Me: “Hello! How are you today?”

Lady: “Oh, I’m fine. Is there a sale on ribbon today?”

Me: “Yes, we do!” *starts scanning items*

Lady: “Hey, wait. I thought the ribbon was on sale?”

(I take a quick look at a catalogue and find what’s on sale.)

Me: “Oh, looks like only the yellow-labeled ribbon is on sale.”

Lady: “Only the yellow-labeled?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am.”

Lady: “How do I tell which ones are yellow-labeled?”

Me: “…”

(This lady was a teacher.)
