I'm not sure if this lady thinks that we can travel to the future to make bread or what, but she didn't think that there was anything wrong with her question.

I had to just smile, and tell her it was the expiration date, because if I had said anymore, it would have been pure sarcasm. I'm not completely sure that I escaped sarcasm with those few words...
Thanks I needed a good laugh just about now.

You know what's even funnier than that story bakechef? The fact that it isn't a joke someone came up with, it's real life! That scares me. After all, people like her can still vote and procreate. Thanks for sharing!
