Rope purchase – Go to the hardware store. Wear high heels, makeup and something sexy. Buy a six foot length of rope. Nothing else. You may need assistance to find and cut it.

A story in pictures.
“How much?” he asked. “Exactly six feet,” I said. He glanced over at me with raised eyebrows, then turned to his task. Before he cut the rope he showed me the length. “Is this okay?” “Hmm…” I said. “It’s an inch over. Can you cut that inch off?”
At the check out counter I almost blow it (or perhaps I did? A penalty?) I realized I was going to have to use my debit card for less than a dollar purchase. So I grabbed a green tea. Then realized that my instructions were to buy “exactly six feet of rope” and nothing else. What to do, what to do?? I dig thru my purse and find a couple dollar bills and some change. But I so don’t want to put the ice tea away after I have stood there for five minutes dithering. I hit on a possible solution. I mean, it fulfills the letter of the task, if not the intent…
“Can you ring these separately?”
