Coffee Shop: Hello, _________ Coffee.
Me: Hi, I was just there a while ago. Did I leave my knitting needle there?
CS: I'm sorry, you're what?
Me: Knitting needle.
CS: Let me check...
Me: Thank you. (I hum while I'm on hold).
CS: I found a stick. Could that be it?
Me: Is it a pointy bamboo stick?
CS: I don't think so, but it has a patina...
Me: That's probably it, I'll be down to pick it up in a few minutes. Thank you!
