SFX: (Phone dialing followed by ringing)
ME: Hi this is JUICE from the TRI-METRO county library calling for Laura Bethman?
ME: (Annunciating heavily) Lau-ra Beth-man.
LADY: I'm sorry, you must have the wrong number.
comparing the number from the interlibrary loan print-out with the
number I just dialed on the digital readout of our phone; it's exactly
the same) Um, can I just confirm the number I dialed. Is this 555-6543?
LADY: Well, that's our number, but there's no Laura Bethman here. This is the George residence.
ME: (Reconsulting the ILL printout.) Ah, hah. I see that I have mistaken the author of the book with the patron who requested it.
ME: So I'm actually calling for Elliot George. We have a book for him. By Laura Bethman.
LADY: Okay. I'll tell him.
