Customer: *handing me a book* “Is this the Koran?”

Me: “No, sir, this appears to be a book about Ojibwe singers.”

Customer: “The lady said it would be on aisle 6B.”

Me: “It is, but the Koran’s call number is 297. This book is listed under 264.”

Customer: *blank stare*

Me: “Let me try to help you find it.”

(Walking to aisle 6B, I notice that the book he grabbed is the first book on the aisle, at eye level.)

Me: “Sir, did you just walk to aisle 6B and grab the first book you saw?”

Customer: “I couldn’t find it, so… yes.”

(He then finds another book on the shelf.)

Customer: “Oh, here it is! Would this be the best one?”

(The patron has picked up ‘The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Koran.’)
