    (I am working as a barista at a coffee shop. Two large hot chocolates total $6.66, which my coworkers and I joke about.)

    Me: “Hi. What can I get you?”

    Customer: “God be with you.”

    Me: “I’m sure He is, ma’am. What can I get you?”

    Customer: “Well, you have those vanilla hot chocolates, yes?”

    Me: “Yes. In fact, we do.”

    Customer: “Oh, wonderful! My dear friend brought me one some time ago, and it was just sinfully good. I have to say it. So when I saw your shop from the road, I simply had to tell my sister to stop. And so, of course, she must have one too!”

    (I recognise the religious nature of the customers.)

    Me: “Would you like anything else with that at all? Uh… these cookies are dirt cheap and really good…”

    Customer: “Oh, no. Mustn’t give in to gluttony, the Lord knows.”

    Me: “Nothing else at all?”

    Customer: “No, thank you.”

    Me: “All right, then.”

    (I ring them up.)

    Me: “That’ll be…” *winces* “$6.66.”

    Customer: *going pale* “Pardon?”

    Me: *sheepishly* “Your total is $6.66, ma’am.”

    (The customer is silent for several moments. She then crosses herself and dashes out.)

    Me, to next customer: “What can I get you?”

    Customer #2: “Tell me, do you get any extra brimstone with that deal?”
