CUSTOMER: Which was the first Harry Potter book?
BOOKSELLER: The Philosopher’s Stone.
CUSTOMER: And the second?
BOOKSELLER: The Chamber of Secrets.
CUSTOMER: I’l take The Chamber of Secrets. I don’t want The Philosopher’s Stone.
BOOKSELLER: Have you already read that one?
CUSTOMER: No, but with series of books I always find they take a while to really get going. I don’t want to waste my time with the useless introductory stuff at the beginning.
BOOKSELLER: The story in Harry Potter actually starts right away. Personally, I do recommend that you start with the first book – and it’s very good.
CUSTOMER: Are you working on commission?
CUSTOMER: Right. How many books are there in total?
CUSTOMER: Exactly. I’m not going to waste my money on the first book when there are so many others to buy. I’l take the second one.
BOOKSELLER: … If you’re sure.
(One week later, the customer returns)
BOOKSELLER: Hi, did you want to buy a copy of The Prisoner of Azkaban?
CUSTOMER: What’s that?
BOOKSELLER: It’s the book after The Chamber of Secrets.
CUSTOMER: Oh, no, definitely not. I found that book far too confusing. I ask you, how on earth are children supposed to understand it if I can’t? I mean, who the heck is that Voldemort guy anyway? No. I’m not going to bother with the rest.

I think that’s it?? If you have any questions, please let me know!
Hey everyone! So summer is coming up and I was about to get a job (one more interview) and then my mom told me she prohibits me from getting one. No discussion. I tried convincing her but she just won’t let me, which makes a huge difference (some say to go behind her back or get it anyways) because my car has been broken down for three years and she won’t help me get it fixed. So NO TRANSPORTATION. And I’m trying to move out as soon as the opportunity opens so she is making this very very difficult (most likely on purpose). So here’s what you guys could do to help me! Those trees in the picture are wire wrapped necklaces I make by hand. I’m trying to sell as many as I can to get the money I need! Pricing goes as follows:
Bare Tree (right): $20
Tree With Leaves (left): $30
Tree With Moon (not in photo): $25
Tree With Moon and Leaves: (not in photo): $35
Custom Design: add $5 to starting price
I know these seem a little expensive to some people, but the wire is sterling silver, all stones are really nice quality, and it takes a lot of work to make each one.
If you’re interested, please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange an order (Most likely through PayPal, may arrange mail payment too)! I have many different stones and different wires to choose from, so custom designs are a lot of fun to set up!
Even if you’re not interested, if you could still share this that would be amazing. Thank you!!
