Grazing at the Candy Bins

By Katharine Branham

I have seen defiled candy bins at the movies, grocery stores and candy shops. The bins are filled high with bright colored candies, and a bag is conveniently standing-by to fill as desired. What a beautiful sight that is…until you see some grubby hand to mouth feasting.

     The grocery stores are where it usually takes place. Here’s how it goes: Someone walks up unsure of what should go in the bag and then goes for a taste. YUCK! Nowhere that I know of does it say ‘try any piece…we don’t mind’.

     I have seen a shopper eat several pieces and buy nothing. Did I strike a cord there? If I did, you are cheap and nasty. You people need to break that habit and get some manners and morals. Number one -- it is stealing: YES, I said stealing! And two -- it shows a lack of decorum. Get a bag, tie it up, go home, to the movies, a party, or shopping, and eat it. Don’t make us clean people suffer just because you are too lazy and mimicking a cow seems easier. If I have offended some of my readers, I apologize: I was aiming for shame.
