Dear Crazy Tomato Lady,

Um, what made you think you could customize your very own pint of grape tomatoes?

All of those pints that are set up on that table? Those are for you to pick up and put in your cart.

They are not for you to open, sort through, pick apart and create a utopian pint of perfectly round, red and ripe grape tomatoes.

Guess what? They have machines and people who have already done the sorting for you. They have been weighed and shipped. That's already someone's job.

As for what's inside? You have to try your luck on what's inside like the rest of us.

Really? You witnessed a woman doing that? Ugh, I hate people in the produce section.

OK, guilty as charged. I've been known to do that with the tissue paper-wrapped Mandarin oranges at Christmas. I hate when you buy a 5-lb box and half of them are already moldy when you get them home. So I pick and choose. Everyone does it.

You see? Us Canadians are really quite hardcore. Ruthless even.

You've been warned ;-)

Yeah, and ditto for the strawberries!

LOL. I have seen people do that stuff and have wanted to say the same with starwberries. Not cool.
