Trying Not To Read Ahead

(I’m working the checkout counter when a cheerful old man, one of our regulars, comes to check out a book.)

Customer: “Do you also have that autobiography by [Author]?”

Me: “Let me check… Yes, we do have it. Would you like me to get it for you?”

Customer: “Oh, no. I’ll borrow it at a later date. I only ever borrow one book at a time, you know. After all, I’m in my 90s now. I might not live to return it!”
