! ! ! this just in ! ! !

PATRON: excuse me, is your fiction sorted alphabetically?

ME (in my head): no sir, they're sorted by the number of chapters...good luck!
ME (in real life): yes sir.

PATRON: the "w"'s?
ME (in my head): they're were they've been for hundreds of years. If you don't know the alphabet, why'd you ask?

ME: the shelves are labeled sir, but the W's are right there after the V's.

-----------------------------------

I mean, REALLY! I did not attend the best schools in all the land, but they did manage to teach me the alphabet on the way through. What is the problem?

Yes, I've been simmering about that ALL day!
"Where are the W's" INDEED!

I would not have been surprised if he'd asked me the number for 9-1-1.

sheesh!

Maybe he was schooled in a poverty stricken area that couldn't afford to include the entire alphabet. You should have quizzed him a little more. Perhaps he doesn't know how numbers work either...

bskove-he would have disappointed me there too and I would have been even more pissed off. I decided to cut my losses :)
