This Customer Should Try Peanuts As Her Blood Pressure Is Through The Roof

, , , , | Right | June 29, 2020

I am giving out samples of homemade peanut butter in a grocery store.

Me: “Good morning, ma’am. Please try some fresh home-made peanut butter!”

Customer: *With disgust* “Ugh, peanut butter has so much cholesterol in it!”

Me: *Pleasantly* “I’m sorry, but peanut butter doesn’t have any cholesterol in it.”

Customer: *Clearly offended* “What do you mean?!”

Me: “Well, cholesterol is a molecule found in the cell membranes of animals to help keep it more rigid. Plants, such as peanuts, have a sturdy cell wall protecting it; they have no need for cholesterol.”

The customer seems to get angry that I clearly know what I’m talking about and she doesn’t.

Customer: “Well! Peanuts have lots of fat, then!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, they do have fat.”

The customer left. I sighed.
