The scene: Yesterday afternoon, Ace Hardware. I decided to pick up some potting soil because I was running low and I was in the area waiting for my car to get fixed.
Teen Clerk: (looking at the bag of Happy Frog potting soil) How is this stuff, is it pretty good? I wanted to know what soil is good.
Me: It's alright, I've been using the ocean stuff from the same brand for a while and I liked it. But I need variety because I have, like, 60 plants.
TC: What do you grow?
M:Oh, all kinds of stuff.
TC: ... Like herbs?
M: (suspiciously squinting at this kid) ....yeah, something like that.
Another long pause.
Tell me about your awkward clerk interactions.
