Miss Information is annoyed by an emergencyThe library has a pay phone for the tiny minority of its customers who are cell-phone deprived. Even so, people ask to use the staff phone. After witnessing many phone calls made by kids who were too lazy to walk home, Miss Information now directs almost everyone to the pay phone. She makes exceptions for small children, genuine emergencies and bad weather. But if you’re not bleeding and you’re old enough to have money, you need to use the payphone.
The woman asking to use the phone is wearing sort of a trampy skirt, but she looks like she probably has some cash with her. However, the kind-hearted librarian working with Miss Information allows the woman to use the staff phone for her “emergency”. Maybe she’s calling someone to bring her a less slutty skirt. Miss Information eavesdrops on the conversation.
She is disappointed. “Hi. I’m at the library. What are you doing?” counts as an emergency phone call only if the person on the other end is Kim Jong Il or Lindsay Lohan.
The next time Miss Information encounters Trampy-Skirt-Wearing, Phone-Call-Making-Woman, she is dry humping a guy in a very public area of the library. So basically she used the Reference Desk phone to make a booty call. Nice. Maybe it was an emergency. Both participants did seem rather overwrought.
Miss Information, although she is mighty impressed by the stretchiness of the trampy skirt, thinks that adults should be able to refrain from such activities in public places.
