No Book for You!
by Ron Gavalik on October 7th, 2013

After having lunch with my brother today, I ran over to Barnes & Noble to do a little work and have a coffee. Knowing that Palahniuk's new book, Doomed was due out tomorrow (Tuesday), I decided to hit up a group of bookstore workers.

Me: "I know you have the Palahniuk book in the storeroom."
Book Girl: "Sure do."
Me: "Can I please have a copy."
Book Girl: "No."
**Other two book people laugh.**
Me: "Please."
Book Girl: "We'll get in trouble."
Me: "How about giving me a copy and I'll come back tomorrow and pay for it?"
Book Girl: "No."
Me: "Fine. I'll come back tomorrow."
**All of them laugh at my failure.**

You have no idea how tempted I was to just bust into that storeroom, disguised as a hipster, plaid shirt wearing book retailer and just snag a copy. Oh well. Tomorrow, tomorrow, and tomorrow.
