Not Exactly What It Says On The Tin

, , , , , , | Working | October 13, 2020

I am looking for a specific comic book that recently came out, so I’m going to various comic book stores in the area. I see one I’ve never been to before, “[Name] Comics & Games.” I pull into the parking lot, open the door, and freeze when there are clearly no comics in sight. The place is pretty bare, mostly empty folding tables and chairs. Three people are sitting at one of the tables staring at me.

Employee: “Uh, can we help you?”

Me: “Um, I’m looking for a comic by [Comic Book Artist]–”

Employee: “Yeah, well, we don’t carry comics.”

The employee stares like I walked into a hardware store and asked where they keep the milk.

Me: “Uh… Okay. Thanks.”

I walked outside and double-checked the sign, and yep, it said, “[Name] Comics & Games.”

Apparently, it’s a trading card game shop that also carries some collectibles, but surely they realize that having “COMICS” in their NAME is going to lead to a lot of people coming in looking for comics, right?
