It was a beautiful Maui morning when I stopped by your fruit stand. You were just setting up and had all your local grown pineapples lined up in rows. “Good morning,” I said. “I just need a pineapple. You then told me that they were $10 a piece. “Wow, that is way high,” I said. “No thanks.” But as I turned around to get back into my car you started yelling and cursing at me. How dare you curse someone for not wanting to buy your absurdly overpriced pineapple! You messed with the wrong local girl!
