Im a butcher and the people that special request the smallest things really annoy me. "can you take this skin off of this chicken" "can you cut this turkey leg into 1/3" "can you take the fat of this bottom roast". The most common request that we get is to remove the skin from whole chickens, when we sell.... already detailed chicken for like .49 more.... Chicken is a HUGE concern in terms of cross contamination so we get all of our chicken pre packed (at the store I work at) so we ONLY deal with beef etc, all of our cutting blocks and saws etc are made for beef. I get it, we get paid to do this but its just annoying after we clean up with all the cutting boards and knives etc to have some upper class posh lady who finds it gross to touch raw chicken come and ask us to clip the wing tips off of her chicken. While my diet has changed ALOT and my views on animals have changed along with hunting, my deep inner vegan side of me still thinks that if you cant handle the idea of cutting raw meat or skinning a chicken (raw not live) then MAYBE just maybe you shouldnt be paying someone else to do it for you. I have high respect for hunters as they generally kill what they eat and dedicate alot of time to this practice, but I have zero respect for lazy people who walts into the grocery store, opt out of spending an extra 50 cents to have SOMEONE else take the skin off of a chicken breast.
Had a customer ask for crawfish one day, I asked "oh you like crawfish, thats not very common around here" she said "I love it, but I get my boyfriend to peel them for me because its gross to me" ???? I have a huge issue with the large disconnect alot of Americans have with where their food comes from, I have more respect for the person who has seen slaughterhouse footage and or hunts that understands how their food came to be and accepts that, than the person who is willful ignorant on the subject. Do people really just think meat and poultry grow on trees or something?
Also im not here to debate dieting or anything like that
TL;DR - if you cant handle the ways animals are prepared for food, if you cant **** cut a raw turkey leg into 1/3 then maybe you shouldnt be eating it, there are plenty of other sustainable diets.
