Customer: "My daughter's been having nightmares about 'The Gruffalo'... what are you going to do about it?"

Bookseller: "When did you buy this book from us?"

Customer: "We didn't buy it from you... I've Googled all the bookstores I can find, and I'm calling you up to request that you stop stocking the book immediately... so, are you going to get rid of the copies you do have?"

Bookseller: "No, I'm afraid we won't be doing that... this appears to be an isolated incident, and the book is loved by many of our customers."

Customer: "I see. Well, I'll be splitting my daughter's counseling bill and sharing it among heartless booksellers like you!"

Customer: "I think you'll find that's beside the point."
