So I'm at Fryes, marveling at the fact that they actually have at least one rack of anime in bluray (and it's actually separated into its own section), holding a couple of things, when this female sales associate walks up.
SA: Finding everything alright today?
Me: Yeah, just browsing.
SA: ... *stands there*
Me: ... *continues browsing, wondering if I look like a shoplifter or something*
SA: ... Have you heard about The Secret?
Me: ... . o O ( Oh Christ Jesus they've evolved into evangelicals. What's a less-than-polite-but-not-absolutely-rude way to tell her to fuck off? ) Oh, that cult type thing from Oprah?
SA: Oh, uh... y-yeah. That's... you watch Oprah?
Me: No. *sidles further down the rack, keeping my eyes on the anime*
SA: *follows* Oh? So where'd you hear about it then?
Me: ... Cult-watch website. *deciding to see just how much of a hint she'll refuse to take* Actually, no, I read on a blog somewhere that it talked about how The Secret says when bad things happen to you, it's your own fault for thinking negatively.
SA: Well yes that's-
Me: So that when Oprah was abused and molested as a child, it was apparently her own fault.
SA: ... You know I was just thinking about that the other day! But I think the real message is to think positively and-!
Me: . o O ( O-kay, enough's enough. ) Could I see your manager, please?
SA: Oh. ... Sure.
Guess she wasn't thinking positively enough, huh?
