ME: A suburban mom
20ISH GUY: a Barnes and Noble Employee
30ISH WOMAN: another Barnes and Noble Employee. Possibly 20ISH GUYS boss.
[A Barnes and Noble in Tampa, Florida. The suburban mom walks into the music section of the store. The 20ISH GUY approaches the new customer.]
20ISH GUY: Can I help you find something ma’am?
ME: Yes. I am looking for the new Dethklok album.
20ISH GUY: [puzzled] Death? Clock? [Trying not to laugh. You he was expecting her to be looking for the Josh Groban Christmas CD.]
ME: [beginning to feel uncomfortable, sort of] Yes. I think it is called the “Dethalbum“. It is a two discs.
20ISH GUY: [goes to the counter and approaches 30ISH WOMAN and a computer. Then, to the woman:] Death Clock? [he starts typing]
ME: I think it is D-E-T-H-K [She stops spelling because she is feeling really stupid.]
30ISH Woman: What is Death Clock?
ME: It is a band from a cartoon. It could be under Metalocalypse.
20ISH Man: What kind of cartoon?
ME: You know, one on Adult Swim. It is about a Death Metal band that is the third largest economy in the world. [At this point she just feels like a lunatic. Wants to leave the store.]
30ISH WOMAN: Here is an adult swim DVD…
20ISH GUY: OH! Dethklok. It’s one word.
ME: [Looking around furtively, just trying to escape.]
30ISH WOMAN: Huh. Okay “The Dethalbum“. We don’t have any, but I can order it for you.
ME: No thanks. I don’t live here.
[Suburban Mom runs away. Employees mock her once she is gone. Suburban Mom feels like an idiot and goes home so that she can tell the internet all about it.]
