like bread and shit?
do you just grab the first loaf and run, or do you rummage through to find the one with the most amount of days of freshness left?
I was in the co-op the other day, queueing behind some old lady. She had her eye on some hot cross buns, but just grabbed the top packet, without any prior thought about shelf life. weird.
I very kindly pointed out that the packet she had picked up was best before the next days date and if she was to look a little deeper, she'd find some with 4-5 days of freshness.
she thanked me and we both went on with our days.
so yeah, there is a thread in here.
