Bookstore | Bridgeport, OR, USA
Customer: “Hello, do you have any of the new Twilight books?”
Me: “Yes, they’re over here.”
(I lead her to where they would be, but we appear to be sold out. This is strange as all copies were put up this morning.)
Me: “That’s strange. We seem to be out of stock. Can I interest you in anything else?”
Customer: “Ugh, fine. What about this one?”
(They point towards ‘Harry Potter’.)
Me: “Oh, that’s a great book! It’s about a boy who becomes a wizard and-”
Customer: “Are there any werewolves?”
Me: “I think so. I haven’t read them in a while.”
(The customer grabs the entire series of ‘Harry Potter’ and leaves. As I’m about to return to my workstation, two teens run up to me, high-five each other, and tell me they hid all 70 copies of ‘Twilight’ in the ceiling when no one was looking. Although impressed, I have to report them to my manager. After doing so, my manager gives them each a $10 gift card.)

Must be the same place Stephanie Meyer got her degree in English Language – School of Can’t Write, Get Rich.
I really can’t believe this. Twilight is really badly written – unless Prof Garcha is teaching a class on How Not to Write.
It’s a possibility, but not one I really believe in.
