Two manga fans straight out of 2002 were sitting on the floor of our temporarily crowded store, chatting about gender and how, like, they totally don't, like, get, like, homosexuals (they kept using the word "homosexuals", and somehow giving it seven syllables), and, like, what even is trans, isn't it, like, the same thing as, like, homosexuals anyway?
And I don't want to dress down these two backwards capped idiot thirty-somethings in their flannel and ignorance but I'm starting to get heated.
And then, like, they start to, like, talk about how, like, manga isn't even, like, a thing anymore. And isn't it , like, dorky that they're even, like, looking at it. Hahaha.
But they're not looking at it, they're sitting on the floor with the books open, talking to each other about reading it.
And one of them says, "We used to do this all the time at Border's. It was so much fun. What ever happened to Border's? I haven't seen one in, like, forever."
And My Hero, a guy who'd been in the store for their whole performance, said "They went out of business because people like you sat in the middle of the floor and never bought anything."
And then left.
Without buying anything.
He bought something.
And then the store emptied out.
