Actual conversation I had at Walgreen's while looking for sterile Q-tips:
I look over and see a man mumbling to himself while scooping through a bin of white tube socks.
Man: Are these all the socks they have?
He sees that I look over, and I quickly turn back to the Q-tip selection.
Man: These don't seem like very good quality.
Man: They're pretty cheap though. Must not be very good.
Man: You know which socks are good? Adidas. I bought a pair of those, lasted me four months.
LLMB: Wow. (Only four months?)
Man: Those socks were expensive though. I bet these don't last too long.
Man: Maybe there's some different socks at the bottom of this pile.
I left and went to Safeway where I saw a man standing in the entrance area who had a white surgical face mask pulled down from his mouth. He was coughing incessantly without covering his mouth. I had to take a serious detour to get around his coughing.
