Actual Conversation at a Cafe in Seattle

BARISTA
What can I get you?

ME
I’ll have a short iced americano, please.  Also some whole beans.  (turning over several bags of whole beans to check roast dates…)  Whoa!  July 3rd?!

BARISTA
Whoa!  That can’t be right…

ME
(handing the bag to the BARISTA) Maybe the sticker’s wrong?

BARISTA
Maybe.  Do you want to just take it?  You can have it for free (holds out bag to offer it to ME).

ME
(looking at BARISTA) …

BARISTA
(looking at ME) 

ME
(looking at BARISTA) …  No thank you.

End scene.
