Customer 27

A white haired man in khaki colored cargo shorts and a bright orange t-shirt came up to the register. He had a magazine and the book PSYCHIC INTELLIGENCE.


"Did you find everything you were looking for?" I asked as he put his items down on the counter.

"Boy did I! That guy back there at the desk was GREAT, he got me exactly what I needed! He doesn't know how much he helped me out," he said, shaking his head and smiling.

"Well, good!" I said.

"My wife is in the car, and we are going to this birthday party, and this is the gift. I was supposed to get this like a week ago, and of course, I didn't get it then. I waited until now. My wife, she's in the car, and she is fuming. Before I got out of the car she told me that that book had better be in there. She's pretty mad." He paused. "You guys really saved me. Here is the book, he found it right away, and look at this!" He shows me his watch. "We won't even be late for the birthday party!"

"We do free gift wrapping too," I said. "Would you like us to wrap it?"

"Oh wow! That would be great!", he said, even more enthused than he was before. "That you had this book, the book for the present, that that guy back there found for me right away, and now you're going to wrap it? That is the best. You guys really bailed me out here. Thank you so much. You guys are the best."

I called another bookseller to come up and wrap the book for him. As soon as she got to the wrapping station, he launched into telling her how great it was that we had the book at the last minute. Glad we could help!
