I get home and my mother tells me that a friend of hers has shredded her Barnes and Noble membership card. Why? Allegedly, the B&N in Coral Gables, Florida has been hit with a bit of a controversy and this is the first I’ve heard about it.
Amidst the various Obama books that were on display, there was a book about ‘monkeys’ prominently sitting in the middle. B&N says it was a prank by a customer. At my neighborhood B&N, customers are not allowed access to the display case but B&N in Florida says this was a prank pulled by a “customer.” There were also rumors going around online indicating that the photo was fake but it has since been authenticated by this B&N statement. If you’re at a loss for words, well, so am I. The incident supposedly took place 2 weeks ago.
