Miss Information is bringing the crazy backMiss Information is down to her last two essays. It is killing her. Despite her realization that she could probably hand in a 15 page paper written in rhyming couplets and still manage to get a passing grade, she is agonizing over this. She suspects that because she is a drooling, mumbling mess, she has attracted a new crazy friend.
It was her first customer of the day. The woman's beautiful blue eyes briefly disguised that the she was a marching band full of crazy. She started out by asking Miss Information to help her find the contact information for the local police. She had a complaint. Also, she would like to complain about the national policing agency as well. They weren't taking her seriously. And the phone company. They were monitoring her calls. Oh, and also she needed information about the landlord and tenant act. She doesn't care for her landlord's attitude. He's spying on her.
Miss Information did what she always does in these situations. She pretended the woman was rational and tried to deal with the questions one at a time. As she was getting the requested information the woman kept talking. Who would she complain to about her doctor? The hospital had forced her, under hypnosis, to take all sorts of tests, some of them gynaecological. As if that wasn't bad enough, the bastards were selling this highly personal information to radio and television stations who were broadcasting the woman's tests nationally. The woman wondered who she would complain to about this. Miss Information has no idea but she was pleased to learn why television's been so stupid lately.
Miss Information tries to help her as much as she can. Obviously she's out of her depth here. However, she knows that some libraries offer legal aid services and she suggests the woman talk to an attorney about these problems, possibly get some help, start commitment hearings, etc. The woman looks at Miss Information as though she were the crazy one. She doesn't need a lawyer. Why would she need a lawyer? That's insane.
Oh. Thanks for clearing that up. The woman left with a ream of addresses and a variety of complaint forms from a number of agencies. Before she left, she did mention that Miss Information had been very helpful and she would not be filing any sort of complaint against her.
