Businessman: No. [ he holds up a small bag ] I just have this little guy. I don't think it would fit.

Businessman: How much?

Clerk: Twelve cents.

Businessman: That's fine. Just charge me for the bobcat.

Clerk: You could just return it, Sir.

Businessman: I just watched "The Avengers". It was, like, $7.

Clerk: Yes, Sir. There is an option where you can choose to either pay $7 or $119,000.

Businessman: Okay. Then, I picked $7.

Clerk: Very well, Sir. You'd be the first one to choose that price.

Businessman: I... find that hard to believe.

Businessman: Wait, wait... isn't that your...? Okay, I do NOT have time for that at all.

Clerk: Visit with our tax advisor?

Businessman: That did not happen.

Clerk: He may have peeked in while you were sleeping.

Businessman: Uh... that creeps me out, but I didn't notice him.

Clerk: But he'll be very disappointed to hear that. But I'll remove the charge. Would you like to donate $1 for the Relief Fund for Hurricane Sandy Victims?

Businessman: Sure!

Clerk: $1. That's very generous, Sir.

Businessman: Whart? I mean... you suggested it...

Clerk: Okay, your receipt is printing.

Businessman: I don't need a receipt.

Clerk: Nearly printed. [ he glances at the printer as it rattles ] And it's jammed, Sir. I'll print you another.

Businessman: That's okay. Don't worry about it. [ he glances at his watch ] And look at that, I've missed my flight!

Clerk: Will you be needing lodging tonight, Sir?

Businessman: Yes, please.
