| Fairbanks, AK, USA |

(I am a girl working the customer service counter. A male customer comes up with eerily direct eye contact.)

Me: “Hello, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I would like books on seduction.”

Me: “All right. If you follow me, I’ll show you to our relationship section.”

(I walk him over to the section.)

Customer: “I want books on seduction.”

Customer: “All right, I’ll look at these.”

(I return to the customer service desk. The customer returns a few minutes later.)

Me: “Anything else I can help you with?”

Customer: “Do you have any books on hypnosis?”

Me: “…”
