Yesterday,Random Guy called the store and spoke with my coworker about Overstreet Price Guides. He wanted to know which volumes we had, and if he could get any for free.
Coworker informed that we did not have any available for free, and he hung up.
Today, while I'm trying to get some work done, he came in and did a live action performance of Chris Rock's character from I'm Gonna Git You Sucka.
Random Guy: "You sure you don't have any old guides?"
Me: "Yes. Just the new ones."
RG: "But they're from the summer, right?"
RG: "Since it's been out for six months, I shoud get half off, right?"
Me: "No. It's cover price."
RG: "Thirty percent off?"
Me: "I'm really busy right now. It's cover price. No discount. No deal. No old issues."
RG: "I'll give you ten dollars."
Me: "It's thirty and tax."
RG: "Thirty dollars? Are you serious? How about twelve?"
Me: "Thirty and tax."
I, literally, turn my back to him and start counting books.
RG: "Twenty dollars."
RG: "You sure you don't have any old price guides in a back room?"
Me: "Yeup. I can't help you. Have a great day."
RG: "Twenty-five dollars?"
RG: "If I gave you five dollars, could you just let me borrow it for a couple of days? You could pocket the money. I wouldn't tell anyone."
RG; "It's like nobody wants to make money anymore."
