A while back my best friend at work, Awesome Office Checker K, spent some time in Hospital. While visiting him, I brought him several things to read during his stay. One of the things I brought him were my copies of "The Dresden Files" by Jim Butcher. He fell for those books SO HARD it was not funny. I will never forget the day at work he came up to me and Goes:

AOCK: I HATE YOU SO MUCH!
DDD: Why? What is it I am alleged to have done?
AOCK: I AM ON BOOK 5 AND I CAN'T STOP READING THEM!

So as I mentioned here http://customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?t=80152 My brother was willing to go to the book signing at the big bookstore where he lives for Ghost Story for me and get me a signed copy. Then an Evil Plan began to take form. I asked my brother to get me 2 copies and have 1 Signed to AOCK with the inscription "Sorry I hurt Michael" (his FAVORITE character). My brother agreed to this as he is a Good Egg, and when the books finally arrived. FMA and I went to the store when I knew he would be working. Now I have been telling him for some time I have an Evil Plan that effects him, and smiling that evil grin of mine. So we catch him and show him the book (closed) and say.

DDD: Come see the fruits of my evil plan.
AOCK: Oh I hate you.
DDD: I Don't know If I mentioned but my brother was able to go to a Book Signing For me...
AOCK: Oh YOU SUCK!
DDD: Check out the Inscription....

So he opens the book and sees....

After a second or 2 he puts on the biggest grin and begins to Laugh.

With A BroHug he tells me that it WASN'T an evil plan at all but a good thing.

It's really cool Butcher gave you an individual inscription. A lot of them won't, which I can understand when it's a long line or the third stop of the day, so it's really nice to get a personal note.
