    A Major Problem With A Minor Request

    | Brooklyn, NY, USA |

    Me: “Good afternoon, [bookstore]!”

    Caller: “Hi, I have to do a project where I read to kids and they respond. Do you have that?”

    Me: “You need a book to read to them? Sure! We have plenty of children’s books.”

    Caller: “No, I need to read to kids and have them respond.”

    Me: “Right, we have plenty of books you could chose from to read to them.”

    Caller: “No, I need to read to kids and have them respond.”

    Me: “So what exactly is it that you need from us?”

    Caller: “Can I do that there?”

    Me: “Well, we don’t provide the children.”

    Caller: *disappointed* “Oh, okay. Bye.”
