weird things customers have said in my bookshop #3

It astounds me that people can’t grasp the ridiculously simple concept of a book being ‘out of print’.

It is out of print. Not being printed anymore.


The publisher is out of stock and is not currently planning to print more soon so we can’t order it.

“Why not?”

(At this point I am screaming inside) Because there’s not any to order.

“Why not?”

(I am audibly frustrated) Because the publisher hasn’t printed any recently.

“So you can’t get it?”


“Well, you’re no help to me then.” *customer angrily hangs up*

Long list of expletives.
