You want me to spell WHAT?!

So... two days ago I got a telephone call from a patron wanting to know how to spell "derogatory".

Then, i'm relating the tale to Marian this afternoon and she remarks that the same person (male with a heavy accent) asked her to spell "reckless" this afternoon.

Well, this evening he called for the third time for the spelling of "disciple".

I'm really curious to know what motivates these requests, but will leave it to our fair readers to come to their own (tawdry/sinister/evangelical) conclusions!

He's probably playing Scrabble.

I don't know..."derogatory" is a pretty long word for Scrabble.
