Saving a place

October 20th, 2009 Posted in I heart Sarah Palin, Libtards

A woman came in last night looking for a book by some feminist author that I had never heard of before, no big surprise there.   So, I look it up in our search engine and the computer says that we might have it in the store.  MIGHT have it, not WILL.  So I tell her that I can check our inventory and see if it’s there and show her the section it would be in.

“No, that’s fine, I’ll find it myself.  I’m going to look around a bit first”

Ten minutes later, as I’m showing another customer to 1984 I run across her in Literature looking around and she barges in to the conversation I’m having with my customer and sneers “Where is the section on Women’s rights?”

I tell her again “It’s upstairs and I’ll be happy to take you to it as soon as I am done here.”

“No, I can find it myself.”  Note the lack of a ‘thank you’.

Sooo, as you can probably guess, I end up helping another customer find the Christianity section, which is upstairs, and as we get to the top of the escalator that same woman is standing in the middle of Independent Readers YELLING “Is there SOMEONE ACTUALLY WORKING here who can HELP ME!!!!”

Once again (because we were slammed with customers) I offer to show her the section and she is bitching the whole way about how the women’s studies section should be near the front of the store because it’s so important and how this author’s book  should be on display because she’s doing a signing tour in California right now and she’s a NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST!!

Well, we get there and we have no copies.  She flips her shit over it and repeats how wonderful this writer is and how we should all be required to read her crap and then says “Why don’t you have 900 copies here?!?!  You have plenty of room!  Her book should be displayed all over the store to inspire women everywhere about what they can do!”

I had to.

I know it was wrong but what can you do when the set up is that perfect?

“Well, ma’am, we were going to but we’re saving that spot for Sarah Palin.”

**update**

Welcome to everyone from Brutally Honest, Texas4Palin, wizbang and elsewhere else in the interwebs.  Thanks for the linking and I must say I am stunned that this has been so popular.  Now all I can ask for is a signed copy of “Going Rogue” with the inscription “Instinct,   Thanks for saving me a spot – Sarah”

That would be most awesome.

    Love it! I just hope none of the books were damaged by the steam coming out of her ears.

    Just think of the damage you would have done had you said “Phyllis Schaffly” instead.


  3. Instinct Says:

    No books were damaged by her exploding head, and your right AM, if I had been thinking faster that would have been even better 😀

    The above exerpt from POWIP is what brought me here. Great link to a great story.

    I take it this wasn´t a Barnes & Noble. If it were I have a feeling you would still be in captivity awaiting their shipment of Going Rogue, which they´d use to kindle the fire around the stake they have prepared to burn those would dare mention the name Palin in their liberal enclave.

    Well done.

    Ha! That’s awesome!

  13. Love That Lady Says:

    This NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST will learn something when she reads Going Rogue An American Life.
    Yes, she WILL read it, otherwise she will be the only one out of the loop, and no New York Times Columnist wants to be out of the loop.
    Yes, she Will read it because the book was #1 the day it came out on pre-oder sales.
    Yes, she Will read it because everyone will be talking about it.
    Yes, she Will read it because she Needs to know WHY? everyone loves Sarah Palin.
    Yes, she Will read it, otherwise she will have the deer in the headlights look and no New York Columnist whats to have the deer in the headlights look, not realizing that they already do.
    I pity them for bing CLUELESS as to what is going on around them.


  14. o Says:

    Love the story
    can you describe her facial expression? lol


  15. Instinct Says:

    It was the standard ‘Just hit by a board look’ followed by the head exploding storm away.

    I think many people find it inconceivable that a conservative, pro-military, former military, pro-gun guy works at a bookstore. They expect we should all be a bunch of college hippies or touchy-feely liberals.

    I’m very happy to disappoint them on that one


  16. Overeducated Twit Says:

    *sigh* Thanks, lady, for giving feminists a bad name. I’m no Sarah Palin fan, but I can’t say I wouldn’t have been tempted to respond in similar fasion to her bad manners…


  17. Instinct Says:

    Naw, she just gave HERSELF a bad name.
