That awkward moment when you’re in public and you forget that people don’t realize how freaking hilarious you are.
So when the cashier asks you if a plastic bag is ok, you lower your voice and say:
“NooooOOOOooooooOOOOooooo.” (because you don’t need a bag at all — but she doesn’t know that yet)
And then you realize there’s nowhere else to go with your weird sing-songy “No” joke, and it doesn’t really sound funny without a punchline…
So then you snap back to being normal, apologize, and explain what you meant.
And she goes:
“Oh, no worries! I hear worse all the time!”
And then because no one is in line behind you, you end up having a delightful conversation about how you were a bag boy when you were 16 and that time when you bagged someone’s groceries wrong and they shouted, “You really ARE a zero!”
So I don’t tend to take the whole bagging groceries thing too seriously.
And she’s like, “I would’ve cried. You probably couldn’t cry. But I would’ve cried!”
And that’s how you make friends by being stupid at the grocery store.
