Phone Freak Award:
I answer the phone.
Guy: Yes, I was wondering if you had a specific computer book.
Me: What book?
Guy: Adobe Premier Pro CS4 Classroom in a Book.
Me: Hold on a second let me check. (look it up, we don't have it) I'm sorry. We don't have that one in stock, but it could be ordered on our website.
Guy: How much does it cost?
Guy: It costs $60 just to order a book!!!!!!!!! (absolute shock and horror in his voice)

A woman approached me at the information desk.
Woman: I'm looking for a book with a lot of pictures of like ancient Greece and Rome. You know, with a lot of pictures like of their clothes and stuff especially.
Me: I'm not sure if we have anything like that, but let's take a look in the ancient history section. (start leading her toward the section)
Woman: I just want something with a lot of pictures of what they wore and like household stuff.
Me: (as we arrive in the section) If we had something it would be here, but I don't remember seeing anything like that in the store. (We both scan the shelves, checking a couple of books, but mostly they are just text)
Woman: (holding up a book) Something like this would be good, but with pictures of their clothes and stuff.
Me: It doesn't look like we have anything that specific.
Woman: How about in the kid's section? Would there be something in there?
Me: I haven't seen anything--
Woman: (cuts me off) well, we could look, right?
Me: Yes. (I start leading the way across the store to the kid's section)
Woman: You know, something with a lot of pictures.
Me: (oh, wait! You want something with PICTURES?! <---sarcastafont engage) We'll take a look at the section. (we get to the kid's history section. There is one book about Ancient Greece, but it only has a very small amount about clothes)
Woman: Yeah, I just need something that has a lot of pictures. Like of their clothes and things.
Me: We could check and see if anything comes up on our website.
Woman: No, I'll just go look back at that other section and try to find something. It just needs to have a lot of pictures.
