This comic reaches far back into my book-selling memories. While what is presented in todays comic is inspired from an experience I had during the first six months of working at The Bookstore, the lady saying “take me!” wasn’t old. She was maybe late thirties. I was in the kids section when she asked me to find some picture book. I almost feel that it’s differently creepy what happened with the real customer I fielded. When she said “take me!” I shook my head, rolled my eyes, and showed the lady to where her book could be found. She kept going on that take me tangent though. Saying how I was really lucky to hear that from her. That she hasn’t found many opportunities to say “Take me” in a while.
So, there ya go.
