One Size Wraps All

| Houston, TX, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Is this unisex?”

Me: “It’s a towel, I don’t–”

Customer: “But is it unisex?”

Me: “It’s a towel set.”

Customer: “I know, but is it unisex?”

Me: “It’s a towel. I’m pretty sure towels are unisex worldwide.”

Customer: “You better be right!”

OCD Is Under-appreciated

| Cambridge, MA, USA | Books & Reading

Customer: “Your books are out of order.”

Me: “Yeah, sorry about that. Sometimes people take books off the shelf then don’t put them back exactly where they were. Did you need help finding something?”

Customer: “No, the order’s just wrong.”

Me: “Okay, thanks for letting us know.”

Customer: “Would you like me to fix them for you?”

Me: “That’s really not necessary. Thank you, though.”

Customer: *pause* “Can I sort them for you?”

Me: “Um, if you really want to, I suppose.”

(To my surprise, the customer actually sorted everything!)

And The Egg Laid The Chicken

| Cleveland, MS, USA | Books & Reading

(A customer approaches me waving a copy of “The Help” in my face.)

Customer: “Is this book based off that movie that just came out?”

Me: “I think the book came out first, but–”

Customer: “Yeah, I just saw the movie! I didn’t think the book would come out so fast!”

Me: “But–”

Customer: “I don’t know if I should even bother. The book is never quite as good, anyway!”

From Facebook To Selling Books

| London, UK | Books & Reading

(I have been working at this bookstore for nearly 2 years.)

Customer: “You work here now.”

Me: *puzzled* “Yes.”

Customer: “So, you no longer work on the Facebook?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “You’re Mark Zuckwhatever, right?”

Me: “Mark Zuckerberg? No, that’s not me.”

Customer: “It’s okay, your identity is safe with me!” *walks
alway*

The Only Reason To Read Anyway

| England, UK | Books & Reading, Rude & Risque

(A young teenage girl has been standing perplexed looking at the front covers of two books, “Twilight” and “Vampire Diaries”.)

Me: “Having trouble finding a book?”

Customer: “No, I’m just trying to work out which of these has the best sex scenes in them.”
