Interesting Purchases 2

A young woman, maybe early 20's, long layered brown hair, bright red lipstick, black clothes, asked a co-worker about greeting cards. He directed her toward the display. I was already there, putting cards away.

"Which one is the cheapest?", she asked.

"I don't know just by glancing at them, I'd have to look at each one, but I think the cheapest one is going to be "$2.50," I said.

"Well I want those, then," she said. "The cheapest ones."


An Asian man, late 20's or early 30's bought CREATIVE CURSING

           Creative Cursing: A Mix 'n' Match Profanity Generator


A woman in maybe her early 40's, long dark brown hair, with (who I guessed) was her teen-aged daughter came up to the register with two books. One was TOO GOOD TO LEAVE, TOO BAD TO STAY, the other was THE PORN TRAP

      Too Good to Leave, Too Bad to Stay: A Step-by-Step Guide to Help You Decide Whether to Stay In or Get Out of Your Relationship     The Porn Trap: The Essential Guide to Overcoming Problems Caused by Pornography

I'm sure they were good choices for the woman, but should she be buying them with her daughter?

  1. OK, I'm curious what kind of greeting the buyer of "the cheapest ones" got. Sounds like she wanted something like "Thinking of You...but not much!"
    The mix and match Creative Cursing looks funny and clever. Why am I surprised that the authors are women?
    As for the last customer - I agree.
    Another good post, thanks!

  2. She bought birthday cards, and wrote in them right there at the checkout line. One was to her brother. Boy, I'll bet he feels special!
