She asks him his name to give him a receipt. Man comes into the shop and orders the hardback edition of Machiavelli's The Prince. Child: … A bumblebee. Sure, it's light and a bit of fluff, but it's funny, and true.

You do know it's a fake don't you? Let's face it; anyone who has ever worked retail has a pocket full of similar funny stories to tell. Just like the title, an interesting collection of weird things customers say in bookstores. I explained that upstairs was now a roti palace, not a coffee shop. Actually it didn't quite happen like that.

Lady says that she must do, that she is a regular customer of ours and that's why she bought the book from us, knowing that if the child already had it we would refund her. Child: Sarah. Bookseller: Does your course not request you have a specific edition? Customer: Do you have any medical textbooks?

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores book

Ughhhhhh ew. Bookseller: Nineteen Eighty Six? Though some of the quotes are laugh out loud funny, most are funny-sad; reminders that some readers can finish The Diary of Anne Frank and want to know if she wrote a sequel, that customers think they can return books to one store purchased at another completely unaffiliated store, or that parents searching for books on the Enlightenment for their children think it was about the invention of the light bulb do not particularly restore your faith in the intelligence of the human race.

Customer: Hi, could you recommend a book for me? That should be interesting. Bad bad bad.

I say well you can't eat here, I don't want to attract rats and insects. Like 1 like bookfanatic Jun 25, Good grief, what a riot! She eats a bit and then carefully licks her fingers free of crumbs before starting to flick through some books on the desk. I saw the MIL in the street a couple of days later and as per usual she cut style on me, pretended she hadn't seen me.

I said I don't think you really want this job. I appreciated that the author wasn't meant-spirited, hurtful, or condescending, but kept it in good spirit, which is an accomplishment for this type of book. Perhaps you could bring them for me when you bring the books for the shop. Customer: My mother told me never to trust anyone with brown eyes.

If you are supposed to be doing something else, but want to surreptitiously read a book instead, don't choose this one because you will totally get busted.

This book proved that way of thinking wrong. If you've ever worked in a bookstore, other retail establishment, or any job that deals with the public, you will get a kick out of it.

Two people from the French cruise ship just walked in didn't close door. And possibly to any service kind of job. I am now right at the end of my tether and they sense this and leave dropping crumbs. Happy Reading my Friends!

No honey… just no. Like LaughingOne Oct 23, Laughed my way through this book. She said, "I am a Mambo" a voodoo priestess. I tell her that I know the MIL quite well. I said that they only came in one size. There is an 'interesting' discussion on point 9 on BookLikes.
