How About Next Time Use Some Conjunctions?

, , , | Right | March 29, 2021

I’m a shopper for online order pickup and delivery, so I’m in an aisle with a few customers gathering the items for my orders. An older lady pokes her head down the end of the aisle and shouts.

Old Lady: “Honey!”

I figure she is talking to her husband or a grandchild shopping nearby. After a couple of minutes:

Old Lady: “Honey!”

I look at her.

Me: “Are you talking to me?”

Old Lady: “Hooonnnnneeeyyyyyy!”

She speaks very slow and drawn out.

Me: “What can I help you with?”

Old Lady: “Where is the HON-EY?!”

Oh, I see. I tell her the aisle number and off she goes. The customer who had been shopping closest to me and listening to the whole exchange, tells me:

Other Customer: “I thought she was calling you, ‘Honey!’”

Me: “Yeah! Me, too!”

I’d later have customers come up and just say “cereal” or “orange juice” to find out what aisle they needed, but so many people here call others “Honey,” it’s a confusing one for sure.
