As a family we saw this sign and it spurred a fair amount of conversation among us and even other people. The differing points of view on this sign were of great interest and I want to share what others were saying and my big takeaway.
The first thing one of my daughters asked was “who doesn’t know how to pick a strawberry?” This was a great point of view and a reasonable one provided the person already knew how to pick a strawberry. One of the people working there overhead her question and chimed in “everyone knows how they pick a strawberry. This explains to them how to properly pick a strawberry!” She went on to explain “this sign also tells them how to keep a berry in the refrigerator and keep it fresh for the longest time possible.” Someone else over heard this and when the worker stepped away leaned over and said “It doesn’t really make any difference at all how you pick a berry.”
My takeaway is we all know what we think we know to the limits of what we know. Most people will do something the way they were initially taught to do something. The next question is whether they were taught the correct way to do that thing. People learn to do many things incorrectly and until they are taught the correct way they are doomed to failure. This often comes down to directing where a line begins, how tall you must be to get on a ride or many other things. There is a way people do things and a right way people do things.
