Shopping online or at local department stores is an activity many people enjoy.
How often do you go shopping for the following items and where do you buy them: clothing, gifts for friends and family, music, DVD movies, electronics?
Man: Hi young lady. How may I help you?
Girl: Well, . . . yeah. I'm looking for a Father's Day gift.
Man: Okay. How about getting your father a new wallet?
Girl: Hmm. How much is that wallet?
Man: Huh . . . which one?
Girl: The black one.
Man: Oh. It's only $40.95.
Girl: Huh? That's too expensive for me. Do you have a cheaper one?
Man: Hmm. How about this brown leather one?
Girl: Umm. . . I don't think my father will like the design on the outside, and it doesn't have a place to put pictures. How much is it anyway?
Man: It's $25.99.
Girl: Humm. I don't have that much money.
Man: Okay. How much money do you have to spend?
Girl: I'm not sure [money falling on the table]. Probably about ten dollars or so. I've been helping my mom around the house for the past week to earn some money. This is all I have.
Man: Hmm. How about this tie?
Girl: That's real pretty, but the price tag says $13.99, and I know I don't have that much money.
Man: Well, let's just say the tie went on sale. How about $5.00. What do you say?
Girl: Oh, thanks. I'll take it.
Store Clerk: Hi. Welcome to Angie's. Can I help you find something or are you just looking?
Marianne: I'm not sure. Aren't you having a sale right now?
Store Clerk: Everything on these two racks over here is on sale.
Marianne: Thanks. Oooo. This sweater is nice. But it looks a little big. Do you have this in a smaller size?
Store Clerk: I think so. Let me look. Oh, here's one. Would you like to use the fitting room to try it on?
Marianne: Sure. Thanks.
...a little later...
Store Clerk: How did it fit?
Marianne: Not too bad. I think I'll take it.
Store Clerk: Great. (She takes it off the hanger) How would you like to pay?
Marianne: Well, I'm almost maxed out on my credit card, so I think I'll pay with a check.
Store Clerk: Okay, with tax it comes to $24.93.*
Marianne: Who should I make the check out to?
Store Clerk: Angie's.
Marianne: Here you are.
Store Clerk: Can I see some I.D. too, please?
Marianne: Sure, here is my driver's license.
Store Clerk: Thanks. Here you go. Enjoy your sweater. And have a nice day.
Marianne: Thanks. You too.
