If You Refgrunt and You Know It, Clap Your Hands!


Guy who always calls for phone numbers wants numbers for Macy’s, JC Penney, and Sears.  “This is the last time, I promise!  I bought a phone book at Walmart!”

“The movie where Andy Griffith is in a nursing home and gets all the ladies” (Play the Game)

I need a dictionary, English to English.  One that’s not too heavy.

Can you give me the number for the Chamber of Commerce?

Do you have English tutoring?

Did my Rey Mysterio book come in yet?

Can I borrow the white-out?

Annie Hall on DVD—I’ll come pick it up today.

Books on native plants—“I have a bunch of plants in my yard and I want to know what they are”

Driver’s test study guide in Spanish

We want to donate some books to the Friends of the Library bookstore, but we want to make sure you won’t throw them in the trash.

May I prolong the checkout on these books, despite having checked them out from another branch?  And would you write for me the shelf number of the Merck Index?  I am sorry to bombard you with questions.

We’re looking for books on Alcatraz and on East State Prison.  We’re going to do some exploring.

I’ve lost my library card and ID, but I need to use the Internet.

Is this a book I can check out? 

Can you show me how to request a book?

Prison guys come back—now they want books on meditation.

Guy with huge tome of all Shakespeare's works: "Do you have the movie version of this?"

Me:"... all of them? In one movie?"

Guy: "Yes!"

Me: "... No. Definitely no."

Well, there is this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0301126/
But I don't know if he'd want an abridged version!

These are hilarious! I love your guys' blog!
One of the best questions I've been asked is from a college student who just walked in the front door (main level) and asks, "Is the second floor the one directly above this floor?"
Yikes. I work on a college campus.
