or, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Fear and Loathing at a Public Library Reference Desk


Reference Question of the Week – 1/24/10

   January 30th, 2010 Brian Herzog

Raggedy AndyPatron comes to the desk and asks,

Are you Andy?

I say no, and he looks a little puzzled, but then continues:

Oh. We can't make the projector work for our meeting, and when I asked for help and the desk upstairs, they said come down here and ask for someone. I forget what name they said, but they said look for the redhead, so I just figured your name must be Andy.

And yes, he was serious, but he did apologize when I said my name is Brian.
