    Eavesdroppers’ Remorse

    | Pleasant Hill, USA |

    (A young woman and her boyfriend are in the adult section talking in whispers so as not to disturb other customers. Another woman storms up to the information desk.)

    Customer #1: “Excuse me! I want you to throw those two out right now!”

    Me: “May I ask why?”

    Customer #1: “They’re talking about a very inappropriate subject.”

    Me: “We’ll, ma’am, they are in the adult section.”

    Customer #1: “I heard them talking about… ugh. How can you let them say those things?”

    Customer #2: “Pardon me, I would like to complain about this woman. She’s been looming over our shoulders for fifteen minutes.”

    Me, to customer #1: “Let me get this straight. You walked into the adult section, got real close to a whispered conversation, listened for fifteen minutes, and want to complain because you don’t like the subject? Why would you listen for that long if you didn’t like what you heard?”

    Customer #1: “Um, er, uh…” *leaves in a hurry*
