The Holidays, or, When People Are Stupid

Please don't ask me why we don't carry something when I've just told you we are happy to order it, but it isn't in our inventory. I know you don't understand why everyone doesn't want to read Animals and the Afterlife (the actual title I discussed with this person), but everyone really doesn't. If I say it's not there, it's not that I, personally, made the decision to kick it from our shelves (or in this case, never carry it at all), it's that some buyer somewhere who gets paid more than me didn't want it. I don't know his or her logic. And I told you, I can order it especially for you if you really need it. Leave me alone.

It's not my fault if you don't know the freeways in San Diego. I've given the directions, it's up to you to Mapquest it or whatever.

Don't return your 1973 third of The Generic Travel Guide to Bora Bora, insisting that you just received it as a gift yesterday, when the 45th edition is now on the shelf.

"The book is blue, and it has a butterfly on the cover," is NOT an adequate description of the book you are looking for. I can only do so much. I know books, but I don't have every title in our inventory memorized.

That is all. For now.
