A Brief Conversation with a Shopkeeper in San Francisco

Martin: Hello, how are you?

Shopkeeper: Hi there, I’m good! Tell you what, I’m visiting where you’re from very soon! My daughter’s living there right now.

Martin: …and where’s that?

Shopkeeper: The UK!

Martin: No, Australia…

(Two minutes later, looking at tea towels)

Shopkeeper: Now I know that you’re affiliated with the UK because you know what tea towels are!
