The Old Man and the Seafood
Shoppers meandered around the store in hip waders, shopping carts half submerged.
“How did you come up with this idea?” the reporter asked.
Jeff grinned. “I thought it was about time someone applied the self-pick produce model to seafood. With seafood, freshness is everything. Here, everything is alive up until you buy it. No expiration dates needed.”
An old man shuffled up in oversized boots. “Excuse me, I just need a can of tuna.”
“No cans here, I’m afraid,” Jeff said, throwing the reporter another grin. “Everything’s fresh.” He handed the man a spear gun. “Bluefins are in aisle 30.”

Just what we need to make grocery shopping more “interesting” — amateurs with spear guns. Do I hear an “oops!” on the horizon? 🙂

Funny story, but beneath it you probably have a viable business idea.

Loved the title

Great story Dave, really had me chuckling. 🙂

What’s next, hunting deer in aisle 20, here, have a gun? It’s true, consumers always must be lured in with more and more exotic attractions. Fun story.

Hehe I think most people would stop eating fish if this became true!

Great title, great story. I’d soon slim down if I had to kill my own food.

You can’t get any fresher than that in a store! Amusing and enjoyable story.

Sashimi couldn’t be fresher. What I want to know is how you confine the fish to aisle locations. Great idea. What an imagination.

Only the freshest, please! Great idea…I do not eat fish but it sounds like an interesting way to shop. It also exposes the brutality of the human diet through humor. Imagine what would happen if an animal rights activist got in and freed the sharks! Holy mackerel.

Five out of five Sorry, Charlies.

That’s an innovative approach – trend-setting for sure. Funny story.

Oh my, no seafood for me! Nicely done, Dave. 🙂

Hilarious, David. I can see it now. I don’t think I want to go around amateurs with spear guns, though. Good writing as always. 😀 — Suzanne
