At a small food kiosk I grab some of those “Combo” pretzel things and a bottle of water:
Me: “Ah, here…”
Cashier: [Smiling] Hi! Is that all?
Me: “Yeah.” [I smile back and think to myself: Haha, only I would get some gross snack food and a bottle of water together.]
[Still smiling, she rings it up. She looks at the cash register and is for some reason suddenly a little freaked out. She puts the food on the desk.]
Cashier: “Your… your total is $6.66.“
Is… is it the beard? I bet it’s the beard.
