I Hate Me, part 156,390 / I LIKE RECORDS 75

A while back we got in a used copy of a Jimi Hendrix box set (West Coast Seattle Boy). It’s an eight lp set and this copy was missing album #6 and had two copies of album #7. We put it out used and I marked it explaining what was wrong with it. This middle aged guy came in, he sounded like he was from eastern europe. His english was halting and hard to understand.
Guy-So this is missing six albums…why should I buy?
me-No…it’s missing album NUMBER 6…there are eight lp’s in the box
Guy-No, six lp’s are missing not eight
me-no…no….grrruuuuuuhhh…there are eight lp’s (I held up eight fingers)…but there are…are two…two of one of them…soooooo…while there are eight (I held up 8 fingers again) albums IN THE BOX…there are only SEVEN (I held up 7 fingers)different albums…one of them is in there twice.
Guy-uhhhhh…
me-mmmmmmm?
Guy-uhhhhhh…may…be
I walked back behind the counter and went about pricing records, a couple of minutes later…
Guy-Do you have Budgie Yes?
me-we have a bunch of Yes albums but no Budgie
Guy-No Yes, Budgie Yes?
[AAAAAUGGHHHHH!]
me-uhhhh…uhhhhh…so…uhhh NO Yes…just Budgie?
Guy-Yes
me-sorry, no Budgie
I went back behind the counter again and went back to pricing records. I figured shit lightning could only strike twice, but…
Guy-Dave Brombeck
me-David Bromberg or Dave Brubeck?
Guy-Yes
me-no…no…it’s one or the other…David Bromberg is folk (I mimed playing a mandolin or a tiny guitar)…Dave Brubeck is Jazz (mimed playing piano)
Guy-where?
I pointed out where the two sections were on my way out the door for an emergency coffee.

    Thanks Tim!

    You should have resorted to mime and interpretive dance. I wish I could see you do interpretive dance one day. It’s my daydream… (blush)

      Oops, you did resort to mime. Sorry, my bad. I’m still fantasising about the interpretative dance, though.

      Wait a minute ….. that’s one big ass blotter paper you got there, with one tab missing.

      I want the leaf on the upper right corner ….. it’s the most colorful one, probably get the best results ………. “Wow, the colors, the colors”

    spank, are you a cop?

    Ok, ok, I smoked the missing leaf. But you know what? The paper was originally twice that size, and I smoked the whole other half! Ha! There, I said it. And I’m stoned right now.

      “are you a cop?”

      OH HELL NO ……. but shhhhh, I’m currently working undercover for the justice dept. to expose and capture over-pricing record store clerks, so don’t go blowing my cover, or I’ll be coming after you next for obstruction of fair used records pricing justice.

        I promise to keep my mouth shut. I think your work is very important. Over-pricing used records is a crime against humanity and people committing such horrific crimes should be spanked.
