Today I got to say the P-word at work.
You know penis...

A guy came in and pulled a book from the shelf called Venus Envy. (I know, I giggled at the play on words, too, but it really isn't a good book. And I own a bookstore. And I've heard from others that they didn't enjoy it. So I consider myself a semi-expert on good books. I digress...)

So anyway this guy (we'll call him CHCWNT) pulls Venus Envy from the shelf.

CHCWNT: I don't get it.
ME: What's that?
CHCWNT: The title. Venus Envy? What does that mean? I don't get it.
ME: *blink*blink*blink*
ME: WELLLLL... I think it's a play on words.
CHCWNT: What words?
ME: *blink*bink*blink*
ME: Um...Penis.
CHCWNT: HUH?!?!
ME: PENIS. I think it's supposed to be a play on PENIS ENVY.

and then he says?

CHCWNT: It's too tight here, I can't get it back in... (as he tried to shove the book back on the shelf)


NOTE: OK, I realize in my own juvenile, crude mind this might only be funny to me to link together an innocent conversation like this, but, hey, whatever. A girl has to amuse herself somehow.

Um... It's not just you! But you coulda guessed that I would have thought it was funny.

I gotta know, what is CHCWNT an abbreviation for? or did i miss it in between the lines (I hate when that happens)?

No, you didn't miss it. I didn't add it because, honestly? It was just too much to add to the blog. It's a WHOLE OTHER DIMENSION to this customer.

CHCWNT=Crack Head Customer With No Teeth

(seriously)

Ok, let me be honest. THREE TEETH (maybe)

Sounds like you have a pretty swanky clientele.
