Curran: I like these tennis shoes. I need a new pair.

Beth: We’re here to buy you some dress shoes for attending Chelsey’s wedding. You can’t go wearing those worn out loafers, and you need time to break them in.

Curran: All right. Just pick whatever you think is suitable and let’s go.

Beth: Don’t you want to have a say in what you wear? I think these oxfords are nice. What do you think?

Curran: Great. I’m a size 10 and a half. I’ll try them on and we’ll go.

Beth: You can’t just buy the first pair of shoes you see. How about these?

Curran: Those patent leather shoes? They have purple laces. Well, if you think they’re okay...

Beth: No, they’re not. These shoes are totally wrong for the occasion, not to mention hideous. I was just trying to get a rise out of you so you’ll pick the shoes you like.

Curran: But I don’t care what I wear. Just pick a pair.

Beth: No, you pick.

Curran: Fine. How about these?

Beth: No, they’re not dressy enough. They look more like sandals than dress shoes.

Curran: Then how about these?

Beth: Those boots? Definitely not.

Curran: Okay, these then.

Beth: Those shoes fasten with Velcro. Are you kidding me?

Curran: Okay, why don’t you just tell me what my taste should be and I’ll buy what you want me to buy?

Beth: And leave you with no say in your own purchase? What kind of cousin would I be if I did that?
