The café owner was chatting to a regular customer who was on a break from promoting his book. The regular asked if he could put a poster in the window. ‘Sure! No problem,’ the owner replied.
The regular produced one of his posters. The book was about Nazism and Hitler’s face loomed large from the A4 sheet. The owner went pale.
‘Look at the condensation in that window,’ he said. ‘We have real trouble with that. Could you could get it laminated and bring it back?’
I looked at the other posters in the window. None of them were laminated.
