Bridge Over The River Why?

, , | Right | September 5, 2018

(A woman comes in to the bookstore, I’m at the desk with another customer. She “peeks” into our space and says she just has a “quick question.”)

Customer: “Where is the Bridge book?”

Me: “I don’t know offhand; I will check after I’m finished with this gentleman.”

(She storms away towards our register. A coworker asks:)

Coworker: “Do you think she wanted this? *holding one of the many “summer bridge activities” books we sell*

Me: “No idea.”

(I see the woman storming out of the store (you can tell when they’re storming) and flag her down. She stomps over to us.)

Me: “Is this the [Activity Book] that you wanted?”

Customer: “NO. I want the required summer reading book for Junior High.”

Me: “Oh. A Long Walk to Water?”

Customer: “Yes!” *sneers*

Me: “Hmm, no bridge in the title.”
