Link Du Jour: What’s the Title?
The conversation you are about to read actually took place.
The Scene: BookMine, an old and rare book dealer
Customer: Hi, I am looking for an old book.
Book Dealer: What’s the title?
Customer: I don’t remember.
Book Dealer: OK. Who is the author?
Customer: Sorry, can’t remember that either.
Book Dealer: OK, you are making it a little tough here. What was it about?
Customer: I don’t remember. But it was my favorite book when I was little.
Book Dealer: I don’t think I can help you.
Customer: OK, thanks for your help.
At the BookMine website, they have a page devoted to the many, shall we say, unusual phone, email, and face to face interactions with customers that have occurred over the years – including the one above. Hilarity comes early and often. Click here to read.
