Step 1: Stop Stealing

Today I found a ripped out barcode in the stacks. I scanned it in and found that the stolen book was called How to Clear Your Adult and Juvenile Criminal Records.

Considerate

A lady comes up to the desk holding a laptop.

Lady: Can I get an internet reservation?

Me: Sure, but we have wireless internet if you want.

Lady:
I was going to use it, but I'm afraid my computer will be too loud when I start it up.

Me: Oh, that's so nice of you! But just go ahead and start it up right here at the desk--it's noisy here anyway.

And this is before the loud argument with throwing things that happened later on.


Lady: Okay, thanks!

She starts it up and it's completely silent.


Lady: Oh. I really thought I turned the volume up last night!

Yep.

"Hey, why is it so dark in here? What did you guys do? Oh wait, I have my sunglasses on."

What do you think?

"If this computer says 'reserved', does that mean it's reserved?"
