weird things customers say in bookshops
Male customer *shouting from the doorway*: Hey, love - you read books, that means you’re intelligent, yeah? So, that must mean you’ll go out with me. Because that would be a very intelligent decision for you to make.
Me: So, you’re saying that if I say no, I must be stupid?
Male customer: Yeah. Really stupid.
Me: Does this chat up line work for you very often?
Male customer: Er…
Me: I’m guessing probably not.
Male customer: ….
Me: It’s not my job to educate you on how to speak to people respectfully. But there are lots of books in here that could probably assist you. Maybe you should read them. Or get out of my shop.
(Good grief. Is it wine o’clock yet?)
