Everyone knows the Mission Street Mobil only hires geniuses, but the new dude is something else. He blew my mind so wide open, I had to take this picture of myself taking a picture to remember who I was.
“How much for a Lemonhead?”
“That’s what I thought. Those are great.”
Twenty-five cents, ten cents, eight cents. No doubt.
Context is the most important word in the English language.
That’s a $30,000/year-grad-school lesson I learned from the world-famous English teacher teacher Scott Thornbury, and it’s about to save me 72 cents.
Because if I gladly hand him $0.80, the proper thing for him to do would be charge me 80 cents with a smile and say thank you, so as not to cause me to lose face over $0.72 USD. All these guys are foreigners.
Eight-cent $0.80 Lemonheads is a win-win, but it’s nothing compared to dollar limes (not pictured).
“You’re selling limes for a dollar each?”
“That’s insane. Was that your idea?"
“Yeah! For Coronas!!!”
“That’s genius, bro. Seriously, congratulations. Keep at it. They should give you a raise.”
“Thank you! Have a good night!!!”
“I intend to.”
