Met this lovely young lady who works at at In-n-Out today. This was our conversation at the cash register.
Me: So how are you? Been a busy day?
Her: Yeah, surprisingly. I don’t know what it is about today.
Me: Probably the weather. (it was gorgeous today, fyi)
Her: And school is out. A lot of schools are out right now and it’s killing me. I graduate in a few weeks.
Me: Oh, congratulations!
Me: You’re lucky. I just started. This is the end of my third week.
Her: Oh really? When do you finish?
Me: Two years.
Her: (pauses, then hands me my change) Here you go. Whoa, that just totally threw me.
