    | Honolulu, HI, USA | Uncategorized

    Patron: “Hi, can you help me find this book?” *hands me piece of paper with call number* “I went to look for it, but I couldn’t find it.”

    Me: “Sure, let’s go take a look.”

    (I take him to the stacks and start to walk down the correct row.)

    Patron: “Yeah, this is where I was looking.”

    (I pull down the book with that call number. This particular copy is brown.)

    Me: “There you go!”

    Patron: *disappointed* “Oh, I was looking for a black cover!”
