Overheard in Dorchester

So I’m waiting in line at the deli section of the Stop & Shop at 545 Freeport St. in Dorchester, and the customer in front of me asks the clerk a question:

Customer: Where are we?

Clerk [in a surprised tone]: This is Stop & Shop!

Customer: I know that. But where are we? Stop & Shop where?

Clerk: Oh, well, this is the Neponset section of Dorchester.

Customer: And is that meat really $7.99 a pound?

Clerk: Well…yes, that’s what it says.

Customer: Then why aren’t we in Milton? How can you charge so much in Dorchester?
