Saturday, March 21, 2009're telling me you own comics

Guy came in with his son, who I would guess was no older than 12. After asking me a whole bunch of Watchmen questions, because he took his son to see it (really?), he starts to tell me what comics he owns in his collection. Like, all of them. Alllllllllllllllllllllllll of them.

And it doesn't sound like a bad collection, its a lot of '70's Marvel with a sprinkle of DC and some '80's thrown in. But I'm also in the middle of doing paperwork and entering orders and fairly obviously busy. I'm being polite and all though and just reply 'Oh, cool' and 'That's a good run' and so on the entire time.

An hour later, I think he finally finished telling me everything in his collection >_<

I really wasn't going anywhere with this, although I do fear for that kids sanity.

he sounds awful. not as bad as the kid with the calculator you mentioned the other day, but pretty awful.

and when i saw Watchmen i had a lady bring her 5 year old. he must have asked her 10 times "where's Batman?" real parent of the year material.

Sadly, the dude with the caculator is an adult >_<

Yeah, I've been hearing the 5-year old story a lot at work as well. People just straight up ignore the rated R
