Yelling across the parking lot


I like when a vacationing American couple park at the store or attraction and the husband goes in so he can ask questions and yell the information back to his wife.

“Pardon me, Sir,” he asks, “but do you have unleaded gasoline?”

“Yes we do, Sir,” the attendant replies.

“Honey!”, he yells back to his wife in the car, “he says they have it!”

“Do they have super unleaded?” she yells back.

“Excuse me, Sir,” he asks, “but do you have super unleaded?”

“No,” the attendant replies, “only regular unleaded.”

“Honey!”, he yells, “he says they only have regular unleaded!”

“Why does not your wife come into the store?” the attendant asks.

“We don’t do it like that.”
