Dude comes into the store looking nervous and irritable. He walks to the section where we keep most of the non-Marvel/DC comics by popular creators and lets out a massive sigh.
"I ordered a book from you guys a week ago and nobody’s called me."
"What book?" I ask.
He tells me.
I smile. “Let me check the order book, here. Huh. Ok, it says your book came in on Friday, that we called you but your phone was out of service.”
He continues looking perturbed. “Yea. My phone hasn’t been working. Do you have it?”
I smile. “Yes. I have it right here.”
He grunts. “Next time, you guys should call.”
I velociraptor my head. “You just told me your phone hasn’t been working.”
He grunts again. “Yea. Fine.”
I smile as he hands me the money. “Would you like a bag with that?”
He rolls his eyes. “No.”
"Ok." I say. "Have a good day."
He shrugs his shoulders at me. “COULD I HAVE A BAG PLEASE?”
