Hardware Store Clerk: Okay, just this, today?
Me: Oh, you’re right, I forgot something.
HSC: What do you need?
Me: I need an eyelet. Where would I find that?
HSC: A what?
Me: An eyelet screw.
HSC: I don’t know what that is. Can you describe it?
Me: well, it’s like a wood screw, but instead of a head on the end it has a little circle.
HSC: *Blank stare*
Me: You use it for hanging pictures.
HSC: I don’t know what you’re talking about, but picture hardware is on aisle 7.
*2 Minutes later*
HSC: Did you find it?
Me: Yes. Right here.
HSC: *ROLLING EYES* That’s an eye screw! Not eyelet!
Ermmmm… My mistake…
