Could Get Booked For That

| Working | February 3, 2015

(We have just got in a box of used books that we are cleaning and putting ‘used’ price tags on. I notice one book is set aside with no tag on it.)

Me: “[Boss], did you still need to tag this one as used?”

Boss: “No, it’s in good shape so I’m going to sell it as new. But hand it here; I do need to tag it as a signed copy.”

(I look at the title page.)

Me: “It’s not just signed; it’s inscribed to the previous owner. Do you really want to sell that as new?”

Boss: “Sure, someone will be dumb enough to buy it at full price.”
