Need Swim Trunks? Ask A Librarian...

I've been so busy trying to get this years summer reading club together I forgot to write about this over the weekend...

On Friday mid setup a man walks up to myself and "Mini Page" and proceeds to ask if I could help him with something. I said sure even though I was obviously busy and asked him what he needed help with. He begins to tell me that he is new in town and that he is having trouble finding a bathing suit that fits properly. He goes on to tell me what size he wears and how one size is too big, while another is too small even though it should fit. He explained to me about his trunks falling off in the water, etc. Without laughing at the guy because the whole thing was so odd, I tell him various places on Long Island where he could find himself a bathing suit. He says thank you and walks away.

"Mini Page" just stood there with her jaw open after he left and couldn't find the words to describe how odd the interaction was.

Gotta love weirdos in the library...

  2. Just found your blog and love it! I love getting a laugh from someone else's absurd library life. I think one of my stupid question highlights (which was more funny than maddening, which they usually are) was being asked "when was the sweet potato invented?" Um. Is this a trick question? Haven't they always, like, existed?

      Someone really asked you that?! I LOVE IT! I have a love/hate relationship with how stupid people are.
