Can you hold this bag while I get the cart?
We need to get some milk, some butter…
No, we still have some.
Yes, we could get some.
Don’t bump into anyone.
I hate doing that!
Because we already have some at home.
Look! We are not going to argue about this!
No, we don’t want this brand.
That’s what we want. Thank you, Jamie.
Let’s see if you can find the sugar, now!
Never mind. We’ll get it later.
It’s in the next aisle.
There are the same bags on the bottom shelf.
Let me get six cartons of fruit juice and some beer.
We have to get everything out of the cart now.
Your cart’s in the way!
How stupid of me!
