Paying By Cash Or Picard

| Working | October 21, 2013

(I am bagging groceries and happen to notice a box of Earl Grey tea, sitting at the end of the register next to me.)

Me: *out loud* “Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.”

(There are quite a few customers in the line I am bagging in. A customer in line pipes in, recognizing a popular ‘Star Trek’ phrase.)

Customer: “Right on!”

(The other customers look at us in confusion. Later on in the transaction…)

Cashier: “Wait, did you put three or four of those in the bag?”

Me: “There are four in the bag.”

(By sheer coincidence, the customer and I both say, at the same time:)

Customer & Me: “There… are… four… lights!”
