We were short handed and pretty busy and a guy came up to the counter looking for some smooth jazz. Contrary to the mellow grooves of smooth jazz, most smooth jazz customers are hyper and a bit contentious.
Guy- yeah, I’m looking for some Bob Baldwin
Me-Bob Baldwin? Sure we should have some.
Guy- no, Bob Baldwin
(I am confused because that’s what I just said)
Me- Baldwin, B-A-L-D-W-I-N ?
Me- well could you spell it then?
Me-I don’t think that’s a real name, I’ll look it up (I type in the name. Nothing). Yeah, there’s nothing listed with that name… We do have stuff by Bob Baldwin, B-A-L-D-W-I-N
Guy-naaah, I’ll just look around
FIVE MINUTES LATER
Guy- I know how to spell it
Me-alright, let’s go
Me-(interrupting) yeah, I know how to spell BOB
Me-that’s what I’ve been saying!
He bought no cd’s
