How do you know someone works/shops at Whole Foods?

Don't worry, they'll tell you.

I went to whole foods once out of curiousity. The closest one to me is over an hour away. I know walmart has the "people of walmart" stigma, but whole foods has its own breed. I don't know if they are hipsters, yuppies, or whatever but I am pretty sure they could sense that I didn't belong. Maybe it was my lack of reusable shopping bags, the look of confusion on my face when I turned each corner to find 47 versions of lentils, or my eyes popping out of my head everytime I read a price. Either way they knew I wasn't one of them and hrumpfffed at me accordingly. One time was enough.

ransack.: I've never even seen one of these "Whole Foods" stores. What the hell does that even mean?


Think of Whole Foods as a Krogers were everything is labelled to show its pedigree.  "Organic Onions hand picked by Well Paid Laborers $10/lb"

Now, imagine Kroger customers moving slowly through the store asking you whether these beans can be used in a veggie chili that includes Thai spices.  And you would know the answer or at least be able to lie convincingly.

Lastly, imagine the check out lane at Kroger where the cashier scans a pint of milk and the display says "Milk-Pint $7.50" and the customer not screaming :"How can you do this to me?  I have to work three hours to pay for something like that!"  Instead, the customer says "Humph.  Daddy wants me to eat good.  I guess his credit card can take one more."

So fark hates McDonalds because it is unhealthy and shows no corporate responsibility to customers but hates whole foods because they attempt to ban unhealthy products and that shows that they are snobbish?   Pick one, you morons.

The Hipster channel was SO much better when they were still a public access show.  They've really sold out since going mainstream.

ransack.: Also, I work for Kroger, and this line about this Whole Foods place being "making it the largest grocery store in the country and indeed the world. " is absolutely 100% false, Kroger is the largest grocery retailer, and second largest retailer overall behind Wal-Mart and slightly ahead of Home Depot, and this place is not even in the top 10


That line was talking about walmart not whole paycheck

Short version:

Whole Foods has a limited selection, and probably doesn't carry what you really want to buy.

sendtodave: Pocket Ninja: I thought Yuppies and Suburbanites shopped at Whole Foods, not Hipsters.

"Hipster" just means "anyone who thinks they're better than me."


Mormons are Hipsters?
Mind blown.
