Bookstore Blues: Fifty Shades of RAGE

One time a customer came into the store and approached me for help. I could tell right away this wasn’t going to be a pleasant exchange and he was very agitated and short with me from the beginning.

He started out by asking me where the books about Grey’s Anatomy were. I immediately thought of the TV show (because I watch too much TV) and I told him that I didn’t think that there were any books about the show. Then I asked if he meant the actual medical text “Grey’s Anatomy” and he was so mad. So I took him with me to a computer to double check.

He told me he couldn’t believe that I didn’t know what he was talking about and that it was everywhere and everyone knew about the book.  “It’s all over the TV” he said. I again asked him if he meant the show with doctors in it and he said no.

After going round and round like this for awhile he finally said “they just made a movie about it for god’s sake!”.

Then it finally clicked. I asked him if he meant Fifty Shades of Grey. Ladies and gentlemen this is the book that this rude man so desperately wanted and HE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THE NAME AND COULDN’T DESCRIBE IT TO ME!

Anyways I got him the book, wished him a wonderful day and got out of there as soon as humanly possible.

*disclaimer* I have never read Fifty Shades of Grey(and I don’t intend to) so I can’t judge but REALLY DUDE?
