I am a normally calm person. Hard to get me upset or mad. But it makes me want to create a few new obscenities and scream then as I stab the author, co-author, contributors, and readers of these bloody fucking articles. Preferably in the eyes, with toothpicks, soaked in the venom of the deadly box jellyfish.
This has got to be the most obnoxious thing any person is capable of. It's annoying, it's rude, it's stupid, and it makes you look like a cheap idiot.
This is not an open air flea market, it is a retail store. If you are too cheap to spend that extra $2 on that hardcover, then wait for the paperback or shut the fuck up and go somewhere else.
Oh B&N has it for less? Ok so why the fuck did you come here? Staring at me indignantly will not make me give it to you half price.
I don't care if its a present; you cant care too much about the recipient if you aren't even willing to pay a respectable price for the item, but instead want to heckle me into a price that is a third of what its worth.
Very classy. I even had a guy ask me if he could "rent" a book from the store because it was "too expensive and he only needed it for a bit."
That's what a library is for, pal. Unbelievable.....
