Do you work here?

...No, this desk chair is just really comfortable.


..No, I'm just testing out my 'librarian' Halloween costume.


...No, I pried this badge from the cold, dead hands of a real librarian.


...Yes, but if I can't answer the question you're about to ask me, they'll fire me.


..."work" is a strong word.


...No, do you?

  2. do people ask this just as a sort of throat-clearing intro, I wonder?

    1. Yeah, they often do, I think. Which is why in reality I generally say, "Yes, how can I help you?" instead of anything on the list.
