Hell Is Other Customers

"WHEN did bookstores turn into flophouses? Just try to navigate the aisles of any of the big-chain booksellers on a weekend afternoon, or a weekday evening for that matter, and you're apt to feel like Vivien Leigh in that famous shot from ''Gone With the Wind'' as she attempts to get through the streets of Atlanta, which are choked with the sprawling bodies of the Confederate wounded."

i can't tell you how many times i've been in a B&N or Borders and wanted to clobber some shopper who was all over the books and magazines, bending pages, licking their fingers to page through them, eating food over them. it kills me. i grew up in a time when just holding a magazine would earn this from the shopkeeper: You going to buy that? i want to go up to these slobs and ask them. grrrr.

ok, sorry, i tantrummed. :/
