Miss Information argues with a stand up guy

This is yet another irritating patron encounter extracted from the mixed up files of Miss Information.

Today Miss Information had an argument with a man who wanted to sit at one of the stand up express terminals. She told him that sitting defeated the purpose of having a “stand up terminal”. He said that didn’t apply to him because he had a backache.

Miss Information then suggested that if he wanted/needed to sit down, he should use one of the many readily available “sit down terminals”. He didn’t want to.

At times like this Miss Information wishes she had become a mushroom farmer.
