How I obtained a bag of oranges that I don't want.

At an itty bitty local fruit stand in my itty bitty town:

Him:  Young lady, how can I help you?
Me:  I only have a little bit of change with me, but was wanting to buy one orange if I could.
Him:  An orange?
Me:  Yes sir, just one.
Him:  Okay.

*proceeds to dump a basket of oranges into a bag*

Him:  That'll be $3.00.
Me:  ...I only have a little bit of change. I may not have $3.00 but let me see...

*digs around purse, counts $3.00 out loud, gives it to him*

Him:  I guess that'll be close enough right there.
Me:  Um, it's $3.00 exactly...

And that is how I obtained a bag of oranges that I don't want. The end.
