never tell anyone to sell their friends

The other day a patron asked me to find a book on Care Bears.

"Would you like a story book?" I asked.

"No, I'd like one about collectibles," she responded.

"Ah," I said. "Would you like pricing information for selling them?" I asked.

She leaned in, and with her hand, smacked the desk with every syllable. "I would never sell any of my friends," she hissed, as her face flushed, rather appropriately, the exact shade as Love-A-Lot Bear.

  1. I felt that way when I sold our cars recently, but a person simply can't go through life keeping everything he or she grows to love.
