Customer: I need to get that book about cookies. It's something about cookies.
Clerk: Cookies. Okay. (types into the computer) umm... there are quite a few books about cookies here.
Customer: Well it was on TV the other day. My wife saw it on TV.
Clerk: Um. Okay. There are really a lot of books about cookies. Can you tell me anything else about it?
Customer: It's something about making money and cookies. I don't know. She was going on about it at dinner but I wasn't really listening to her.
At this point, I realize which book they are looking for and turn to the clerk.
Me: I think the book you want is called The Smart Cookie’s Guide to Investing
Him: YEAH. THAT'S IT.
Clerk: Thank you.
Me: Your wife is a lucky woman.
