Perhaps you have a shopping story to share?
We make our own bread, adding various seeds and some wheatgerm to the flour for extra goodness and taste. On a recent shopping expedition to the well-known emporium of all things vegan situated in Chorlton, Manchester, I asked if they had some wheatgerm. From behind his icy glare the sales person (the tall, extremely thin man) said that they didn't sell wheatgerm as it wasn't a whole food. I politely replied that they sell unbleached white flour that has its wheatgerm removed in the process of transforming it from wholemeal flour. His icy glare deepened and he walked away. I just smiled to myself, paid for the other items in my trolley and purchased the wheatgerm elsewhere. Perhaps I should have abandoned the trolley where it was and left the store? From a purely practical perspective it would have been a waste of a journey if I hadn't purchased the other items, some of which aren't readily available where I live. Perhaps I should ask everyone I know who visits this store to look for this particular sales person and ask him for wheatgerm?
All part of life's colourful tapestry, eh!
