Yesterday, I came back from a break and My Illustrious Coworker said "Do you know of any comic books based on Cartoon Network Shows from a decade or so ago?"
I thought out loud: "Powerpuff Girls? Dexter's Laboratory? Codename Kids Next Door? Samurai Jack?"
MIC: "There's a woman over there trying to find some."
Me (to both of them): "I think there's a Samura Jack collection that we just ordered, and there are occasional Powerpuff Girls books but that's all I can think of. About five or six years ago there was a crossover called Block Party or Crisis or something. Unfortunately, it's out of print, so it's going to be difficult to find."
Random Weirdo Who Requested The Info: "That's the one I meant."
Me: "Sorry. It's not available."
RWWRTI loudly sighs and then just stands at the counter, picking at things.Her body language says "My life has been complicated and full of grief at not being able to read any Johnny Bravo comics."
My Illustrious Coworker does an eyeroll in my direction, and RWWRTI picks up the stylus we use for signing on our iPad and starts pressing it with her finger, then against the counter, then she pulls out her phone and starts doodling the stylus on her phone, and then she puts the stylus and her phone in her purse.
That can't be right. She watched me watching her doodle with it. She MUST have dropped it. So when she starts wandering around the shelves, I go around and check the floor where she was standing, I look around the counter. Nope. No stylus.
After about four minutes, I'm blocking the door. As she approaches it to leave, I ask "Did you accidentally take our stylus? I saw that you were using it."
RWWRTI opens up her purse and pulls out the stylus. "Well, it was near the take a penny jar so I thought it was free."
And that's why I'm moving the Take A Penny Jar behind the counter so that nobody accidentally takes a Bat Signal or a Pop Figurine because, you know, it was NEAR the Take A Penny Jar.
