Does not compute.

A guy buying some used books.

"That will be $4.50," I say.

"Here's $5.00," he answers. "You don't charge enough..."

"What did you say?"

"You don't charge enough..."

"I'm sorry, I don't think I quite caught that."

"You don't charge enough...."

"I think I heard you say something, but my brain couldn't process it."

"You don't....charge enough."

"I don't...................what was that again?"

"You don't charge enough."

I look over my shoulder. "You talking to me?"

"You don't charge enough."

Anyway, that's the way I think the conversation went.

The guy spent an extra 50 cents, for which he brightened your day and perhaps somewhat restored your faith in humanity. I call that money well spent.
