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.

Me: “…T-thanks.”


Is… is it the beard? I bet it’s the beard.
