    Default Gross, Gross, Gross

    I stopped by a local Middle Eastern store today to pick up coarse
    semolina for the couscous I am making later this week.

    The store has been around forever. I have never had a problem until today.

    I bought 3 bags - about 2 lbs each. 3 dollars each.

    Tonight I was putting them away when I noticed a funny dark spot inside
    one of the bags. I opened it up and tried to grab the mystery item with
    the tip of a knife and I saw that it was a worm. The bag was also
    cobwebby. I checked the other two bags - also infested with worms.

    Totally grossed me out. I tossed them all into the garbage can outside.

    I will stop at the store tomorrow and ask for my money back. I hope they
    understand that I just didn't feel good about bringing a bag full of
    worms BACK into their store. Plus, I didn't really want to keep the bags
    in my house either.

    Luckily, there are two other markets on the same street where I might
    find the semolina. I will be more careful choosing next time.

    I once found small worms of some sort, white pupae like creatures
    crawling on bags of beans at a small neighborhood market, not a 'liquor'
    store, the people running it did not have the permits to sell any
    alcohol. But its one place in my local area i now avoid even though i
    think it has changed owners, it has to be over priced to stay in business.

    I saw some obviously poor young woman there once spending 50 - 100
    dollars trying to 'shop' i still regret not taking her aside and telling
    her where she could get better, less expensive food a few doors away.

    Put it all into a microwave and zap them for a couple of
    minutes. They die and become harmless Sheldons.

    WTF does whether it's a liquor store have any bearing?!?!? Are you

    I hope you die, but first watch your loved ones die, slow and
    painfully.

    Well, I just couldn't stand knowing they were in my kitchen. The store
    is reputable. If they don't believe me then they've lost a customer.

    So put them in a plastic bag and take them back. Chances are, if they have
    more on the shelf of the same age they are infected too. Bugs are common in
    grains.

    And in that statement, the true Sheldon is revealed.

    Sheldon, I hope you live long and prosper. I also hope you get out of the
    closet one of these days just long enough to get that ****ing cat off the
    counter.

    I kind of wondered that myself. I've never seen a liquor store that sells
    bags of beans. I've seen grocery stores in a few states that sell liquor
    but never been anywhere near the beans

    I figgered it must be that area, if so many stores of that ilk. I
    wonder what they will say? Their response might color MY desire
    to shop there in the future.

    I would have put them in Ziplocs and taken them back. I took milk
    back that was sour before the "sell by" date - once. I have since
    changed brands.

    Well, I had put the three bags in another plastic grocery bag and put
    them in the trash outside.
    I decided this morning that I would grab them and bring them with me to
    the store this afternoon.

    I am heading out in about an hour. I am curious about how they will react.

    Hopefully they'll be glad you pointed out the problem. All the bags they
    have might be infested...

    Please let us know how it goes. When I was a teenager, I bought a can
    of sesame seeds and it was full of tiny, white worms. I did not buy
    sesame seeds for a couple of years. lol
