You're Not the Only One Here!

I attended a training meeting in another city today. The meeting was held inside another Bog's Hogs, located behind the Orange Curtain (Orange County, or "The O.C" if you're a big TV fan). Also present at the meeting were several staff members from other San Diego/Orange County stores and our District Manager.

Shortly after the meeting concluded, I began speaking with District Manager and a few other Bob's Hogs folk. As we spoke, our volume apparently increased so that a customer browsing nearby felt the need to turn around and shush us, rather harshly.

"You know, you're not the only one here!" she yelled down the aisle.

We all turned and stared, exposing our Bob's Hogs name tags to her, apparently further antagonizing her.

"You people all work here?" she hissed, eyes narrowing into slits.

"Yes. And we are very sorry to have disturbed you." offered one of my coworkers.

"Damn," District Manager let slip under her breath, prompting us all to giggle and receive further glares from the unhappy customer. DM continued, "You'd think she owned the store."

I love DM. I'll miss her when we leave.

The thing about a Bob's Hogs is that it's not a library. There's no rule that you have to be quiet at a bookstore. Granted, most people do make the effort so as not to disturb the people who *do* think it is a library (a library where you can pull all the books you want off the shelf, break the spines, sit and read and sip coffee and then walk off and leave the books in a big pile). Luckily the Erie BH&WP is not a quiet zone. People generally talk in a low voice, but no one is expected to whisper. I mean, the place is playing music for chrissakes.
