Title: Re: [Aroid-l] Sheldon and the Flower Lady (?)
Don, Don, Don!

Because if it was a man he would have made up some name so he would sound knowledgeable! (maybe this only works if the Sheldons are female).

 I learned this shopping for saltwater fish.  We did a great deal of research before we went to the store, and found that people would just make up information if they didn't know.  It was very entertaining, we found ourselves going to aquarium and pet shops just to hear clerks go on and on, when they didn't know what they were talking about.

Um, no offense, but why do you assume the clerk in the story was female?  The sex of the clerk wasnʼt mentioned in the original post and if it was revealed in a subsequent post, I must have missed it and do apologize.

Please let the record show that Sheldon's little dialog with the grocery store lady was one of the funniest things I've read in a while. Certainly the funniest plant-related one. The absurdity of the situation and the skillful rendering of the little exchange made my morning.
