This happens far too often in a comic shop. Esspecially on New Comic Wednesdays. Some dude who has poor social skills or is just plain inconsiderate stands in front of the new comics rack without moving for a good ten minutes. Even if you exaggerate your movements to reach around this guy and say “excuse me,” there is no response.

My best friend has mentioned many times to me that, “We should start a comic shop.” My reply is always the same. No. It’d be cool if our patrons were all cool geeks like us, but too often the socially awkward riff-raff will ruin it for everyone.

If only there were a way that we could teach them.
