Su Sanlang’s expression was calm. He looked at Madam Wang and said coldly, “If you don’t let me check, then please carry your vegetables back. My family won’t take it.”
Making an exception was impossible. Su Sanlang would never do it for anyone.
There had to be rules when it came to doing business. Others would scheme against him. He couldn’t be stupid enough to agree.
Seeing that Su Sanlang was cold and heartless, Madam Wang immediately wanted to cry.
Madam Wang had just started when Su Sanlang ruthlessly interrupted her.
“I’m not your son anymore. Everyone knows about our separation back then. I only accepted the village’s vegetables because we’re all villagers. If you’re unwilling to sell them, I can get them from another village.”
Su Sanlang said this flatly. He didn’t look like he was lying.
In an instant, everyone had a scale in their hearts. All farming families knew how to grow vegetables. If they refused to sell them, other villages could sell them too.
Madam Wang was clearly trying to act helpless and was guilty.
Everyone was paid for the vegetables. They still had to do this business in the future, so they all said, “Granny, stop fooling around. It’s not easy for Sanlang to do a small business. Don’t waste time.”
“That’s right. In the past, you chased him out because you thought he was useless. When you saw that he was useful, you wanted to acknowledge him as your son. How can there be such a good thing?”
Madam Wang’s face heated up and she felt very embarrassed. She looked at Su Sanlang again with an extremely venomous gaze.
Su Sanlang didn’t care. He wouldn’t buy it if she wasn’t willing to let him examine it.
Old Master Su said coldly, “Show him.”
Madam Wang had nowhere to put her face. She roared, “Look, look. Open your dog eyes wide and look.”
Su Sanlang picked up the vegetables and saw that other than the top layer of good ones, the bottom was filled with yellow leaves. His expression was cold as he said indifferently, “I’m sorry, I don’t want your vegetables.”
Madam Wang was furious. “What’s wrong with our vegetables? It’s not like you can’t eat it since it’s a little yellow. If you make sauerkraut, who can tell if it’s yellow or not?”
Su Sanlang looked coldly at the basket full of vegetables. This was more than a little yellow. It was obvious that she deliberately brought out the bad vegetables. How could he possibly want them?
Su Sanlang said coldly, “Since you can eat it, take it home and cook it yourself. Anyway, I won’t accept such vegetables. Next.”
Su Sanlang did not tolerate Madam Wang’s temper and retorted directly.
In any case, the opportunity he gave was the same. Since the Su family was evil, he could not be blamed for not being tolerant.
So many people were watching. Looking at the vegetables brought by the Su family, they all shook their heads. The Su family treated Su Sanlang as a fool. This was clearly a vegetable that was fed to pigs, chickens, and ducks at home.
He was doing business. How could he want such vegetables?
Su Sanlang firmly refused, which made the people who really brought good quality vegetables feel very good.
Madam Wang still wanted to make a scene, but the village head, Old Master Wang, said in a deep voice, “Alright, what are you making a fuss about? I’ve already made my request clear just now. Look at this vegetable that you guys brought. Who would want to buy these? Don’t be unreasonable and affect others.”
Looking at the food brought by the Su family, Old Master Wang felt that it was too much.
Seeing that Madam Wang was still pestering him, for the first time, Old Master Wang felt that Su Sanlang’s betrayal of the family tree was not willful.
The Su family’s actions were really disappointing. He looked at Old Master Su and sighed.
Old Master Su felt his face heat up. He immediately vented his anger and shouted at Madam Wang, “Look at what you’ve done!”
Old Master Su was too ashamed to stay here and turned to leave.
Su Dalang and Su Erlang saw the situation and followed.
Madam Li and Madam Zhou also wanted to leave, but they did not dare to.
They looked at Madam Wang carefully.
Madam Wang was also filled with anger. She gave Madam Li and Madam Zhou a slap each and scolded angrily, “You two vicious women, are you deliberately waiting to see me embarrass myself?”
Madam Wang pushed all the blame on Madam Li and Madam Zhou before using this opportunity to escape.
Madam Li and Madam Zhou’s faces were extremely red. They felt very embarrassed and hated Madam Wang to the core.
Su Sanlang ignored the two of them and was already checking the next family’s vegetables.
Madam Li and Madam Zhou quietly packed up the vegetables and carried them away.
The Chen family had originally done the same, but seeing that Old Master Su’s family had not benefited, Father Chen had asked the family to return with a dark expression. He could not afford to lose face.
Su Sanlang didn’t even care about his own parents, let alone them.
The others also tactfully checked themselves and explained to Su Sanlang with a smile, “This is because we didn’t see clearly. This is not good. We definitely can’t sell it.”
When everything was packed up, everyone took their money and returned to their respective homes. Su Sanlang’s backyard was also piled with a pile of vegetables and cabbages.
They bought 2000 catties today. It was a lot to pack.
Su Sanlang and Chen Hu got busy.
When Madam Zhao and Madam Qian returned in the afternoon, Madam Zhao cooked dinner. Madam Qian made pickled vegetables and pickles. Neither family was idle.
The people in the village quickly found out about Su Sanlang and Chen Hu’s business.
People didn’t think anything of it.
However, the Su family and the Chen family were furious and deliberately said a lot of slanderous words.
Madam Li and Madam Zhou said to outsiders, “When Su Sanlang makes this sauerkraut and pickles, he sells them for eight copper coins. He only spends one copper coin making them and earns seven copper coins. With so many vegetables, he will earn a few hundred taels.”
‘It’s just sauerkraut. Anyone with hands could make them. Su Sanlang’s heart is black. He only paid one copper coin for vegetables after earning so much.’
Similar words spread throughout the village in just a few days.
At this moment, the Chen family and the Su family suddenly started to collect vegetables and cabbages. They paid three copper coins for two catties. It was more than Su Sanlang’s family.
The villagers did not sell their vegetables immediately. They were still waiting for Su Sanlang to speak. For this reason, the village chief, Old Master Wang, specially came to find Su Sanlang and Chen Hu.
After entering, Old Master Wang explained his intentions. After saying that, he looked at Su Sanlang. “Sanlang, give me a message.”
The Chen family and the Su family were going to join forces to do business. They were also preparing to sell sauerkraut and pickles. Su Dalang, Su Erlang, Chen Long, and Chen Qiang had all gone to town to rent shops. Coincidentally, opposite Su Sanlang’s shop, they had even named it ‘Sheng Hao Wei’.
Su Sanlang was very calm. He looked at Old Master Wang and said, “Grand Duke, since we’re doing business, you can sell it to whoever you want. I won’t raise the price, and I won’t change it. Which family wants to do business has nothing to do with me.”
Su Sanlang’s stance was clear. If the villagers were unwilling to sell it to him, he could buy it elsewhere.
Old Master Wang saw that Su Sanlang was not in a hurry at all. He had some confidence in Su Sanlang. He said, “Okay, I understand what you mean. I’ll tell everyone. Those who are still willing to sell to you will continue to send them. Those who are unwilling will not be forced, right?”
