The tall man who wears his pants about 10 inches above the waist came to the desk asking for thread. I said sorry, I don't have any thread. He said I can't believe my pants have a hole in them. They are nice pants. And they have a hole. I can't understand it.

Sorry, needle & thread = not a service we provide.

Urine Way Over Your Head, Part 3
Library | Edmonton, AB, Canada

(I am working at the library reference desk. A teen patron approaches.)

Me: “Hi! What can I help you with?”

Customer: *looking away and fiddling with his hair* “Um…do you smoke pot?”

Me: “Uh…no.”

Customer: “See…there’s, like, this test right? And I’m not gonna be able to pass it, so can I like…um…buy your pee?”

Me: “No. That’s not a service we provide here.”

Customer: *slouches off*
