D made some lovely tomato soup yesterday. This morning, he lovingly reheated it and poured it into a flask for me to take into work for lunch. So in order to make more of a lunch of it. I decided to walk over to the local supermarket to pick up some bread rolls. While I was in a queue waiting to pay, the cashier says to the woman she is serving:
Do you know what kind of melon this is?
Woman responds confidently: Yes, honeydew.
Cashier says: Are you sure?!
Woman responds: Yes! Of course
But it was not, it was Galia, the mottled rough callous skinned melon, not the smooth, gold, scented Honeydew melon. I felt like ‘butting in’ and telling her ‘no, no it is not a honeydew melon, it’s a…..' but I decided not to. Some people just do not take kindly to being pointed out as wrong, especially in public. So she ended up paying £2.00 for what should have cost her around £1.00
I don’t know much, but I know the difference between these two melons. I'm not a food snob, am I?
