Justifiable homicide?

Okay, here's the scenario:

I was at the bookshop yesterday, and since everyone in the known universe 
has the Merlin Conspiracy, I thought I would ask the woman in the 
children's section if she had any updated information on the release date. 
She was very snippy about this: obviously I didn't understand about the 
publishing business, and just because everyone else has a copy doesn't mean 
I can get it in Canada. Blah, blah, blah, June. So I went home, and not an 
hour later, she calls and says "Your book is in". "What book?" I ask, 
because despite her incompetence and bad attitude, I have ordered several. 
"The Merlin Conspiracy" she responds. So I made some comment like, "You 
could not have mentioned this an hour ago when I was asking you about it 
and you said 'June'?" And she was all, like, surprised that I thought I had 
any reason to be at all annoyed.

May I kill her?
