Customer: This is disgusting! You support LONG LINE FISHING?!?!
Me: I’m sorry?
Customer: This sign says the tuna was long line caught. That’s irresponsible. Do you know what that does to the environment?
Me: Long line isn’t destructive. They bait individual hooks so they can bring up only what they need. I think you’re thinking of trawling. They drag a net along the ocean floor, it’s the only way to catch shrimp or bottom dwelling fish.
Customer: That’s what I meant. I thought it was called long line fishing.
(She looks at the counter for a few seconds.)
Customer: This sign says the flounder is trawl caught. That’s disgusting. How can you support that?! I’d like to speak to a manager. You need to tell your corporate offices to stop this!
Me: I’ll get you a manager.
