I wonder how many people, when buying loose coffee beans at Whole Foods, purposely enter the PLU of a less expensive variety when weighing their individual bag on the self-serve scale. Further, I wonder how many people wonder that. I also wonder if anyone has ever tried to smuggle a smaller item, like a cruelty-free lipstick, in a self-serve bag of coffee, although if for some reason, the cashier suspected something, that would be pretty hard to explain away. But for the coffee bean "sitch", the cashier won't know one bean from the next, so it's actually very easily done.
