Chapter 141: Snatching Business 2

It was too salty, and the sauerkraut tasted strange, nothing like what she’d bought at Shi You Wei.
Sheng Hao Wei’s sauerkraut tasted worse than her own, and the woman pulled a face.
Did they want seven copper coins for that? She won’t eat it even if they give it to her for free.
Seeing that the woman was about to leave, Chen Long panicked. He stepped forward and grabbed the woman’s hand. “You can’t leave. You’ve already tasted it. How can you not buy it!”
Chen Long’s actions shocked the woman. She said in a panic, “What are you doing? Are you trying to force me to buy? This is not delicious at all. I can’t leave if I don’t buy it? What kind of logic is this?”
“I don’t care. If you tried it and you didn’t buy it, then why did you try it? There’s no such thing!”
Chen Long was very insistent. This was his first customer, yet she was still so picky. If she didn’t buy it, what would others think?
Chen Long’s actions also attracted many onlookers.
Chen Long said angrily, “Fellow villagers, tell me if this makes sense. How can you not buy it after tasting it? You even said that ours tastes bad. Aren’t you deliberately ruining our business?”
The woman was so angry that her face turned red. She gritted her teeth and said, “I didn’t say anything wrong. It’s disgusting. You were the ones who said that your food is the same as Shi You Wei’s. I asked if I could try it. You were the ones who gave it to me to taste. It’s not delicious at all. Is it a crime for me not to buy it?”
“You guys refused to let me leave and insisted on selling it to me by force. Who would dare to buy anything from your family in the future? Everyone, tell me if this makes sense.”
The woman was furious. She was disgusted. If she’d known she was going to be forced to buy, she wouldn’t have eaten. The thought of the dirty fingernails of the man who’d been chopping vegetables just now made her stomach turn.
Now she really regretted it.
“How could it be different? That sauerkraut from Shi You Wei should have belonged to our family. That boss is our biological brother. And the person who made the sauerkraut is the wife of his biological brother. It must taste the same.”
Su Erlang frowned and said.
After he finished speaking, Su Dalang added, “Yes, this taste must be exactly the same. I think you just want to eat our food for free and go back on your word because you don’t have the money to buy it!”
The taste was definitely the same. Chen Long and Chen Qiang had personally said so.
Therefore, this woman must have deliberately wanted to eat for free without paying. They were not to be trifled with and let her take advantage of them for nothing!
“How is it the same? You guys are sick.”
The woman was furious, but when she saw the four fierce men, she felt a little apprehensive.
She looked at the crowd of onlookers and gritted her teeth. “You won’t let me leave if I don’t buy it?”
Chen Long nodded. “That’s right.”
Chen Qiang also looked at the woman and said, “I see that you’re deliberately trying to discredit my family’s business. Are you doing this on purpose because you’ve received benefits from someone? Let me tell you, we have a heartless brother in both families. Our parents have already severed ties with them. This skill came from our family to begin with. Even if the taste is a little different, it won’t be much different. There must be a scheme behind this.”
The woman was so angry that she had nothing to say. If she didn’t buy it today, not only would she not be able to leave, but she would also be charged with an inexplicable crime.
Looking at the aggressive four, she could only admit defeat. She said, “Fine, I’ll buy it. Just treat it as if I’m unlucky. Give me a catty of everything. Cut them all.”
“It’s just that you want me to buy it. I’ll buy it. Stop giving me all these messy charges. You said that Shi You Wei should belong to your family. I really can’t tell.”
“Some of you here must have bought sauerkraut and pickles from Shi You Wei before. Have you seen the woman cutting vegetables with black mud under her fingernails? They wash their hands before cutting vegetables, and they let customers taste them for free. If you don’t like them, you don’t have to buy them. Look at the four of them. Their hands aren’t clean, and we can’t taste them for free. Tsk tsk…”
The woman took out the money, paid quickly, and took the things.
Chen Long and the others subconsciously stopped. Su Erlang immediately went to find water to wash his hands.
Su Dalang greeted the surrounding people with a smile and said, “Brothers, let’s buy some home to eat. It’s delicious and not expensive. It’s even cheaper than Shi You Wei.”
The people were hesitant.
At this moment, the woman holding the sliced sauerkraut and pickles said, “Everyone, come over here and try some. Have you eaten sauerkraut and pickles from Shi You Wei? Come and try them for comparison. Today, I must clear my name.”
“I didn’t get anyone’s benefits to ruin other people’s business. Everyone saw me buy this. Please try it. If it tastes good, you can buy it. You won’t lose out if it doesn’t taste good, and you won’t be forced to buy it like me. It’s better than forcefully buying and selling it.”
The woman took out the few pickles she’d bought and offered them to the onlookers.
Everyone saw that she was serious and also took a little with two fingers to eat.
Soon, they all frowned and spat it out.
“Guys, I didn’t lie just now, did I? I, on the other hand, fell for a scam. If you want to buy it, go ahead. Anyway, I’m never going to buy it again. Pfft—”
The woman felt better. She spat and turned to leave.
Everyone shook their heads. “It’s not good. It’s not as good as my own cooking.”
“I’ve tried Shi You Wei. It’s far worse than that. It’s not the same at all. I’m leaving…”
People shook their heads and dispersed. The front of the shop quickly became deserted.
Chen Long, Chen Qiang, and Su Dalang’s faces darkened.
They waited for another two hours in vain. A few customers said that it was not delicious after tasting it and did not buy it. After waiting for so long and not selling a single catty, Su Dalang and Su Erlang could not help but flare up at Chen Long and Chen Qiang.
“What’s going on? Didn’t you say that the taste was exactly the same? Then why is it that Su Sanlang’s side sold out so quickly, and no one came to buy ours until now? No one was even willing to taste it, and no one would buy it after tasting it!”
Su Erlang questioned him angrily. They could force a customer to buy, but they couldn’t do it to everyone. They could blame it on the customer if only one person said it, but everyone said the same thing. That must mean there was something wrong with their things.
The ingredients and cooking methods were all done by the Chen family, so it was all the Chen family’s fault.
Su Dalang also looked angry, waiting for Chen Long and Chen Qiang to give them an explanation.
Chen Long and Chen Qiang refused to admit their mistakes either. The two of them looked at each other and Chen Long said firmly, “There must be nothing wrong with our things. Someone must be behind this.”
Su Dalang said fiercely, “I’ll believe you guys for now. I’ll buy some of their food tomorrow. If it’s different, just wait and se
