Real library transactions
A true story:
A longtime patron approaches me at the front desk of the library. He ruefully tells me he has $4.50 in fines to pay and hands me a twenty. "We will wax fat off of your suffering." I say as I collect his bill. I give him change and a receipt of the transaction. "Thank you." I say. "Thank you." He says. "I guess." Well. How rude!
