It's Spelled C-O-P-Y-R-I-G-H-T

This actually happened a couple of months ago, during the height of the textbook rush. I had spotted a customer who seemed in need of some assistance, so I sauntered up to him, and the resulting dialogue went like this:

Me: Can I help you with anything?

Him: Yeah, is this the textbook for [course number]?

Me: It is.

Him: Ok, how much is it?

Me: It's $98.50.

[Long pause]

Him: Ok. Um, so is there a photocopier in the bookstore that I can use for awhile?

The funny thing was, he was dead serious. He could not understand why I would not let him simply photocopy his textbook rather than buy it.
