Weird things customers say in bookshops

CUSTOMER: Doesn’t it bother you, being surrounded by books all day? I think I’d be paranoid they were all going to jump off the shelves and kill me.
BOOKSELLER: . . .

CUSTOMER: What’s your name?
BOOKSELLER: Jen.
CUSTOMER: Hmmm. I don’t like that name. Is it ok if I call you something else?

CUSTOMER (to her friend, upon opening a copy of the Lord of the Rings): Oh, look, this one’s got a map in the front.
CUSTOMER’S FRIEND: Oh, yeah. Where’s it of?
CUSTOMER: Mor… Mor-dor.
CUSTOMER’S FRIEND: Oh. Where’s that then?

BOOKSELLER: Can I help you at all?
CUSTOMER: No, I don’t think you’re qualified. I need a psychiatrist; that’s the only help I need.
BOOKSELLER: . . . OK.

CUSTOMER: Do you have this children’s book I’ve heard about? It’s supposed to be very good. It’s called ‘Lionel Richie and the Wardrobe.’

BOY: Mummy, can I have this book?
WOMAN: Go and see if your dad will buy it for you.
BOY: Dad! Mummy says if you don’t buy me this book, then you can’t sleep in her bed tonight!

There is - of course - a book about this: Weird things customers say in bookshops
