At my local bookstore:

Me: Hi, do you have any copies of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard?
Employee: Sorry, what?
[I repeat myself at least twice.]
Employee: How's that spelled, P-I-L-G-O-R...
[I spell it.]
Employee: We don't, sorry, at least not in the computer. But you can check in fiction.
Me: Oh, thanks, but I already did.
Employee: Oh. Well, it would be in fiction, so you can check there.

[I thank the guy and walk away to find someone less clueless.]

Me: Hi, is it possible for you guys to order a book you don't have? I'm looking for Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard.
Employee: [muttering to himself while typing] Pilgrim...how is that even spelled? ...wait, I had it right the first time.

Good varsities simply are; I'm honestly not sure there's any sort of rubric or trend.

"Soda" is the "Acadeca" of slang terms for carbonated beverages.

My teammates and I may or may not have bought and hoarded snacks in the last couple days of the trip.

Lol, glad to see you've discovered the immature side of the boards.

The circle of stupidity is complete.

Or as my Scholastic freshman protege would say, "Andrew, circles aren't real. You just think they're real."

My ten-year-old brother has taken interest in the concept of a year being seven dog years.
