A very representative refgrunt

I think the magazines are there? No, the other corner, ma’am.

Do I need to reserve a computer?

Phone request: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

My computer went off and I can’t switch to a different one because it thinks I’m still logged on. (I log him off from the control station and then go to investigate—the monitor had become unplugged somehow)

Can I help you find something? Yes, the ladies’ room.

My uncle wants to know if you have phonebooks.

Tour of OverDrive, which does our ebooks.

How do I print?

Excuse me, ma’am, I don’t know how to print on this.

Phone: Do you have Valueline? What about Morningstar?

More printing help.

Long thing about reserving the program room for a college fair waaaay ahead of time.

Which of the books on this display would you choose if you were going to read one? (further questioning reveals a suspense/thriller/horror one would be best for her) Select Devil in the White City. Favorite question of the day.

Lady at the self-checkout machine: Excuse me, what do you do if it rejects one? She keeps saying over and over, it looks like the SKU is wrong, it must be the wrong SKU…a year ago (before I worked retail) I won’t have known what a SKU was and would have been quite confused. I probably would have heard it as “skew,” for starters.

I want to put a book on hold (Cinder).

Question about the tax help we host.

Two YA holds—Finale and Boundless.

Can I call my mom on your phone? Long distance?

Five minutes before closing: The eAudiobooks help said I had to come to the library for the first time to set up my account and I am leaving at 8 a.m. tomorrow for a road trip!

  1. Any entry that starts "five minutes before closing" is going to be icky.
