Today in Reference

Customer: Hi, I saw this really good movie called (fill in the blank), and I was wondering if I can check it out here.

Me:  I just checked the catalog; it says we don't have it.

Customer:  Oh, cuz I watched it in Traffic School.  It was really good.


Phone caller:   I don't even know the title or how to spell feng shui, but do you have something on feng shui for cats?

Me:  Let me check my catalog...  no, I don't see anything on the topic.  However, I did find the title through Amazon.
