Years ago, when I liked Ann Coulter a lot more, I went to a B&N to buy her latest book. It was on the NYT best seller list and was a top book at Amazon as well. B&N didn’t carry it. They explained that it “wasn’t that popular”.
Also, I once bought three books from B&N. The cashier was some freakish young guy with piercings, tattoos, and gauges in his ears. He picked up the first book, scanned it, picked up the second book, scanned it, reached for the third book and noticed it was a Bible. He tried not to touch it. He used a pinky finger to nudge it over the laser scanner. It wasn’t easy, but he rang up that last sale with minimal physical contact.
They are a despicable store. Amazon has it’s own issues, but I shop Amazon rather than B&N.
“He used a pinky finger to nudge it over the laser scanner.”
The brainwashing that freak must have experienced was probably quite harsh.
It’s funny ... If they think anything religious is “stupid” or “fiction” or whatever, why do they freak out over anything dealing with it? It’s not just their stupid “separation of church and state” protests and similar nonsense ... They could witness two men going at it in an alley and their training forces them to view it as an expression of love while a kid saying a prayer causes them to freak out. Ponderous man ... Freakin’ ponderous.
Sounds like you found a genuine vampire... he was afraid touching a holy object would burn him!
