Girl: I’m looking for a name of book that has the word “eliminate” in it.
Store guy: Okay. Let me see. Hmm…It doesn’t look like anything came up in the search.
Girl: I know that’s the word! I know it is. I really need this book!
Store guy: Okay. I’ll try and search again.
Girl: It’s “eliminate” with an I, not an E.
Store guy: Oh, you mean illuminate?

–Barnes & Noble, 82nd & Broadway
