(Back in high school, it was common for music students to sell chocolate in order to afford to do things in their program. I am at lunch and spot someone with a box of chocolate.)

Me: “Hey, do you have any [flavor] left?”

Student: “Yeah. They’re one dollar.”

(I dig through my wallet and realize I only have dollar coins.)

Me: “Here you go.”

Student: “I can’t take that.”

(There is a pause, as I don’t know what to do.)

Student 2: “Here, you can give me the dollar coin and I’ll give you the dollar for chocolate.”

Me: “No, it’s fine. If you don’t want my money I won’t force you to take it.”

(I had a friend in band who took my dollar coin happily, and had no clue why the other student wouldn’t.)
