Conversations I'm Tired of Having With Customers--Addendum
"Do you have Amazing Caber-Man #12, 13, 14 and 15?"
Nope, looks like I only have #13. "Oh, so you don't have #12, 14 or 15?"
No, just #13. "So, you're missing #12, 14 and 15?"
Yes. We are missing #12, 14 and 15. We only have #13. "Oh. So you have #13."
"Do you have Luscious Lucy Jackson #1?"
Which series? The original series or the more recent one? "I don't like the new series. I don't like what they've done with the character. I think it has to do with the new management. They clearly don't care about the character's history. And by disrespecting the history, they're disrespecting the fans. And if it wasn't for the fans, they wouldn't have jobs. And I really wish they would take their resposibilities to both the characters and the fans more seriously. Because one of these days the fans aren't going to take it anymore. We're going to demand that the character and the audience be treated with the respect they deserve. And then they'll be out of jobs. Not that I really want them to lose their jobs. Because I'm sure they're nice people. But maybe being forced to work for a living will make them realize the huge debt they owe to us fans and why it is important to treat the characters they way they should be treated."
So, that's the original series you're looking for then?
"I object to the events depicted in the latest issue of Big Comics Event Comics. It's completely inappropriate to introduce serious real-world elements into escapsit fiction."
Okay, try this. Happy Super Fun Time Comics Guaranteed to contain no objectionable material. "But that's for kids!"
