Today I was at the register to collect books for reshelving when a guy comes up with his teenage daughter and says, straight faced, "I'm the 100th customer, I get a free book." The girl at register and I just stare blankly at him, eyebrows slightly raised as he repeats himself twice more. His daughter says, absolutely mortified, "I'm so sorry, he does this absolutely everywhere!" We smile at the girl and chat with her about her book choice, while the dad quietly pays, dwelling on his awful joke.
He needs a babysitter while she goes shopping. She can’t take him anywhere. -Abby
