Little Women Beat A Little Man

, , , , , | Right | February 11, 2020

(The movie “Little Women” has just been released into theaters and, as such, we have had a run on the book. We finally have gotten it back in stock and have had numerous people asking for it. Whenever someone asks for a book, we are supposed to take them to that spot so that we can place it in their hands. Some people know who it’s by and just go straight to the section and some don’t, but this customer takes the cake.)

Customer: “I need Little Women by Jane Austen.”

Me:Little Women is by Louisa May Alcott, unless you’re wanting something from Jane Austen?”

Customer:Little Women is by Jane Austen! I am the customer and I am right!”

Me: “Sir, Jane Austen was born in the 1700s; Louisa May Alcott was born in the 1800s. One was British and the other American. They are two separate authors.”

Customer:Little Women was written by Jane Austen! I’ll prove it to you!”

Me: “Okay, I’ll wait.”

(The customer begins Googling on his phone and stops, turns pale, and looks up at me.)

Customer: “I guess I was thinking about a different book. I need Little Women.”

Me: *sugary sweet customer service voice* “Of course, sir! Here it is. Is there anything else I can help you with? If not, have a great day!”
