A Witty Reply

I just returned from the supermarket. While waiting in line to pay for my groceries, I overheard this exchange between a customer and the checker.

Customer: How was your Thanksgiving?

Checker: We had to work.

Customer: That's too bad. But at least I guess you got paid well.

Checker: We got paid closer to what we're worth.

I thought this was a good, witty answer. This is one reason why I don't use the checkout machines to pay for my groceries even if I could do it faster that way. I like the human touch, and I like to hear conversations like the one above.
