In Purse-uit Of Common Sense

| Working | August 5, 2012

(While visiting the local library, I leave my purse behind accidentally. I ask a friend who lives close by to pick it up for me, and they tell her they have given it back already. So I phone, and this is the conversation that ensues.)

Worker: “Hello, [library]. How can I help you?”

Me: “Hello. I’m calling because I recently left a purse there, and I was just wondering if it was still there.” *describes purse*

Worker: “Oh. Well, this is just the fiction desk. I’ll have to go check with at the main desk.”

Me: “Okay.”

(The woman goes to the main desk, and returns 10 minutes later.)

Worker: “Well, this is just embarrassing. They said a girl came in a said it was her mother’s purse… her daughter’s purse or something. They just gave it to her.”

Me: “Without checking for ID?”

Worker: “No, they just gave it to her. Didn’t even ask her name or anything!”
