I take some medicines a specialist prescribed me. I fall sick and go to a general practice. Doctor prescribes me something.
Me: So you’re prescribing [medicine]. Is it okay to take together with [substance]?
(I take a generic instead of brand because brand medicine with my substance uses some additives which are generally helpful, but I’m allergic to them. Since generic name is quite bland, I refer to my medicines by substance name, which most doctors recognize).
Doctor: Yes, there’s no problem at all.
Me: Okay, thank you.
I buy the medicines and read the info sheet attached. And what do I read?
“Do not take together with [substance] or other [substance group]. May cause thrombosis.”

Customer: “I need a bouquet of carnations and roses, in pink and orange, with one of these ‘final goodbye’ ribbons, for Friday morning.”

Florist: “Certainly. Do you want to pick it up here or have it delivered to the funeral?”

Customer: “I’ll pick it up here. It’s not for funeral; my son is graduating elementary school and it’s for his teacher.”

(I’m a customer, doing a big amount of shopping in a large store that sells basically everything, from pins, to food, to large appliances, to car parts. Another customer approaches me.)

Customer: “Excuse me, ma’am. Where can I find fruit gelatin?”

Me: *automatically* “Aisle 13.”

Customer: “Thank you!”

Me: *realizing I wear nothing like store uniform* “Uh… How did you know I knew where it is?”

Customer: *cheerily* “You have a big pile of these in your cart, ma’am.”

(I did.)
