he young man needs to be lect
ured on how to bargain sensibly.

Police are searching for a motorist who beat a 24-year old woman selling white asparagus because he was upset about her asking price for the coveted springtime vegetable. The prices for white asparagus, sometimes called "edible ivory", fluctuate wildly during the short springtime season. The man screamed at the woman that her asparagus was overpriced. He then punched her in the face and threatened to unleash his attack dog at her. She fled and called police. The motorist said her prices were totally over the top.

He didn't need to beat the woman. If he didn't like the price, he could always walk away. It's as simple as that!

They are sometimes available at Safeway. Green asparagus is very common in all big groceries here.
