Actual Conversations I SWEAR TO GOD Happened in Actual Libraries #100

SETTING: My "liberry" as our semi-illiterate patron Mr. Little Stupid approaches the circ desk, paper and pencil in hand.

MR. LITTLE STUPID— How do you spell Mickey Mouse?

ME— (Barely able to contain my mirth due to the singing voice of Annette Funicello ringing in my head) Um... that's M-I-C... K-E-Y... okay, and then below that, M-O-U-S-E.


ME— No problem.

Not THAT Mickey Mouse. You know, his friend with the white feathers! The other Mickey Mouse.

An employee of a small town "liberry" chronicles his quest to remain sane while dealing with patrons who could star in a short-lived David Lynch television series.
