I joke with the patrons.
A patron says "My library card doesn't work here. Can I get it registered with you?"
"Sure," I respond lightly, then suddenly remember. "Is your calender clear for the whole evening? This will take several hours."
"Yep, all clear." They say.
Entering the new patron record I look up from their driver's license. "Is this still your birthdate?"
They assure me that it is.
When I hand them their card they say "Yay, I can check out books."
"Take them all." I encourage. "We're not doing anything with them.
Exit our new patron.
And why wouldn't I like these people. They are good sports, one and all.
