Not just me

It isn't only me !!!

I was in Waterstones the other day (I know - just looking at recently published titles - honest Your Honour), when I overheard the following.

"Hello, can you point me to the sellotape, and the children's toys please"

"Children's toys madam, we don't sell children's toys"

"Why not, you should do"

"No, we sell books madam"

"Why don't you sell children's toys?"

"Because we are a bookshop, why don't you try Woolworth's opposite"

"You mean this isn't Woolworths.... Well why didn't you tell me?"

So other bookshops do get them as well.

Perhaps all the shops get stupid people :-)
