I went into a local grocery store and went to the deli counter to order a piece of chicken and some "jo-jos" (fried potato slices) for a lunch. After getting the chicken for me the woman behind the counter asked how many jo-jos I wanted. I told her "three".

She put five jo-jos in a bag, held them up and said, "Is that okay?"


A few days later I tried a different grocery store for lunch. I ordered a chicken thigh and, again, three jo-jos to go with it. This deli attendant, however, had her act much more together and acted with confidence and without questions -- and handed me a bag with five jo-jos in it!
