Salesperson: Can I help you?
Customer: Yes, I’m looking for something to wear to a formal party.
Salesperson: What size do you wear, ma’am?
Customer: Medium, an eight or a ten.
Salesperson: Let me show you what we have. This dress is very beautiful. It’s the latest fashion from Paris. And here’s a plaid jacket that matches.
Customer: Plaid? No way! What about this skirt here?
Salesperson: Good choice. It’s made of pure silk. This silk blouse would go with it very well.
Customer: Let me try it on. Where’s the dressing room?
Salesperson: Right over here.
Customer: Thanks.

(A LITTLE LATER)

Salesperson: Ah, you look wonderful.
Customer: Really? Isn’t the skirt a bit too long?
Salesperson: We can always make it shorter.
Customer: That’s true. How much is it?
Salesperson: The skirt is $125. And the blouse is on sale, for only $69.
Customer: OK, I’ll take it
