Do you sell.......?

Regular readers will possibly remember the tale of the elderly lady who walked into the shop one day and asked if we sold cotton. At least that gave us a laugh. What is not so funny is people who come in and demand to know where your video tapes, mobile phone holders, shredders and guillotines are and then stalk out disgusted when you tell them we don't sell them!

One lady was particularly disgusted yesterday when I informed her that we did not sell blank video tapes.
"Well, you want to get some in!" she said, "I can't get them anywhere."

I'm on the phone ordering mountains of them as we speak...............:)

But the best of all is the three year old who came in this afternoon with his older brother and removed his dummy just long enough to ask where the Christmas hats were.
