In Which I Disappoint A Customer

College Student: "Do you have Cliffs Notes for the Republic, by Plato?"
Me: "Sure, right here."
College Student: (frowning) "Oh. You haven't got the skinny one?"
Me: "The skinny one?"
College Student: "There's a Cliffs Note for this that's skinnier..."
Me: (gently) "I'm sorry, that's the least substantial one available."
