*Two customers approach an employee while one tries to convince the other to ask him a question.*
Customer: Excuse me sir!
Employee: Yes ma’am?
Customer: Do you have letters?
Employee: Excuse me?
Customer: Do you have letters??
Employee: What…kind of letter?
Customer: You know, like…letters.
Employee: …I’m sorry but I don’t know what kind of letters you are looking for.
Customer: You know! Like letters to put on things.
*The Customer makes repeated gestures of grabbing something imaginary and placing it against a flat vertical surface. As if she is placing magnets on a fridge.*
Employee: I don’t think we have what you are talking about.
Customer: Like letters, to stick on stuff.
*She continues the same gestures.*
Employee: No…I’m sorry I really don’t think we have any.
*Customer seems rather upset we don’t carry her “letters”.*
