Before I tell you about my not so happy encounter, I'll begin with the hour prior. I was in the children's section doing my thing. I sold a lot of books including two copies of Underneath by Appelt, two copies of Louise, the Adventures of a Chicken by Dicamillo, one Crooked Kind of Perfect by Urban, one Ellie Mcdoodle: Have Pen, Will Travel by Barshaw, one Coraline by Gaiman. I was able to sell and talk about kids books it was a very good hour. When you work retail its hours like that, that remind you why you put up with all the crap. Now I shall tell you about my crappy encounter that F'd up my happy retail high. While I was at the registers a man comes in sees a political display and ask if we are Pro Obama. I hate this question because anyone who poses it is always looking for a fight. And since when is Obama Nation by Corsi (great title) a Pro Obama book. I said no we are Pro Green. I probably shouldn't have said that because customers will tell on you real quick, but I didn't care. Its a stupid question. There is no red or blue in retail only green.
