Bound To The Past

, , , , , | Right | January 25, 2021

An elderly woman calls to inquire about an old dictionary.

Caller: “Its binding is falling apart and I wonder if you know anyone who deals with binding and rebinding.”

Me: “Unfortunately, there isn’t anyone left in the city that deals with that sort of stuff.”

Caller: “What can you do with the book?”

Me: “If the binding is coming off, there isn’t much we could do. Also, we don’t really take dictionaries any more as the Internet has made them obsolete.”

Caller: “Oh, well, I think that the Internet is just a fad.”
