Last week, my pal Mike Long and I had dinner at a Thai place in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. Then we walked one long, steep block toso I could buy a few photo books of D.C. to send to my friends in .
The store was almost empty, possibly because of a powerful rain that was falling. I found several lovely books and brought them to the sales counter, where two young salesclerks, a man and a woman, were lounging. I told them I wanted to buy the books and have them mailed or otherwise sent to three addresses in California.

“You don’t ever send books?” I asked.
“Hey, we’re students at,” the young woman said. “We don’t know how to do much.”
“But surely other customers have wanted to send books,” I said.
“Can you call over a manager?” I asked.
“Yes,” the young woman said eagerly. “Yes.” Soon, a pretty young woman with short hair appeared.
To make a long story short, she was indeed the manager, but she didn’t know how to send the books, either. In fact, even after I’d carefully spelled out all of the addresses, they couldn’t figure out how to send anything.
