Inspirational Mondays

Was amused by an article in a newspaper recently about a book written by someone who has worked in a book store for some years. Her book was a compilation of inane/funny/stupid comments or questions from her customers and was such a success he asked for fellow shop owners for their own examples including:

  • The customer who asked for an illustrated copy of Fifty Shades (and they can't wait for the film??)
  • The man who wanted to buy a pink book for his wife because women like pink things….. (I'm not even going to comment on that one!)
  • The elderly female customer who said that she couldn’t believe everyone was reading Fifty Shades as she’d been there, done that and had no need to read about it! (Good on her!)
  • The customer who asked which dieting book was better: WeightWatchers or The Hunger Games.......!
  • The person who wanted a really awful book for someone they hate. (Wow!)
  • One who commented, upon looking at an art book, that Picasso must have gone out with some really ugly women. (hahahaha!)
  • The customer who only liked books they could believe in… like Twilight! (Okayyyy....)

And my favourite, the person who decided to buy Gulliver’s Travels as they were thinking of going travelling………………
