The other night I ran to the store to grab a couple of items we were needing and one of those things were a couple bushels of bananas. Bushels or bunches? Hmmm. I can't decide which to use here and I can't remember what I typically call them. Let's go with bushels. It sounds more fun than bunches.
Anyway, I have to buy a couple bushels at a time because I have two banana-eating-freakazoids living in my home. I can not keep them in stock! And inevitably, every single time I want one, I go to grab it and Husby says, "Oh, me and Levi just ate the last ones."
I'm to the point where I'm about to plant some banana trees in the back yard. On second thought, maybe we'd be better off moving to Caribbean. Eh, I dreamed about a blistering boiling sunburn all over my body last night, so maybe that's a sign I better just stay put.
I need a daily milk, bread and banana delivery boy. Yeah, that's the ticket.
When I was at the store grabbing my couple'a bushels, something unbelievable happened. I was browsing through, trying to find the greenest ones for our second batch when a lady came up behind me, grabbed a bushel next to me, snapped off two bananas like a twig on a tree and went on her merry way.
I stood there in shock as I envisioned sirens going off and grocery police bursting forth and arresting the culprit. She separated the bushel! Is that even allowed? Isn't that against grocery policy and protocol? Aren't you supposed to keep the bananas together in their original little families? How could you just snap some off and leave the rest? Why not just find an original bunch with just two in it and take those? Why take from a perfect bushel of bountiful bananas? So many questions! I just couldn't understand!
And I still don't.
You don't just take and buy 25 grapes from their bunch, so why would you break up the bananas? I feel like it's the same thing! When you break and take from a nice big bushel, the ones that you leave will probably go untouched, unsold and end up being thrown out. I know when I see a lone banana I never buy it. Especially if I can see that it's been torn away from it's original bushel!
Is this normal banana bushel behavior?
Am I the only one who buys bushels in their entirety?
Is everyone else a banana snapper snatcher?
Y'all set me straight! What is proper banana bushel protocol?
