    (He trails off and takes a few steps back from the counter separating us.)

    Pharmacy Clerk: “Uh… do you know how much this costs?”

    Me: “If it’s the [Brand Name Medicine], then it will be about $170.”

    (He looks relieved and returns to the register.)

    Pharmacy Clerk: “Sorry. On my first week on the job, a customer assaulted me after hearing the price of his medicine.”
