Role Model

I'm eavesdropping on my colleague "The Liberry", who is helping a kid with his paper on Puff Daddy.

Kid: I don't need a whole book about him [which is good since the only one we have in the system is all the way across the county and the paper is of course due tomorrow] --it just needs to have his name in it somewhere.

The Liberry: Okay, well, try the books in this section--one of them will probably have it.

Kid: Okay, but how will I know if his name is in there? Do I have to read the whole book?

Me: You could try looking in the index...

Kid (to me): You're smart!

Me:
I know, that's why they pay me the big bucks.
