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!
