I went to the supermarket to do my weekly shopping. The cashiers at this market are usually pretty friendly, but this one must have been having a hard day.
Cashier: Excuse me, sir, this lane is for 15 items or less. It looks like you have more than that.
Yong: No, actually I have exactly 15. I have some coupons, too.
Cashier: Just put those down on the belt and push the cart through, please.
Yong: Okay. Can you tell me how much these potatoes are per pound?
Cashier: I’ll have to do a price check. Do you have a club card?
Yong: Yes, here it is.
Cashier: Swipe it through the machine, sir. Your total is $47.52. Debit or credit?
Yong: Debit. Could I get cash back?
Cashier: [sigh] How much do you want?
Yong: I’d like $40.
Cashier: Paper or plastic?
Yong: Paper, please.
Cashier: Are these tabloids yours, too?
Yong: Uh, yes, those magazines are mine.
Cashier: Do you need any help out?
Yong: No, I’m fine. Thanks.
