- Excuse me, miss. Do you work here?
- Yes, I do! How can I assist you?
- Can you help me find the eggs?
- Eggs? Yes, of course. Follow me, please.
- Thank you so much. I have looked down every aisle and can’t seem to locate them.
- No worries! We just rearranged a few things, so I apologize for that. We
have eggs of different colors, sizes, and types. What are you looking for exactly?
- Um, let me double-check my shopping list. Usually, my wife does the shopping. I feel
like a deer in headlights in these big supermarkets. I think large white free-ranged eggs
should be ok.
- (laughs) I understand. I work here and sometimes get confused! Anyway,
are you looking for a full dozen or just half a dozen eggs?
- Two dozen actually! My wife and I plan to make some omelets, pancakes, and sausage
for our kids on Sunday.
- Wow, sounds delicious! Can I come? (laughs) Here we are!
- Well, if you come, we might need three dozen eggs! (laughs)
