Some people just won't be told

Gordon, one of the library assistants upstairs in lending, is in a bate.

"I noticed that one of the books in the book sale was a signed copy from one of the author events a few years ago. I told them: 'this is a signed copy and there are people who collect this author. You want to make sure that it's not defaced before going into the booksale so that it's a more attractive proposition.'

"And do you know what? They stamped 'WITHDRAWN FROM STOCK' right over the fucking signature. That's what. How can they do that?!?"

I have no answer save the blindingly obvious.

Perhaps those who stamp, can't also read?
