I hate me part 888,751

Older middle aged guy, a little drinky, looking through the new arrivals LP rack

Yeah, so records are back, are these in any order?

I explained our filing system

So, no good stuff…I’m surprised you don’t have the good…popular stuff.

Well, popular stuff sells.

Yeah, but are you telling me people are still buying the Stones?

Yeah, Rolling Stones records sell.

Really? I took my daughter to see ‘em…so…you have a guy in his 50’s taking a 30 year old to see a 70 year old…amazing…so where’s the good stuff?…Olton John, I don’t see his stuff in the O’s

Well, his name is Elton John and we file him in the J’s

Oh… so where’s the good stuff?

I did a fake phone call and hid in the back until he left

I hate me, part 829,040

Call gets sent to the back counter, looking for a dvd, sounds like a middle aged guy.

Yeah, I’m looking for the Bruce Davidson Willard, not that other piece of garbage

(Willard is a 1971 movie about a guy who trains rats to kill for him, it was remade in 2003 with Crispin Glover)

Ok..let me check

*heavy sigh* ok

It’s just available as a dvd/Blu-ray combo. Which means 2 discs, one is a Blu-ray and one is a regular dvd. We don’t have it but we can order it in

Yeah, I ain’t got a Blu-ray

Well there’s two discs in the package, one is a regular dvd and one is a Blu-ray

Why do they do that?

I don’t know, man.

So you have it in the store

No, we have to order it in, takes about a week, it’s $24.99

An that’s for a blu-ray that I ain’t gonna watch and a regular dvd

Yup

So, you guys ain’t got it?

We do not

*Click*

Not that other piece of garbage
