I was checking out at the busy Super Market, and the cashier was having problems. The register ran out of paper, the scanner malfunctioned, and finally the cashier spilled a handful of coins.
When she totaled my order, it came to exactly £22. Trying to soothe her nerves, I said,
"That's a nice round figure." Still frazzled, she glared at me and said,
"You're no bean pole yourself."
