Miss Information is annoyed by the disgruntledThe patron announces that she prays for the library every night. That's just so touching...but wait, it turns out the woman is merely praying that bad things happen to the library staff. Miss Information is no expert, but that doesn't seem very spiritual to her. And besides, they already have to work here, so some supernatural being is obviously taking revenge for something already and the woman needn't bother.
It turns out that the library had provoked the wrath of this woman and the gods themselves by unreasonably requesting that she return her books in a timely fashion. It had all started several months ago when the patron insisted that she had brought those books back, but they had somehow not been discharged from her record and were not to be found anywhere in the library. Then a miracle occurred. Several of the books were dropped off in the library book drop, by an "angel" the customer insisted.
Miss Information is going right home to dust off her copy of Wings of Desire. She just loves the part where the angel flies around Berlin returning overdue library books.
Alas, this woman's angel had neglected to pay the outstanding fines owing on the books. No pockets, Miss Information assumes and a backpack would get in the way of the wings. A clutch bag seems a good alternative, but what if you were suddenly called upon to dance on the head of a pin or play the harp?
At any rate the library wanted its money and the woman opted for divine intervention.
Well, at least all she did was pray for the library's misfortune, another overachieving patron took matters into his (or her) own hands, so to speak by trashing one of the library offices and using it as a toilet. Nice. Miss Information agrees that the public washrooms are indeed terrifying, but she would suggest a strongly worded letter of complaint.
If that doesn't work out, there's always the power of prayer.
