Dumbass Custys: "But She Said I Didn't Have To Wait!"
Awkwardly Placed Sticker From Best Buy Changes Up Double Feature

Retail Robin: *Eyetwitch*



Customer: “I’m looking for a book.”

Employee: “What’s it called?”

Customer: “I don’t know.”

Employee: “Who is it by?”

Customer: “I don’t know.”

Employee: “What is it about?”

Customer: “Shouldn’t you know that?”


This is an homage to all of the customers who seem to literally think I have psychic powers.

You forgot classics like "The cover is red." And one that I got THREE (!!!) times, "There was a girl on the beach (train, park bench) reading this book and she looked like she was enjoying it so I want that one." "Okay, which book?" "I don't know, the cover had a woman on it."

And seemingly endless other idiotic variations. :-P


"Guy, the sign over the door says 'Bookstore', not 'Psychic'. And my name ain't Miss Cleo."

THIS is why I'm glad I don't work in a book store!

"Well we have thousands of books here. Take a look around to see if you find anything that fits what you are thinking about"


"I don't know the title or author, but the cover was blue and there's a girl in it."


"Guy, the sign over the door says 'Bookstore', not 'Psychic'. And my name ain't Miss Cleo."

If it were, you could recommend your own book.


"You know the one I mean! It's the one with the... you know, the... that thing, you know! That one. What do you mean, you don't know what I mean? I'm talking about that thing."


The one Oprah talked about a few months ago, that one.


Lightninga: "Oh yeah, that one! That's this one (grabs nearest book at random) right here!"

Bored at the Bookstore

"It was on the Today show two weeks ago... I think."


I and my mom made a joke of this today. Looking for a new bag, she recalled seeing one among the many offers that was 40€. Couldn't remember where she had seen it.
"Mom, no details. What color was it?"
"It was black."
"Black? Majority of bags here are black. 'I need the book, with the red cover'."
"No, no, the cover is 'blue'."
Yeah, we make dumb jokes while shopping.
