"Excuse me?  Where is the Self-Help section?"

Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?

    Naw. Way I think of it … anybody truly helpless enough not to find the self-help section (doesn’t it take up like half the store now?) truly IS in need of some self-help books.

    Leaving the rest of us to make snarky Chicken Soup for the Whatsis references while we while we read about, um, (looking at Matt’s book selection) military history, Roman history, Romans, Roman military history, and fictional alternate histories about the military or Romans or Romans in the military.

    Yeah, that’s about it.

    Do you ever walk down a book isle, take a sniff and realize that some other shopper has left you a fragrant present? This appened to me last week. Next thing I know, an employee comes walking down the isle to put up some books, gags and looks at me like I was the cause for her dry heaves. I was a living embodiment of “wrong place at the wrong time”!

    I do have a friend in college who would use this technique at Blockbuster to clear out the crowd so he was able to make his movie selection. If he was a Super Hero, that definatley would have been his Super Power!
