Thanks for sharing

You look like you are about 18.  See, in my day we didn't have computers to do everything.  In my day (his record says he was born in the 1950s) I didn't grow up with a computer.  

(abruptly changes subject)

I did it all when I was your age on horseback!

What did you do with the DVD sir?

I took if off the hold shelf, decided I didn't want it, so I shelved it for you like I always do.

Oh, you need to either check it out and return it or give it to a staff member so that we can take it off your account.


You're kidding, I shelve them all the time!

Well, I guess we caught up with you this time.

Books & Bonbons

Two middle aged women were at the reference desk.  The first woman requested a Charlaine Harris book.  The second woman chimed in to say that she should request the whole series.  The first woman said--  I like reading them in order.  Ordering all of them at once is like having too many bonbons at the same time.

My question has nothing to do with books, but when you look out the window can you tell me if it is foggy?

Yes, it is.

Oh, I appreciate that.  Thanks!

What Librarians Do

Dad: Look, she's a librarian!  Do you know what librarians do?
Kid: No, what?
Dad: They help you check out books, and if you make noise, they put you in jail. See, look at her eyes!

(Kid looks at me, I give my best glare)

Dad: Thanks for playing along.
