The Joys of Working in a Bookshop – #1

This woman called the shop a moment ago.

Me: *tries to help her look for an annoyingly unfindable ancient book that’s out of print, while attempting to ignore smacking sounds on the other end of the line*
Woman: “I’m eating, I hope you don’t mind.”
Me: “No, no, of course not.”

YES LADY I TOTALLY  DO MIND.

Really? Really? She couldn’t wait ’till she’d finished eating before picking up the bloody phone? And talking to me FOR NINE WHOLE MINUTES WHILE EATING? REALLY?
