A, B, C, D, E, F, Geeeeeeeeeee......
Why can't they stick to this tried and trusted format for putting things on the shelves in my favourite place in City Centre?
Yes, indeed! A multicultural mish-mash of employees from Oman, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and The Philippines and they still can't keep the place ship-shape.
One can imagine the Life Of Brian style scene when one of them takes a massive evolutionary leap and says:
"I've just had an amaaaaaaaazing moment of clarity! Those black and white signs above the shelves, yeah? Yeah? You know the ones? They're there to help us!"
Lots of quizical looks and yawning from the staff of the "Information" section and then a sudden pause in the texting and nail-picking....
"We have to put each book in it's proper place! And, and, and.......then use something I read about called the "alphabet" to further categorize each author!"
"BET! Alphabet! It's like a list of the order in which the letters of the English language come in!"
It is driving me mad, and it is getting worse!
Last week, I found a book about hedge funds in.....yep, you've guessed it.....the Gardening section.
