You can't make up dialog like this

Overheard at the school uniform store:

50sish woman: I'm looking for khaki pants in size 48.

Clerk (bending down to the lowest shelf): only one pair?

Woman: Yes, and I'll need two polo shirts, size 4X.

Clerk: We only have size 3X, will that do?

Woman: No, we got 4X last year. Could you put two on order?

Clerk: What's the name?

Woman: Herman Finster [name hopefully changed to protect the innocent]

Clerk (looking up something): You bought size 3X last year, will that do?
