People, man, they're just unbelievable! I'm out working at the front desk of the library and this guy comes up and wants to get a library card. Yeah. Just like that he wants a library card, like it's nothing.
"I need a picture ID with your current address." I say. And he, like, takes out his wallet and gives me his drivers license. Okay. So I start entering it all in to the computer to give him a card and everything. I type in the address and all that. I ask him for a four digit pin number. I say it very carefully, emphasizing the word "digit" to forestall him from saying any letters.
He thinks for a second and then says "5421"
Right, so that's odd enough, but it's fine. I finish putting in all the information. I hand him the card with a pen. I say "You need to sign the card." So, get this, the guy, who wanted the library card, I guess to check out books or whatever, he signs the card. It's a nice big signature. Great. So, I decide, what the hell, and I give him a brochure.
"This has all our policies and hours." I say as I hand it to him. "You can check out whatever you want." I say in a cheery, concluding sort of way.
And the guy says, get this, he says "Thanks." Yeah, just like that, he says "Thanks." and then he walks away.
The whole thing was just, I don't know, bizarre. I guess there's a lot of characters out there. But sometimes it gets pretty strange.
