Verily Learn About Celery

| Working | January 1, 2016

(We had gotten a new cashier a few days prior, and she was still learning the ropes. Particularly the PLU codes for produce.)

New Hire: *holds up a celery* “Hey, [My Name], what’s this?”

Me: *looks over from my transaction with a customer* “4070.”

New Hire: “Okay but… What is it?”

Me: *stops and looks at her for a second* “…You don’t know what that is?”

New Hire: “No. Seriously, what is it? I’ve never seen anything like it before in my life.”

Me: *slowly* “That’s celery.”

New Hire: “Really? Huh… So that’s what celery looks like…”

(I’m still amazed how you can go 17 years of your life and never encounter celery before!)
