Insane Babbling

I went to this one CD store a couple of days ago looking for the "Nightmare Before Christmas" soundtrack cause the little one likes the songs a lot. Was served by this kid who's probably 20+ years old - like really early 20s or very late teens.

I asked him:" Do you have the soundtrack to "Nightmare Before Christmas"?"

He stares at me blankly.

I repeat my question.

Again the blank stare.

Then he starts thumbing through the section under "N" and then asks me:

"Which one?"

I say "Nightmare Before Christmas"

He repeats: "Which one? There are a few right? Which number are you looking for?"

"What? There was only one! The Nightmare Before Christmas! By Tim Burton? You know? Who brought us Corpse Bride this year?"

He stares at me and then asks:

"Yeah, on Elm Street right?"

How do you respond to something like that? Am I really that old? That far removed? Has Society moved on without me? Or do sales staff generally not be required to have product knowledge anymore?
