And this speculated over reaction is more likely than the clerk noticing while restocking or just having it brought to their attention by a customer asking for their desired book how? Your reaction here seems as overblown as teacake's idea seems trivial.
I've worked in retail. I know how hard store clerks work to properly stock a store's inventory; it's often long and unpleasant work, and imagining someone deliberately messing that up strikes me as so basically disrespectful that it makes me angry. No one's saying it's the same thing as theft or what-have-you, but it's a very casual form of selfishness.
