Spill and split

Diane Longmore, Constantia

As I approached the Exclusive Books in the Constantia Village just after 9am on Monday December 3, a man in a rush to exit the store caught my attention.

Minutes later staff discovered that he had just spilt his takeaway drink on approximately R4 000 worth of books, rendering them unsaleable and leaving staff to clean up his mess. Of course he was nowhere to be seen.

One assumes he can read, so perhaps he will read this letter and have a pang of guilt or remorse for this dishonest and disappointing behaviour.
