Waiting for Sales

One of my more irritating customers (I use the term through gritted teeth - not sure he has ever actually bought anything)was drooling over a book I had just put out yesterday. A first edition hardback in mint wrapper, on farming in England. A whole £5.

"Oh this is lovely" he slobbered. "If you still have it in January, I'll snatch your hand off for it in your half price sale"

I really wanted to actually say something... but I am speechless. A fiver for heaven's sake!!!

He's probably royalty, the nit.
