Girl looking for Al Capone book

This girl about 20 was looking for an Al Capone book. She said the title = Al Capone, but didn't know the author. I brought up a list of books that start with Al Capone, and she couldn't recognize the subtitles.

She said (about her boyfriend) Send his ass over here, let him do it, what the hell.

He came over and we found out he had already requested the book, and that the title was Capone, not Al Capone.

I would've thought that the helpful library staff would've figured that one out. I mean, I'm pretty sure it's a book about Al Capone, right?

Surely an experienced librarian would know that the general public - in general - ain't none too swift! (Yes, even those who go to the liberry) You have to work aound that a little.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not ragging on librarians. Most librarians are quite helpful, intuitive and knowledgeable. (And some are quite attractive!)

I was the one who originally requested it for him!

Oh my! That just makes it worse!

(You mean you don't memorize every book title requested of you? LOL!)

I enjoy your little library tales, Marian. :)

No no, I was the first requester and Amy was the second one.

Glad you like the blog.
