三蚊雞太熟嘅香蕉

唔識食嘅地球人

買了一蔬超熟的香蕉,先至三蚊雞(照片看見的只是其中一半)。但這係霸權連鎖超市,我心裏想點解會賺錢賺到盡。如果有點良心的話,減價就應該早啲啦,唔應該等到啲蕉熟到好多黑點,而且店員提點我托下面,唔好係上面拎,因為咁樣會扯爛。但問心果句,邊個會買咁熟嘅香蕉呀?慳家嘅主婦都會嫌三嫌四囉。咁樣結果就係浪費同埋倒去堆填區囉。真折墮!
諷刺嘅係,最近播第二輯嘅 rthk 惜食地球人2 上一輯2016年有一集(食得唔好嘥)講到百分之五十嘅食物重種植到餐桌中間可能浪費咗 如果批發商、超市、等唔好帶頭唔靚唔要,又唔好賺錢賺到盡,擺到爛先至來減價,也許會互謂商家、消費者和環境三方面!

so i bought 7 or 8 very ripe bananas (half of them were shown in pic) for a dirt cheap price of hk$3, i.e. 0,3€, but am not at all thankful to the big name local supermarket chain, its store manager or the lady in charge of marking down perishable items. the fact is that those 50 or 60 or so overripe bananas sitting on the shelves would very likely end up in the landfill ‘cuz they really really didn’t look appetizing to the consumers, even the smart, money-saving housewives, grannies or bargain-hunting domestic workers. it seems maximizing profits is of paramount precedence that the store manager or person-in-charge wouldn’t lower price until the appearance turn customers off. this is false environmental consciousness from the merchants’ point of view. it might very well not existed at all, any sort of consciousness or conscience in a predatory merchant-consumer market. sad eh?
