    Customer: “Excuse me, do you have any books on Asia?”

    Me: “Are you looking for history of Asia, or travel?”

    Customer: “Just books on Asia.”

    Me: “Well, we have a few travel books on India, China—”

    Customer: “No, I just want a book about Asia. I’m going to Asia.”

    Me: “I don’t think we have any travel books on the entirety of Asia. Where are you going specifically?”

    Customer: *annoyed* “Asia!”

    Me: “Okay, yes, but where in Asia? Turkey? Pakistan? North? South?”

    Customer: “Oh, is Turkey near Asia?”

    Me: “Um… it’s in Asia. Asia is a continent. It has lots of countries in it. It’s not a country itself.”

    Customer: “Wait, you think Asia’s not a country? Asians have got to come from somewhere!”

    Me: *gives up* “Ah. Well our travel section is just over here. Give me a shout if there’s anything you need…”
