A Real Classic

, , , , , | Right | March 30, 2010

(I am a customer talking to a salesperson when I am interrupted by another customer.)

Customer: “Do you have any Beethoven?”

Sales Person: “Certainly, our Classical section has quite a selection of Beethoven.”

Customer: “Well, I couldn’t find any of Beethoven, only various orchestras performing Beethoven’s music. Don’t you have any live Beethoven?”

Sales Person: “Well, no, we don’t, and I don’t think you will manage to find that anywhere.”

Customer: “I bet [Other Store] across the way has it.”

Sales Person: “I would doubt that, but you are welcome to check.”

Customer: “Why don’t you think they will have it?”

(I just have to interrupt.)

Me: “Because everyone knows that all the live copies of Beethoven burned up in his estate fire.”

Customer: “I didn’t know that. So, if there are no live recordings anywhere, how do people know what it sounds like?”

Me: “The sheet music was luckily printed on fireproof paper.”

Customer: “Wow, they had fire-proof paper back then?”
