(I am on my high school rowing team. My boat consists of me, three other rowers, and our coxswain. We are missing our coxswain and a rower and therefore can’t go out on the water. We have to do a series of land exercises which includes running along the river, which is a boardwalk and a series of shops, while the rest of our team goes out on the river. While running, we decide to stop at an ice cream shop, that also sells water ice, along the way to get water ice. I have no money so I hang back while the other two look at the flavors.)

Employee: *probably assuming I was too shy to order* “I promise I won’t bite.”

Me: “Oh, no, it’s okay. I don’t have any money to order so I’m just hanging here.”

(I wait for my two teammates to order.)

Employee: “What flavor do you want?”

Me: “Um… I don’t have any money.”

Employee: “It’s okay.”

Me: “Well, in that case, I’ll have the blue raspberry.”

(He gave me a cup of blue raspberry for free. Thank you, ice cream shop employee! You gave a hot, tired girl a nice refreshing cup of water ice to eat with her teammates.)
