Default Annoying person!

Me: Awesome game store manager!
SP: Clueless person that I really dont want to call a customer.

Me: Ma'am, you cannot sit on the floor and read the comic books.
SP: You mean I have to buy the comic if I want to read it?
Me: That is exactly what that means, this is a retail store not a library. There is a price tag on the sealed comic book protector that you opened.
SP: *automatic CBF (cat butt face)* Then I am never shopping here again!
Me: Can I have that in writing? Sorry Ma'am but that is the rules.
SP: *Leaves store with a very angry look on her face*

Ummm... Shopping means looking to buy something. Opening a sealed comic book and reading it isn't shopping. How can they say they are never shopping there again if they were not shopping in the first place?

Sounds like she wasn't shopping there in the first place! How can some people be so obtuse?

They opened a sealed comic book? I can't believe you didn't charge them for that! Man they got off light!

This is something that irritates me about going to the book store: people treat it like a library. They sit there sipping on a coffee and reading a book that is suppose to be sold as a new product. They will read a whole book and put it back without even buying it...

I'd... have made them pay for it. Since the packaging was opened and the comic book was now 'lightly used', could you even sell it at full price still?

Arcus beat me to it. "Ma'am, you're not shopping here now." Although then I supposed you'd have gotten "But I was gonna buy it!!"

I will read a book at a bookstore... but only a book I have already bought or intend to buy before I walk out. Only exception is if the book doesn't hold my interest in the first few pages; then I will put it back.
