A co-worker I was at the front desk with misinterpreted some small event and wanted to know if library cards can be restricted from checking out video games.
"No." I said. But I didn't feel it was the full detailed answer I like to give, so I added "But a parent can fill out a form to put restrictions on their child's card. So, technically, yes." But now I was on a roll so I added "But I have only ever seen bad, crazy parents put any restrictions on their child's card."
She said "You're very judgmental."
And then she took an excruciatingly long time to register two people for library cards, over complicating the whole thing and telling them an endless litany of pointless information, while I had to handle all the work of the front desk for the next 45 minutes.
