Actual Telephone Conversations Heard in Actual Libraries #10

*RING*

ME: Tri-Metro County Library?

MALE CALLER: Hi, yes, I was calling to ask about your times?

ME: (Thinking the guy wanted to know something about our periodicals) Our `Times'?

MALE CALLER: Yes. Your times. (Pause) Like, what time do you close?

ME: Ohhhhhhh. You mean "our hours." Sure. We're open from 9-7.

MALE CALLER: Um, thanks.
