I'm a Wrecky Master!
Setting the scene: Today, I covered for a friend who wanted to play hooky and go to the Renn Faire ( a noble cause). The following conversation took place at his bookstore.
Woman rushes in, 5 minutes after closing.
Me: We're actually closed, but I can still ring you up if you're looking for something specific".
Woman: "I'm looking for Rac*mumblemuble *for Dummies".
Me: "All of our 'For Dummies' books are just over here".
5 minutes later
Woman: "I don't see it. Do you see it?"
Me: "I'm sorry, I didn't quite understand. What were you looking for?"
Woman: "Wrecky for Dummies."
Me: *long pause* "Do you mean Reiki?"
Woman: "Uh-huh. It's an exercise system" *mimes jumping-jacks*
Me: " It's actually a healing system... a specific type of energy work".
Woman: *Gazes intently at bookshelf* "Yeah. I'm thinking about teaching it"
You can't make this shit up.
