    It’s Best To Book It

    | San Francisco, CA, USA | Liars & Scammers, Top

    (I’m the merchandising manager of a large bookstore. I see a man looking around for books. He seems quite perplexed, so I try to help him.)

    Me: “May I help you, sir?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I’m having a h*** of a time finding these books on my list.”

    Me: “What’s the first book?”

    (I help him find half the books on the list, but he seems to be having a hard time reading the list. )

    Me: “Maybe you could just give me the list, and I’ll find them for you?”

    Customer: “Oh, yes!”

    (He hands me a crumpled receipt from my store.)

    Me: “So, you want to replace these books you purchased before?”

    Customer: “Well, no… I was thinking I could get these books, take them to the front counter with the receipt and get money baaaaaa—” *trails off*

    (There’s a bit of deadly silence as the customer realizes that he’s been caught.)

    Customer: “I guess that won’t work now, huh?”

    Me: “I think you should leave the store, sir. Have a nice day.”
