I was at a pharmacy earlier today looking for something to kill the itch inside the shoes I’ve been wearing for far too long (rough week, don’t ask). In the aisle with me is this really, really old man and his daughter, who looked as if she may have been younger than me (not terribly younger, early to mid twenties I would guess, though considering this happened in KoreaTown, she could have been my elder by a decade). Anyway, they are looking for shampoo together when the old man says “Just grab the Blah Blah Blah that I always use,” to which the daughter replies “No! You can’t use Blah Blah because they test on animals! Start smelling shampoos and pick one!”
I had by that point made the mistake of getting far too close to the both of them, a distance which can only be called “Well, obviously you did overhear us”.

The old man took a hard look at me with that ‘Death can only be a kindness’ look on his face.

I didn’t know what to say.
The daughter repeated her command regarding what products would and would not be purchased a good three times before I cleared out of their.
