! ! ! this just in ! ! !

Young Patron: I'm looking for the second Harry Potter book, the lady downstairs said you had one up here.

M: Well, I just looked over there for one of the other books for someone else and it was the last one. Let me check the catalog.


M: Yes, Chamber of Secrets just checked in so go down to the front desk and give them the name of the book and that it was recently returned.

YP: *squirming and making noncommital noises and the corresponding facial expression* Well, I really wanted it today. We're going to the beach.

M: um..well, downstairs is IN the building so you'd have it today. Just go to the desk and tell them it was recently returned.

YP: Well, I'll just find something else.

M: Let me just go get that for you.

that is all.

that doesn't bode well for future job interviews..'well, maybe I'll just work at McDonald's..." If you want it, you have to suck up the courage to take that first step. :-)
