A to Z – Crust

Okay, first of all, seriously, there really is a quote for everything.
Second, a late post but I’m still getting it in because I will not be defeated by the A to Z Challenge!
Third, crust, or the objection thereof, is seriously one of my pet peeves.
I totally witnessed this the other day at the store.
A grown ass woman standing at the deli asked the deli lady if all of their sandwiches had the crust on them. Not even kidding. The deli lady very politely explained that all of their sandwiches are pre-made, ordered in bulk and come with the crust on. The grown ass woman gets pissed and says, “I guess I’ll have to go to a real deli then.” And off she went in a huff.
Here’s how that scenario would’ve played out had I been the deli lady.
Grown ass woman – Do all of your sandwiches come with crust on them?
Me – Um, yep. As you can see our sandwiches are not wrapped in steel. They are wrapped in plastic wrap, plastic wrap that you can see through. So yes. Yes, all of our sandwiches do come with the crust on them.
Grown ass woman – I guess I’ll have to go to a real deli then.
Me – Well I guess you will. A real deli that doesn’t happen to be in the middle of an Albertsons’ grocery store!
And PS honey. You’re a grown ass woman. Not a five-year-old.
Clearly, I do not play well with others.
I’m guessing this whole “I don’t like the crust” thing starts in childhood, at least I’m hoping it does…
My kids never fussed about the crust on their sandwiches but they did ask for them to be cut into “butterflies.”
– Corner to corner at all corners. –
I did, however, witness other kids fussing about the crust on their sandwiches. They’d whine for their moms to cut it off and seriously, a couple of the kids had total meltdowns that the crust was even on to begin with!
So, here’s my question to all of you.
Crust or no crust on sandwiches?
If a little kid was at your home eating a sandwich and threw a fit about having crust on his/her sandwich would you cut it off for them?
I seriously want to know.
A busy day makes for a long day which makes for a late post. I hope you’re all enjoying your week thus far and that it only gets better from here on out!
Hey, another question.
Did your March go out like a lion or a lamb? Ours was “baaa-u-tiful!”
