and welcome back to Overhead in the Comic Shop...[ i recently fell off the face of the blogosphere, i guess u call it, when the computer here at the comic book store died a few weeks back and have been struggling to get myself back into the innernette like i was at one point
(here's a pic of the hole where the computer was not while it was dead)
...it's kinda like workin out everyday and then takin a few weeks off and bein lazy and building your steam back up into the mood to work out again (i am also in the process of doin this very task)]...but anyway here's a new overheard in the comic shop that just happened no longer ago than it took me to write this paragraph [ if you can call this a paragraph ]...
Old Lady buying Spider-man #583 [ yes we still sell that damn book at least once a day ]:
"could i have a plastic bag to carry it?"
" yea sure you can."
Old Lady who loves Obama in Spider-man comics [ she wouldn't buy the Bio Comic form IDW ]:
"cause i have a cane and need the plastic bag to carry it."
wtf!? you can't carry it in a paper bag because you have a cane?...i know plastic bags have handles ... but seriously...just hold the paper bag?...and i right or am i being an asshole?
