The below is a true story by the awesome Andy Day - I personally believe the lesson is buy my book or you're going to hell
So!! In the spirit of EMM i have my own story to share with you which happened just today.
I was in Penrith earlier this morning and had just walked out of
Panther Cycles having purchased some new Shimano cycling shoes and new
On my way back to the car I walked past a shop
front, looking inside I saw shelves full of books, immediately thinking
to myself "Great, a book store, I'll see
if they have any of Dave's books." Not that I would buy them from
anyone other than you, but as an avid fan, curious as to where one could
purchase your books from.
Walking into the store I made a bee
line for the front counter, where I was met by an elderly gent of
approximately 65. When I reached the counter we exchanged the usual
greetings and he asked, how can I help?
"Do you have any books by the author, David Tieck?" I asked.
The gentleman behind the counter typed into his computer and after a
moment replied, "I'm afraid I can't find anything, do you know any of
"Of course!" I replied. "There is, The Embarrassing Memory Murderer, and Losing My Virginity 52 Times." I say.
Staring at me for a few moments, the man then replies, "I beg your pardon!"
Confused, I say again, "The Embarrassing Memory Murderer and Losing My Virgi..." I begin to reply.
"Excuse me sir, but could you please keep your voice down!" He replies, cutting me off mid sentence.
I am shocked and taken aback at his reaction. "I'm sorry?" I say inquisitively.
He replies in a hushed yet serious tone, "I'm sorry sir, but this is a
respected Christian book shop and we do not sell the sort of filth that
you are asking for!", "now I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to
As I walk towards the door, I look to the shelves
either side of me and see a display of new leather bound bibles and such
titles as "let's chat about God".
I walk silently out of the
shop, contemplating what had just happened. As soon as I got outside my
only reaction was to simply burst out laughing at the fact that I had
just unknowingly walked into a Strictly Christian book shop asking for
your books and resulting in my being kicked out.
I'm afraid that you don't have a strong Christian follow DT! Best to rule them out from your targeted demographic audience. =D
You can't buy it in Christian book stores but you can buy it here :) - HERE HERE HERE or even ----> HERE
