There are needy customers and then there are NEEDY customers. I’ve gone through a few phone calls with someone on the other line who keeps adding ONE MORE THING to their list. The worst aspect of it all is that they’re usually comparison shopping while you’re trying to help them. If you don’t have the whole list of what they’re after they’ll drop you like a hot rock.

And then there’s the case of mistaken stores. We had it happen a bit more frequently when there were 10 or more Bookstores within a 50 mile radius, but it still happens now from time to time. But no matter how many or how few neighboring stores there are, having someone say, in so many words, “Nevermind,” can cause a blood vessel or two to burst out of frustration.
