• My grocery local store has a similar sign imploring us, for floor safety reasons, not to try to make a smaller bag of grapes from a bigger bag of grapes. We are instructed to ask for help from an employee to move grapes from one bag to another.

  • Or just do what rational grocery store managers do–put a big trash can next to the sweet corn. People are going to shuck the corn anyway to ensure they don’t get a rotten ear.

  • “Due to slip and fall issues…”

    Translation: “Due to slip and fall lawyers…”

  • Do they sell this by the pound? If so, that’s a clever way to make people pay more.

  • @Dave Eggers: No, as the sign says, the corn is being sold by the ear, at 5/$4.00(Canadian).
