Look at this guy, does he work in a zoo? Why is he on the counter instead of taking my order!
I'm sorry Mam, but I overheard what you said. Is there something wrong with me standing up here?
Yes. I am a paying customer and you should be doing your job and helping me.
Ok. Since I just actively listened to you I want you to return the favor. I have an insecurity about my shortness so I need to stand on elevated platforms at all times. I don't even work here this register is closed.
It's ok. I'm sorry about the confusion. I think register 12 is available.
