Customers 11

A woman came to the register and asked for a book she'd had put on hold. "It's that new one, The Power." She looked to be in her 60's or 70's, had a bronze helmet of hair, heavy silver jewelry, a low-cut silver satin blouse with a silver fabric mesh jacket over it. "If you haven't read her first one (The Secret), you should", she told me. "It's absolutely wonderful. You should read this one too! You should read both of them!"

The Power(Amazon)(Barnes and Noble)


A thin, dark-haired man came up to the register with two books. Coping with Anxiety and The Emotional Brain. He signed his credit card slip with the tiniest signature I've ever seen.

Coping with Anxiety: 10 Simple Ways to Relieve Anxiety, Fear & Worry(Amazon)(Barnes & Noble)


We often find empty wrappers from the Men's Sophisticates (Penthouse, Playboy, etc.) magazines. And then we find the actual magazines. Later. In the men's bathroom. Behind the toilet seat cover holders. Or in the baby changing fixture. Or on the floore. Ick.
