I work at an organic grocery store and this old man came up to me and informed me that a carton of milk he bought the other day had gone bad and that he wanted a new one. He didnt have a receipt (or the sour milk for that matter) but i let him take a new one anyways cause we’re very chill about things like that at my workplace and i’m not gonna piss a customer off over 1€. I thought this was over and dealt with but he kept complaining to me that, in fact, all the milk we sell goes off too quickly and that we should stock longer “best before dates” etc etc blah blah so i pointed him towards the 0.5 liter milk cartons we sell, but he said that no one in his family likes that kind of milk. In fact, they all liked different kinds so they have 4 different kinds of milk open in their fridge at all times. I didnt say anything to that but holy shit? No wonder they go bad sometimes if there’s only one person using each carton over like…a week or however long it lasts them? You’re supposed to use milk up within a few days of opening it and a longer “best before” date won’t save your wasteful, decadent ass in those regards either jfc.
im sorry but what's American milk culture :c
