Enter elderly patron looking for our bookdrop to avoid the giant line (thinking about which just makes me even more happy to be on vacation!). “Lisa” our intrepid YA librarian sought to describe the bookdrop that the woman had passed without realizing upon entering the library.
Lisa: “It’s a big metal big thing.”
Miss Print: *audibly laughs*
Lisa: “What would you have said?”
Miss Print: “I don’t know. It’s a big white metal thing?”
Eventually another patron pointed the confused patron in the right direction and all was as it should be. Still amusing though.
