Welcome to the 17th weekly RETAIL WEDNESDAY AWARDS
Aren't you excited?!
But first... you have until TOMORROW NIGHT to enter my SIGNED book giveaway! So why haven't you already? You have nothing to lose and a BOOK to gain. Nuff said.
Say What? Award:
Customer is paying for a book. Shakes all their money out, but comes up 64 cents short. He looks at the cashier and says, "That's okay, right?"
Apparently THIS is what happened...
see more Lolcats and funny pictures
Vaguest Request Award:
A couple of teenagers are looking at the Sony Reader display. I ask if they need help or if they have any questions. The boy looks at me and says, "Is this that E-Reader that I saw on the commercial?"
A customer was looking for the books by Stieg Larsson. The first 2 are in paperback, but the 3rd was just recently released and is only in hardcover. The customer looks at it and then says to my coworker. "The guy's dead. Why don't they just put it out in paperback. It's not like he's gonna get the money."
He's dead, Jim
Book Titles That Make Me Laugh Award:
I was building a "Beer and More" endcap for Father's Day. As I was browsing through the "Wine and Spirits" section I came across the following book, which immediately made me think of Simon. Exquisite Cocktails and Unsound Advice: The Right Drink For Every Occasion HAHA! It includes things like, the proper cocktail to have while stalking your ex, etc.
A (a female coworker) answers the phone.
Man: Yes, I'm looking for condenser microphones.
A: I'm sorry we don't carry any electronics or software.
Man: No, it's not software - a condenser microphone.
A: We don't carry electronics.
Man: You don't know what you're talking about. Can I talk to a guy please?
This is pretty much how she looked...
A: (pause, jaw drop, irritated grinding of teeth) There are no guys here right now. We don't sell any electronics.
Man: Well, where should I get one.
A: Maybe somewhere they sell electronics?
Outright Bizarre Award:
A girl comes into the store and approaches J. She holds out a book and says...
"My boyfriend stole this book. We're no longer in a relationship."
Apparently it wasn't a pleasant parting.
Do you think they broke up over the stealing of the book?
I like to :)
Oh man, it just never ceases to amaze me!
Thanks for stopping by!
Here's a little treat for the road :)
