All Gown Up

CUSTOMER: (holding a package of ground veal) Is this pork?

ME: It's veal.

CUSTOMER: So.....lamb?

ME: It's calf.

(Blank stare from the Customer)

ME: It's....ah....very young cow.

CUSTOMER: So like a baby.....cow?!

ME: Basically.

(She gives me a look of disgust and throws the veal down)

CUSTOMER: How can you be part of an industry that would do that to a baby?! I’ll just take ground beef.
