A husband & wife in their 80s came to the desk asking for library cards. They successfully filled out the web application, then they came to the desk to get the cards. As I was helping them with this, the man said- I'm so sorry to bother you, can we buy you a drink from the coffee cart? I said no, this is my job. I am here to help you. I gave them the cards, then 10 minutes later they came back and asked me about the check out period for a DVD. I told them-- a week, and the man said-- what if I buy you a drink @ the cart, would the lending period be any different?
