    A Pleasing Surprise

    | Wildwood, NJ, USA | Language & Words

    (I am the customer in this story. I am on a camping trip at a boardwalk. I approach an ice cream stand.)

    Me: “Hi! Could I please have a cone of mint ice cream?”

    Cashier: “Sure— Wait. Did you say please?”

    Me: “Um. Yes?”

    Cashier: “Wow! I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone else say please!”

    (The cashier turns to a coworker.)

    Cashier: “Hey, [Coworker]. Have you?”

    Coworker: “I don’t think so. Maybe only kids.”

    Cashier: “Thanks! Here’s your ice cream! Have a good day!”

    Me: “Thank you! You, too!”
