    | Medford, MA, USA | Musical Mayhem

    Customer: “Do you have anything from Nirvana?”

    Me: “Sure, right this way. Here is a book about Kurt Kobain, and over here is a copy of his diary.”

    Customer: “No, the music.”

    Me: “Oh, did you want the book about the band and the grunge scene?”

    Customer: “No, the music.”

    (The customer holds up his hands to his ears, miming headphones.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, are you looking for the music on CD?”

    Customer: “Yeah, a CD.”

    Me: “Oh, sorry. We don’t sell that here. Maybe you could try the music store on the other side of the mall?”

    Customer: “What? You’re out of the CD?”

    Me: “No, we don’t sell CDs at all. Just the—”

    Me: “Ah, because this is a bookstore?”
