Adventures in Shoprite
So I go to Shoprite and I'm standing and looking at the houseplants. I'm very quietly looking. And I see one plant... moving. I lean down and I see either a really large mouse or a baby rat sitting in the pot with his hand around the stem, chewing away.
I walk over to a guy stocking fruit and I gesture for him to lean toward me and I whisper "There's a mouse in the houseplants." and he gets scared looking. I lead him over and the mouse/rat is gone. I lean down and see a little nose peeking out from behind a plant. When I move the plant, the mouse/rat takes off towards his end and he jumps back, I swear he was gonna scream.
I left the guy to it but I said, "You're not gonna hurt it though, right?" And he says "No! I don't even wanna go near it." As I made my way around produce he was back to stocking fruit and I think the mouse/rat was probably back to eating palm trees.

Needless to say I'll be washing my produce very very well from now on.
