More and more supermarkets are pre-slicing or "shaving" the popular brands of cold cuts for quick sale at the deli- I prefer my deli meats/ cheese to be sliced fresh- something about this pre-sliced stuff that's been sitting in a bin all day with how many hands and other matter in and out of the case.....But lately I notice "attitude" from the deli staff when i ask for it to be freshly sliced......Pardon me for the inconvenience but with most of this hovering around $8 a pound and higher, please slice it for me when I ask, rather than the pre-sliced trafe you are trying to pawn off on me.............am I being picky or do you agree??
