER REASON TO WASH YOUR VEGETABLES!! [dizzy]

Gross - why do you need to touch broccoli crowns - they are pretty much all the same.

And wash your fruit too! not that there is enough waxy crap on it but I am sure many people touch the apples, etc too.

I know!! It was ridiculous! He picked them up and put them back, picked them up and put them back. [shake] They ALL looked good, so there was no reason to do it.

Fruit.. oh yes.. for sure! I use GSE to wash apples and I also have that spray stuff they sell in the produce dept.

We're growing a garden this year. I often wonder with all the hands touching these fruits and vegetables, is rinsing enough?

Must be, cause I'm stil here. [lol]

Tutu,

You are funny. "Move your butt Vegetable Head" [cussing]

I saw this show about somebody that couldn't get out of the bread aisle without squeezing, opening, and even removing endless pieces and putting them back in.

I imagine he's got some sort of Lyme OCD fixation. Either that or he's getting a cheap thrill out of vegie squeezing.

Inquiring minds wanta know. [lol]

LOL! Maybe that guy is on the candida diet and that's as close to the bread as he can get!! [bonk]

2 roads... heheehee.. I was so aggravated when I posted that. Can you tell?? Maybe he DOES have OCD.

Now that is REALLY frightening about handling the pieces of bread!!!!

or maybe skies is right .. he was just reminiscing about bread! [lol]

Don't mean to be gross, but I think about that all the time. And I'm sure it happens.

That's why we should also clean the tops of canned goods. Hard to do.
