, , , | Right | December 5, 2021

An elderly man comes into the bookstore.

Customer: “I’m looking for a book for my grandson.”

Me: “What kind of books does he like?”

Customer: “Well his mother gave me a list of rules. The books can’t have princes or princesses. No knights. No dragons or other fantasy animals, and certainly no talking animals! No men that have to save women. No…”

In the end, he can’t buy a book for none of them get past the rules; it’s the saddest thing.

Me: “May I suggest a toy? We have a selection here.”

Customer: “Ah, yes. The rules for those are: no plastic, nothing that has to be built or put together, nothing that might have a sharp edge, nothing battery powered…”

In the end, he couldn’t get the poor boy anything.
