The School Book Store…Strikes Again! [by Jackie]
OK, I know there are tons of stories about school book stores and how they suck and all that, but I just got back from the Westfield State book store and I need to vent.
I had a book worth $160. I made sure I kept the stupid CD that came with it and kept the book in good condition. Last night I thought to myself, “With all the money I get back from this book, I am gonna get myself a nice outfit or at least a new shirt.” My roommates told me, ” Oh, you have the CD? That is at least $50 dollars right there!”
I marched right up to that register, book and CD in hand, smiling. The young man at the counter smiled too — only now do I realize that his smile was the kind of smile you see on a prison inmate’s face right before he rapes you in the ass.
I received $12. I asked the young employee, ” Are you sure? I kept the CD, do you see?!” He smiled, “Sorry, just $12.”
That is when I stabbed him with my student ID card. Just kidding! I knew it wasn’t the employee’s fault so I tried not to freak out. Instead I got my 12 bucks and walked away with the feeling of being completely fucked. And not in a good way.
