Re: The last time you looked at someone with incredulity

You're in a hurry at Walmart and have one item. The lady at the service counter waves you over to quickly check out. Just as you get close, a guy with a partially-used box of Nicorette wants to try to exchange it for two pairs of socks. So much for getting out of there in a couple of minutes.
