I am a Librarian in a busy municipal library. Generally, I do not get many crazy interactions in the Children’s Dept. but this one happened.
Me: Children’s Department, [name], speaking.
Male Caller: HI, is this [name]?
Me: Yes, what can I do for you?
Caller: I want your phone number.
Me: Excuse me?
Caller: I want your phone number.
Me: I’m sorry, I can’t give you that information.
Caller: Why?
Me: That is personal information. You are welcome to talk to me at the Library. Is there a library-related question I can help you with?
Caller: No, I can’t come in, I am at the grocery store buying meat.
