The Season of Stupid

Last year there was this lovely gem.

Each year during the week before Christmas I leave my laptop at home and step onto the sales floor for a full eight hours of sheer hell. By the time I go home on Friday I'm limping and bleeding, sobbing from questions such as this:

Ensie: Hello, can I help you?

Stupid Customer: Can you check on a book for me?

E: Sure. What is it you are looking for?

SC: Um, it's called Control Room. It's by, uh, Jazeera. Mr. Al Jazeera.

E : Do you possibly mean the documentary Control Room about the Al Jazeera network?

SC: There's nothing out there by an author named Al Jazeera?

E: No.

SC: OK, never mind then.

I cannot make this shit up, people.
