First call of the day, setting the tone:
Random Caller "Hi. Do you buy comics?"
Me: "Not too often, but there are some things we're looking for. You're best bet is to call back Wednesday after 6 or Friday and Saturday during the day to talk to our buyer."
RC: "Ok. When should I call?"
I throw the phone into a vat of lava.
Me: (screaming into the lava, obviously) "Wednesday after six or Friday and Saturday 11-5."
RC: "Ok. Than--"
Me: "And you should have a list prepared of what comics you are trying to sell. It goes much faster that way."
RC: "Well, that's easy. I have the second season of The Walking Dead."
Me: "The....the second issue?"
RC: "The collection."
Me: "Hardcover, trade paperback, or giant omnibus?"
Me: "We....we don't sell DVDs here. Just comics."
RC: "But you could sell Walking Dead DVDs."
Me: "Nope.We have no room for DVDs. You can still call the buyer if you'd like, but he's going to say no. You're better off trying Newbury Comics or someone that deals in DVDs,"
RC: "But it's a comics TV show. Why don't you sell it?"
Me: "When you hang up are you going to try and sell your Fast & Furious DVDs to a car dealership? Or your Top Chef DVDs to a restaurant? We don't sell DVDs. I'm sorry."
