    That's the point. It was a really callous and ignorant thing to say.

    I heard a guy ask the clerk if he had any "Boze Scaggs" (that's how he pronounced it). He then added, "I hope you do, Boze Scaggs is my favorite singer."

    That they were selling a legitimate signed copy of "The Jackson 5's Christmas Album." Two problems:

    1) The signatures on the cover are printed, and are just part of the artwork,
    2) The guy claimed the album he was trying to unload was signed by Andrew Jackson.

    Yes.

    Andrew Jackson.

    Helpful tip: Don't ever, EVER, listen to Baba Booey talk about LP's.

    Because many kittens will be kicked. XD

    By the owner talking to a customer about the mfsl MMT Beatles album:

    "Thats the audiophile Magical Mystery Tour. Best sounding version you will hear"

    I never said a word. Just smiled to myself.

    Overpriced sealed Led Zeppelin stuff, no.
    I do have a sealed Dread Zeppelin "Un-Led-Ed" CD with the first cover, a sealed 12", and some Birdcage 45's in the Dynagroove Records inventory ;)

    For all the stupid things I heard in a record store I could write a book.

    [A sample] Jimi and Nona Hendrix are brother and sister.

    Oh, I've known a couple people in my lifetime who were that musically dense.

    I've met TWO people now who had no clue who Pink Floyd were.

    I'm looking for a song.
    I don't know the name of it.
    I don't know who sings it.
    I can't really remember how it goes but it says something about love.

    My hatred for cats might be clouding my judgment, but I feel the same.

    Heard whilst watching the vinyl spin in front of them: 'has this been released yet?'
