Customer: “What is your name?”

Me: “My name is Carolyn.”

Customer: “No. Your name is Carol-INE. Do you mind if I call you Caroline?”

Me: “Sure?”

Customer: “Thanks, Carol-INE! Have a good day!”

Cashier: “Hello, how may I help you today?”

Dad: “Yes, I would like the Big and Nasty Burger, please!”

Cashier: “Excuse me?”

Dad: “The Big and Nasty Burger!”

Cashier: “Um, do you mean the Big and Tasty Burger, sir?”

Dad: “Yes, that’s what I said! The Big and Nasty!”
