I was at the grocery store this week and this is an actual conversation I had with the check out clerk... Now, to be fair, it was SuperTarget, not my usual grocery store. But still.
She's scanning my produce, stops, looks at something and asks, "What is this?"
Me, slightly confused...: "A potato."
Clerk: "Do you know what kind?"
Me: "Idaho? Baking?"
Clerk, now looking at her list of look up codes: "Oh, Idaho..."
She continues with my order...
Pretty soon she stops, inspects a bag of produce and asks, "And what do you call these?"
Me: "Green beans."
