Dude, just go somewhere else

I overheard one side of a conversation at the supermarket last night. I couldn't hear what the person behind the bakery counter was saying, but the old man was...well, shall we say, a little upset.

"Do you have any hot cross buns? ... Buns. ... Cross. ... For Easter. Hot cross buns! ... Hot. ... They have an X on the top. ... FOR EASTER. ... Your ad said you had them. ... No, those don't have a CROSS. ... ON THE TOP. ... NO. ... HOT CROSS BUNS. ... ON THE TOP!!!"

He sounded like he was about to have a stroke or something. Seriously, if it's that important, go somewhere else. There are lots of bakeries around; I'm sure something will present itself. I mean, buy some rolls and cut the damn cross into 'em yourself, or get a tube of icing and put your own on. Sheesh.
