Me: “Hi. How can I help you?”

Customer: “The non-fiction section.”

Me: “Well, the non-fiction section includes computers, travel, art, poetry, religion, health, biographies, beauty, and many other topics. It’s 60% of the store. Is there one area of non-fiction you are looking for?”

Customer: “I think I will just look around.”
