Another reason we're not the library

All the stores in our downtown, like every other downtown I've ever been to, have apartments above the main floor stores. Once in a while you can hear something from them, vacuuming and things that get dropped are the most common. It's by no stretch loud however.

Customer: What's that sound?
Me: It sounds like one of the people in the apartments upstairs are vacuuming.
Customer:Oh, can you ask them to stop?
Me: Um... not really.
Customer: Well it's bothering me.
Me: I'm sorry about that. There really isn't anything I can do about it. I imagine that they'll be done in a couple of minutes though.
Customer: Well, they really should know better than to make noise when you're open. You're a BOOKSTORE you know.

Whoa Nelly. I'm sure glad I never lived in the apartment above this guy. At least he knows what we sell though!

Haha, i laughed at this. Your writing style is really entertaining for me, and the way you emphasize stuff that's really odd is really good.
Keep them coming :)
