him: you know, if you ask a cafe person for a free coffee, they’ll almost always give it to you.
me: nah. nope. no way. don’t believe it. *I* wouldn’t give it to you. (thinking, well I can’t really say that, ’cause most people say “*I* wouldn’t hurt someone just ’cause I was ordered to” BUT 95% WILL)
him: no, really. it’s true.
me: okay. so ask the mcdonald’s girl for a free coffee.
him, to mcdonald’s girl: hey, um. can I get a free coffee?
mcdonald’s girl: uhhh, sure.
after which, of course, I wanted to ask every cafe person in the world for a free coffee to see if they would.
but I won’t ’cause i’m too shy.
