Jack:Hey. I wanted to buy oats. Can you help me out?
Bill: Sure Sir. Which brand are you looking for?
Jack: I’m looking for Kelloggs. On which counter will I find it?
Bill: It’s counter three. It’s at the back, near the dairy section.
Jack: Thanks. Will I find the other brands on the same counter?
Bill: Yes! We have all the major brands displayed there.
Jack: Okay! Thanks for your help.
Bill: You’re welcome.
Jack: Hi. I got some stuff and now I’m wondering. Do you take credit cards?
Mary: Yes Sir. We do.
Jack: Do you accept cards from all banks?
Mary: Yes Sir. Any American Bank would do.
Jack: I have a Citibank credit card.
Mary: That would be fine Sir. Can I have your card to swipe?
Jack: Sure. Here it is.
Jack: I have a loyalty card from here. Will that grant me any discount?
Bill: Yes Sir. It will get you 5% off on the total purchase.
Jack: Can I club it with another discount card?
Bill: No Sir. I’m sorry. That’s not allowed.
Jack: Ok. That’s not a problem. Is it going to get me loyalty points too?
Bill: Yes Sir. Every time you pay with it, you get some points which you can redeem later on.
Jack: That’s great. Thanks for the information. I didn’t know that.
Jack: Hi. I want to buy some canned tomatoes. But I see none displayed. Do you have more in stock?
Mary: I’m not sure Sir. Which brand do you prefer?
Jack: I don’t have a favorite one. Any of them will do as long as it’s not too expensive.
Mary: Actually all the brands are almost in the same price range. I am sure we have some brands in stock. Let me check.
Jack: Will it take long?
Mary: Not at all Sir. Yes we have some. In aisle 3. Look at the third row from left.
Jack: Okay. Thanks!
