When I first moved to my new place, I noticed a can of kidney beans that the local 7-11 had on a clearance rack. They looked fucken old and I wondered why anybody would ever buy them. I moved in early September, 2009. Nearly a year later, the beans were still sitting there. 12:42pm.

I knew that the date on the bottom had to be either a best before or a packed on date. I wasn’t sure which, and looking at it gave the impression of June 4th 2001. Over nine years ago. Surely not.

The only way I could be sure that number was in fact a date, was to get a ‘control’ sample. I went to Coles later that day for a comparison. 6:58pm.

Considering the year 2013 is still a while away, it means the date is printed YYMMDD. So, that means the beans at 7-11 have been there since fucking 2004. Six years. SIX YEARS. Just throw them out.
