Category: Books & Reading

Caused by stupid customers who know how to read (and often those who don’t!), feel for the poor librarians or book store clerks who are often tasked with finding a book solely by the color of its cover.

Purple Digital Rain

| Cape Town, South Africa | Books & Reading, Uncategorized

Customer: “Hey there, can you help me find a book?”

Me:“Of course, ma’am. Do you know the author or title?”

Customer: “Well you see, I was at the beach and I saw this girl reading a purple book. She looked like she was really enjoying it! I want that book.”

Me: “Ma’am, you’re going to have to be more specific. There are a lot of books with purple covers.”

Customer: “Can’t you search on your computer for purple books?”

Me: “Unfortunately, no.”

Customer: “I’ll go to a bookstore that has better computers.”

How To Address The Proof Of Address

| New Jersey, USA | Books & Reading, Uncategorized, Underaged

Me: “Okay, for a library card I need ID the verifies your address.”

Patron: *recites address*

Me: “I need proof that is your address, like your ID or a bill.”

Patron: *recites address again*

Me: “I’m sorry. I need proof.”

(The patron walks away and comes back with another patron.)

Patron: “Will you please tell this lady where I live to prove it?”
