Overheard in the Bookstore

Bookseller (looking up $150 chemistry textbook for customer): I'm sorry. We don't carry this book in any of our stores. It's only available online, from Borders.com. Would you like me to order it for you?

Customer: Can you check and see if they have it at the store in Rolling Hills?

I always loved that response! Silly people.

Hello, new follower here. :)

I just read this post and laughed, because this happens all the time at the library. It seems that people neither listen to you or read any signs. :)

Ah, the general public. Speak slowly and use small words. :-)

Hi, new follower here, and also a fellow bookseller, albeit an indie one. Lordy, those customer encounters can just be priceless, can't they?
