This guy called and patronized me and I don’t appreciate it.
Me: Cedar Rapids Public Library, can I help you?
Patron: Wait, is this a person? Are you a person?
Me: Um, yes.. Can I help you?
Patron: I’m so used to getting recordings that I am surprised you are real.
Me: Okay.. how can I help you?
Patron: Do you have the movie Dr. Zhivago?
Me: Sure let me look… It looks like there are 3 versions do you know which one you’d like? Perhaps the year it was made or an actor who’s in it?
Patron: Do you know what Dr. Zhivago is?
Patron: Its like War & Peace but in a movie (actually its not) .. Have you read War & Peace?
Me: No I have not.
Patron: Do you really work at a library?
Patron: And you haven’t read War & Peace? How old are you?
This is the point in time where I would have hung up on him if I could have.
