A visit to the supermarket next door never fails to bewilder.

Cashier: Would you like a bag?

Me: No.

Cashier: Puts items in bag anyway.

Me: Sigh.

Are you listening to your colleagues, clients, constituents, and members? Or are you just going through the motions?

At least he didn’t charge me for the bag... but don’t tell the county!
