Very Cheap Behavior

| England, UK | Friendly | July 27, 2016

(I will regularly use what could be described as a discount supermarket, partly because they are so cheap, but also because some items are so much better / fresher than bigger shops.)

Coworker: “I would never shop at [Cheap Supermarket].”

Me: “Really? I go there all the time.”

Coworker: “Ugh, no, why would you risk your life buying shoddy food?”

Me: “I wouldn’t call it shoddy. Besides, they also sell a load of branded items.”

Coworker: “Probably fake.”

(I figure I’m getting nowhere so I drop it. Lunch time rolls around and I unpack my lunch.)

Coworker: “What’s that?”

Me: “This is a mini pizza, fresh this morning; I also have some sparkling water, nuts and a chocolate biscuit.”

Coworker: “Are you going to share that pizza?”

Me: “Oh, you wouldn’t like it. It’s from [Cheap Supermarket].”

(He, a grown man, actually had a strop, threw his sandwiches around, and sat in silence for the next half hour.)
