Overheard in a second-hand book shop:
Customer: Excuse me, have you got Orwell's 1984?
Shop assistant: Er, is it fiction?
SA: Is that A-U-W-E-L-L?
C: No, it's O-R-W-E-L-L.
SA: Oh. Sorry. I'm new here. I'll have a look for you.
New where? Planet Earth? Not wanting to be unduly snobby, but...seriously?
