Miss Information is annoyed by obsession

The woman at the desk seemed a little off. Nothing Miss Information could put her finger on. Well, there was the gigantic fake gold chain but bad taste doesn't always mean crazy. Unless it does.

The woman interrupted Miss Information who was with another patron but agreed to wait her turn. When her turn came along, Ms Flava Flav she needed the Jimmy Fallon movie Taxi. It's a sad thing but it is a movie the library does not own How could they have missed ordering this classic? Chain gang woman is sad. But Jimmy Fallon....of course you have it.

Just in case, Miss Information did a search on Jimmy Fallon movies. The library does indeed own two--Fever Pitch and something else. "Not Taxi?" the woman asks. Nope. Not Taxi. Did she want one of those other movies? No, the woman wanted Taxi. "Jimmy Fallon, the talk show host, you know?" Miss Information does know. "He's so funny!" the woman declared. Well, if you say so. Miss Information doesn't think he's particularly amusing but doesn't think it matters since he seems to find himself endlessly hilarious.

The woman is truly a rabid fan. Miss Information knows this because the woman returns no less than three times to have the exact conversation. At least wait for a shift change and ask somebody different, lady!

No matter how many times they ask or rephrase the question the answer is still the same. I guess in their universe the laws of physics are fluid. Either that or they expect me to say "Oh! Just forgot I can pull it out of an orifice! Here you go!"
