Hammerhead vs. the cleaning personnel

Hammerhead is having a bowl of spaghetti with extra garlic for breakfast. Enter people to clean the carpets. They are using a really loud vacuum cleaner and seem pretty focused. HH wants to interrupt them anyway.

Hammerhead: Hi! Hi!

Vacuumer guy: [turns off vacuum] Yes?

Hammerhead: You vacuuming?

Guy: Uh, yes I am.

Hammerhead: Well, I was just wanting to show you my new cell phone. It looks gray most of the time, but it glints in the light!

Guy: Uh, that's neat.

Hammerhead: It rings the William Tell Overture! Oh, can you get this piece of spaghetti I dropped on the floor? [As if she can't bend over and pick it up herself.]

Guy: Um, sure.

Hammerhead: Thanks so much. I really appreciate it.
