Here's Your Sign

Nitwit of the day/week/month/year. Since the year is only 4 weeks old, this does not bode well for the next 11 months.

Telephone: *RING*

Me: Library. May I help you?

Caller: What time do you close today?

Me: On Friday's we close at 3.

Caller: 3 in the evening?

Me: *Dumbstruck silence*

Maybe he thought you might be competing for the after-hours crowd just coming out of the bars realizing they really should do some studying.

Or she. (Since you didn't say, I was inconsiderate to jump to the conclusion the caller was male.)

*snort* Yeah. I haven't gotten any super-duper dumb questions at the Circ desk just yet, but wait! :) I'm sure they'll come.

Jean, your comment reminded me of an incident from years in the past. My wife and I were visiting Savannah. As we strolled down River Street in the afternoon, a somewhat disheveled, no-longer-quite-so-young woman wearing a feathered headdress (don't ask, I don't know) burst out of a bar, almost running into us. She shielded her eyes from the sun and exclaimed "It's still light outside!", then lurched back in the general direction of the bar from which she had come. Maybe my caller was in the same state of mind.

Joy, just wait and keep your signs handy. They're on the way.

Yeah, I like Jean's idea. You should totally have a party in the library, dude!

But maybe they're all vampires, the caller and that woman - have you not considered that???

I did consider that, Melly, but then I applied Occam's Razor to the problem and decided they are both just idiots. :)
