Asking questions in a grocery store
(A shopper asks a grocery store worker some questions.)
Shopper: Excuse me.
This is a shopper.
|Worker: Yes, can I help you?|
This is a worker.
Shopper: Can you tell me how much these melons are? I don’t see a price.
|Worker: They’re three dollars each.|
|Shopper: Oh, okay. Do you know if they’re any good?|
|Worker: We just got them in yesterday, but I haven’t tasted them.|
Shopper: Okay, I’ll buy one and see how it is.
|Worker: Let me know if they’re any good. I like melons, too.|
|Shopper: I will. One more question — I’m looking for Thai basil. Do you sell that here?|
|Worker: I’m sorry, we don’t, but you can probably find it at the farmer’s market that comes here on Thursday.|
Shopper: That’s a good idea. Thanks for your help.
|Worker: You’re welcome.|
