Cruel Co-op

Me to BAM Clerk: Why are there e-readers all over the hardcover bestsellers table?

Clerk: That's our new e-reader display, ma'am.

Me: You don't sell an e-reader. (Eyes one of them) Wait a minute. That's Barnes & Noble's e-reader. They're your competition.

Clerk: Oh, we're selling the Nook now too, ma'am. Would you like to try--

Me: Where are the hardcovers?

Clerk: But ma'am, it will only took a minute for me to demonstrate--

Me: Tell where the books are, right now, or I'm going to hurt you.
