Bananas and bottled water and bank-breaking marshmallows, oh my! Keep ’em coming to eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com.
Manager: "We need Splenda and bottled water as soon as possible. Tell Jose to send some over … Splenda and bottled water. It’s an emergency!!"
Dolores: "Pardon me, but I’d like the banana too."
Cashier: "Those are for meal deals only."
Dolores (holding two sandwiches, two large bottles of water and a large
bag of kettle chips): "I’m spending MORE than a meal deal would cost…"
Cashier: "Meal deal only."
Dolores: "So Safeway won’t sell me a banana?"
Cashier: "Not these."
(Dolores’s husband then went to the produce aisle, returned with two bananas, with the same product code, which were weighed and added to the bill.)
Blonde woman, with lots of bling, speaking to Hampton-snobbery friends:
""I was so surprised to see people actually take the bus. I mean, some people, like, actually take the bus for a living."
Mother, to kids: "I am not buying you a marshmallow for six dollars."
