The final piece of Allie’s email talks about how Allie gets a lot of “customers that ramble on and on about conspiracy theories…sometimes I engage them, but mostly I nod n’ smile.”

I’ve had plenty of crazy people come into the store and talk at me for extended periods of time. Our regular, Ginger, was always there the minute we opened for business in the morning ready to talk about how aliens landed in Greenland or whatever. It’s hard to get a word in edge wise with these types. They at least make for an interesting day at work.

“Hitler is coming back!” is from a customer that John had to deal with. We worked in the same store for over a decade and still have stories to swap that we’ve never heard yet! Bookstores attract all the crazy!
