My Nose Is Constipated

, , , , , , | Right | December 10, 2019

(I am the weird customer in this one. I have just moved to the US from Norway to go to college. While I am fluent in English and most people don’t notice my accent, I still get the odd words mixed up. I’m standing in line at the college bookstore, with a pretty bad cold so my nose is stuffy and my eyes are red.)

Cashier: “Good afternoon, miss. How are you today?”

Me: “I’m good, thanks, other than being really constipated.”

Cashier: *blank stare*

Me: *smiling more and more insecurely*

Cashier: “Um…” *clicking* “Oh, you mean congested?”

Me: “Ohhh, oh, my gosh yes! I’m so sorry. I got the words mixed up.”

Cashier: “You’re not from around here, are you?”
