Customers 10

Two women, in maybe their early 60's, both with spangles on their shirts, bleached hair, designer purses, came to the counter. One bought four books: Relationship Rescue by Phil McGraw, 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work by John Gottman, Contemplating Divorce by Susan Pease Gadoua, and Why Marriages Succeed or Fail, also by John Gottman.

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work: A Practical Guide from the Country's Foremost Relationship Expert     Why Marriages Succeed or Fail: And How You Can Make Yours Last     Relationship Rescue: Exercises and Self-Tests to Help You Reconnect with Your Partner                              
Contemplating Divorce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Deciding Whether to Stay or Go


Andre the Giant came into the store last night. Well, okay, it wasn't him (since he died in 1993), but it was someone who looked like him. With a Marine haircut. Even though the customer wasn't anywhere near Andre's 7'4" height, this guy looked so much like him, his voice even sounded like him, and his hands were the largest hands I've ever seen. Super nice. He bought the book Medal of Valor. And a large Playboy book in a box.

A dark haired man, early-mid 20's, scraggly beard, t-shirt, hat, with a 2 inch scar across the side of his neck bought the Anxiety and Phobia Workbook.

                    The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook, Fourth Edition

Perhaps his phobia is related to knives.
