They’ve Mentally Checked Out

, , , | Right | April 20, 2018

(I work in a library.)

Patron: “Can I have [Book]?”

Me: “It’s checked out, sorry.”

Patron: “So, can I have it?”

Me: “No, it’s checked out.”

Patron: *confused stare*

Me: “Someone else got it, I’m afraid.”

Patron: “All of them?”

Me: “We only have one copy of this book.”

Patron: “So I’d like this copy, please.”

Me: “It’s checked out. Another person has it at the moment.”

Patron: “So, I can’t have it?”
