I saw a special snowflake at Wegman's last night.
In the usual Wegman's manner my store has an area of beautiful loose fresh veggies, so that people can bag their own. Special-Snowflake-Perfect-Greenbeanus combed very slowly through the loose green beans with his fingers, touching each bean at least once, I'm sure. He carefully chose one bean at a time for his bag, until he had what he deemed a sufficient quantity.
I watched him out of the corner of my eye as I got all of my vegetables and fruit, amazed at the length of time he spent picking over the green beans. I had been looking at the beans earlier. There was nothing wrong with them - they weren't shriveled or browned.
In the realm of Special Snowflakes this guy is pretty minor, but I do think he was gross. Don't most people take handfuls of beans, and maybe throw just a few back? He didn't look particularly clean, and he basically wiped his hands over all of the beans.
I'm not a gardener, so I don't know if fresh green beans would bruise from the picking that this guy did. No one else could get beans very easily while he did his thing, either, if anyone still wanted any after seeing his behavior.
