A mother and daughter await as I return to the info desk.
"Can I help you?"
"Yes....Well, I am going to be one of THOSE customers - you know, the one you go home and tell your wife about...", the mother says to me.
"You don't mean one of those customers who is looking for a book, but you can't remember the name or author, I saw on a table up front here not that long ago, and it had a green cover?" I replied.
"Exactly, it did have a green cover!", she exclaimed. "But I think I remember the title."
"Really? What is that?"
"The Green Book."
We all laugh.
"Seriously?", I say in that sarcastic way that only I can.
"OK-let me see what the magic computer says..."
"Well, what do you know - such a book indeed exists, and we should have it. It could be in a few places - let me check while you wait here. Of course, if I never come back it just validates that you are indeed one of THOSE customers..."
[SEARCH FOR BOOK - SUCCESS!]
[RETURN TO INFO DESK]
"Found it - here you are."
"Dude, you're a rock star!"
"Well, I do what I can."
