I was waiting in the check-out line today at the market, and overhead this snippet of dialogue from the couple in front of me.
Him: I was looking everywhere for you, I even went to customer service and asked a manager. He suggested that I page you over the intercom, but I said to him, ‘We can’t, she’s practically deaf and not wearing her hearing aids. She won’t hear it!’
Her: (howls with laughter)
Him: I’m glad you find this so funny. I was worried.
Her: Well, if you had turned yours on, you would have heard me say I’ll be by the eggs.
Made my day.
