Such a nice man38

I was at a fruit stand on 147th Street, beyond Jamaica Avenue. The Japanese girl there said to me, “Hi! I have not seen you for a long time.”

I said, “I have also not seen you for a long time.”

Then I got seven or eight items. I came to her and she added it up on the cash register. It came to $13. I said, “It is wrong. Are you sure?”

She said, “Do you think I am overcharging you’”

I said, “No, it seems to me that you have not charged me for all the items.”

Then she took the receipt out of the cash register and checked each item to show me that it was all right. I was wrong.

Then she said, “You are such a nice man!”
