    Me: “Hi. Can I help you find something?”

    Patron: “Yeah, my son’s doing some project and he needs some books on some sort of revolution.”

    Me: “Okay, so he can pick any revolution to do the project on?”

    Patron: “No, he’s doing it on The Revolution. Where do I find books on that?”

    Me: “Which revolution? American? French? Haitian? Industrial? There were a lot.”

    Patron: “I think he said it was the one that had a lot of battles.”

    Me: “How can I help you?”

    Customer: “Who’s that chick who wrote Twilight?”

    Me: “That would be Stephanie Meyer.”

    Customer: “And that’s still whoever Meyer?”

    Me: “She wrote the whole series, ma’am.”

    (The customer heads to the DVD rack. I see her looking roughly in the ‘B’ section.)

    Breathless Anticipation

    | Toronto, ON, Canada |

    Customer: “I want to make a complaint about that young man that works here. He didn’t help me at all and I need to find a certain book.”

    Me: “I’m sorry to hear that. Was the book misplaced? Is that why he couldn’t find it?”

    Customer: “Well, no. He didn’t offer to help me at all. I walked by him three times and sighed loudly, and its his job to know that I need help and to help me out.”

    Me: “Are you complaining because he’s supposed to assume that you need help, even when you didn’t ask him for help?”

    Customer: “It’s the polite thing to do! No one here can find books, they’re all shelved funny and its your job to know that we need help finding them. Make him do his job properly!”

    That Request Will Never Fly

    , | USA | Tourists/Travel

    (We hit a bit of turbulence. The ‘Fasten Seatbelt’ light goes on, and the captain comes on the intercom to tell us all to stay seated and buckled in. Shortly after this, a woman hits her call light. I come on over.)

    Me: *bracing myself on the seat across the row* “Yes, ma’am?”

    Passenger: “Could I have a glass of water, please?”

    Me: “Ma’am, the captain has asked us to all stay seated for our safety.”

    Passenger: “But I wouldn’t be getting up!”

    Me: “Ma’am, the captain has asked us ALL to stay seated for our safety.”

    Passenger: “Oh! You too?”

    (As I turn to head back to my seat I overhear her talking to the passenger next to her.)

    Passenger: “But I’ve seen them moving around in all sorts of weather…”
