Why a woman refused to sell me yoghurt

I was out in the field collecting ephemera for my traveling theater project when I dropped into a mom and pop sweet shop for lunch. The sweet yoghurt (Bengali variety) was pretty good, so I asked for a kilo pot (price: US$ 2) to feed guests at home.  The lady asked me how long it would take me to get home. Two to three hours. It’s going to get sour in this warm weather, she said.

It’s nice to find people who care enough about their work to lose a sale for it.
