D for Duh @ Your Library

I wasn't @ work today @ my library, but my coworker kept me in the loop via email:

mom and teenage daughter (who looked like she was 30) come to the desk. Mother hands me a paperback book and points to the spine and asked what the sticker means (it was a D). I said that means the authors name starts with a D. That's how we file paperbacks by authors last name.

Her: "well isn't there any rating system on these books"
Me: "well, no; This book is an adult paperback best seller off of these racks right here"
her: "I know. that's ware we got it. Why isn't there a rating system on them?"
Me: "well, they are adult books for adults, we don't and the publishers don't put ratings on books."

I told her the young adult section was over there if she wanted more age appropriate books for her daughter.

Subsequently, her and her daughter got into a big fight by the paperback rack on what she was "allowed to read."

Comments:
Oh, you mean you don't have the five star or thumbs up system? It's so great.
 
Yes, very funny, totally awesome--think it will work great. you should change it to liberry though.
 
I bet the mom thought 'D' stood for dirty or disgusting.
