At the supermarket today...  
At the Market Basket in Nashua today I had two funny interactions:

1) I'm wandering around stopping at the head of each isle, studying the "what's in this isle" boards and looking at the stuff on the shelves, trying to figure out (remember) if I needed anything from that one. A guy in a blue uniform of some sort (what do they wear? Aprons? Shirts? How funny is it that I can't remember!) says, "Can I help you find something?" I respond, "Um.. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for, I left my list at home." Without skipping a beat he says, "OK! I guess I'll see you tomorrow!"

2) At the checkout when I hand my green Citizens bank reusable shopping bag to the woman filling such things up with groceries I say, "it should all fit in there, I managed to get everything here with it, and I suspect you're better at this than I am."

After I'd paid and everything was packed, I saw that she did, in fact, do a spectacular job filling the bag with ruthless efficiency. "Wow! That's way better than I did!" I told her. "That's what working here for five years does to you." she responded, "I'm also really good at Tetris."

I gotta say, stuff like that makes me like Market Basket.
