Journalists need money too!

Lady brings the paper up to the counter. Reads it while I make her coffee. I’m ringing her up.

Me: So that’ll be a coffee and the paper?

Lady: Oh no, I’m not buying the paper.

Me: O…k.

Lady: I just want to read it.

Isn’t that a little like saying, “I don’t want to buy the coffee, I just want to drink it?”
