The Times We Live In...

At lunch today I sat in the library reading a new book "The Beautiful Miscellaneous by Dominic Smith". Only twenty pages in, but so far I like it.

(Insert dramatic ambient music here for what happens next).

A patron walks throughout the library halls having a loud cell phone conversation. Needless to say, I and the group of people sitting around me found this to be rather disturbing and rude. What happened after that was the most comical reminder of the times we live in. The rude loud cell phone talking patron holds her hand over the cell phone and quietly whispers to the library staff person, "Could you please tell me where I may find a book on etiquette"?

I laughed.
