To Steal A Phrase

, , , | Right | March 19, 2018

(I am a customer, shopping for a new shirt. I’ve picked up a few to try on, but I can’t see one of the ones I want in my size.)

Me: “Excuse me, but do you have this shirt in a large?”

Employee: “Let me go check in the back.”

(She goes to the stockroom and returned a moment later with a shirt.)

Employee: “It was the brown, right? Here you go!”

Me: “Oh, great! Can I steal that from you?”

(Then I realize what I said.)

Me: “Oh, my gosh! I mean, ‘buy!’ ‘Can I buy that from you?’”

(I did end up buying the shirt.)
