Hopefully She Won’t Be Picking It Up From The Floor

, , , | Right | November 22, 2020

I’m currently switching out the displayed books on a shelf when I hear the telltale grating of one of the support boards give in. I scramble to grab the board but the books start falling, crashing into the books on the board below, and those books start falling as well. I try to catch at least some but most tumble to the floor around me.

A woman walks up to me as I’m still clinging to the board in the hope of saving at least some books.

Customer: “Please order [Book] for me. I’ll be picking it up next week.”

She then gave me her name as I was staring at her in disbelief, and then she left without saying goodbye.
