Yesterday I went to the local grocery store, and this is how the conversation between the checker and the bagger went:
bagger - "Did you get the coke?"
checker - "No, I'm not cold."
bagger - "I'm sorry you're cold."
checker - "I'm not cold."
bagger - "Do you want my coat?"
checker - "I said I'm not cold."
befuddled customer (me) - "He asked if you got my coke!"
checker - "Coke?"
befuddled customer - "It was the first thing you rang up."
I felt like I was in the middle of an Abbott and Costello routine. Tell me again - who's on first? I think we might be a couple bases shy of a full playing field.
