Vonnegut

Oh, the customers I get to deal with every day!

This morning a man comes into the library.

He is looking for a Man Without a Country by Don Imus.  You know. That radio guy.

I tell him that we have a book called a Man Without a Country by Kurt Vonnegut.

He tells me that I am wrong. It is by Don Imus. That radio guy. He wrote four books!

I do an author search.  I find nothing by Don Imus.  I tell him so.

I tell him again that we DO have a Man Without a Country by Kurt Vonnegut.  Perhaps he was reading an article about Vonnegut as they were both in the news lately.

He says:  “I’ll take that one. Maybe it’s his pen name.”

How could I argue with that?

    OMG! LOL!

    Some people take “the customer is always right” a little too far. They have no one else to boss around so they come into your workplace and try to tell you your business.
