The following is a transcript of an actual phone conversation I had at work tonight:
Me: Hello, Library. May I help you?
Guy: Yeah, is the baseball sign-up list there?
Me: Um, the what now?
Guy: The sign-up list. For baseball.
Me: Um, no.
Me: You called the library, you know.
Guy: Yeah, I know. Do you have the baseball sign-up list?
Me: Nope. Not that I can see.
Guy: Nothing related to baseball at all?
Me: Um, books, maybe. But that’s about it.
Guy: Huh. Okay, thanks.
Me: Er, yeah. No problem.
I'm not sure what perplexes me more: the possibility that a baseball sign-up sheet would be left at a library in the first place, or the dude's legitimate confusion about it not being here.
