Miss Information is tired of having this conversationIt was a beautiful summer day. The library was quiet and peaceful. All the computers were vacant. Miss Information was getting caught up on her looseleaf filing. Then she woke up, got dressed and went to work where it was a beautiful summer day. The earsplitting shrieks of children filled the air. People are stacked up on the computers like cans of soup. Miss Information had a headache.
A thousand times a day she gets to have this conversation:
Patron: I'd like to use the Internet.
Miss I: All the terminals are in use right now. You can book an appointment if you want.
Patron: I just need it for a couple of minutes.
Miss I: Oh, well, that's totally different, then. The computers that you can use for "just a couple of minutes" are in a secret part of the library that the children don't know about...no, wait, that's wrong. There are still no terminals available.
Miss Information wishes everyone would just go home now.
