A Surprise Moment

Out here in Churchville, we are hundreds of miles from the nearest ferry. Thus I was mildly surprised when I entered Churchville library and found ... a stack of ferry schedules for the Seattle area ferries. I looked at them for a moment, then started to talk with the librarian, pointing at the schedules I said, "Is that...?"

He smirked and chuckled and said, "Yup, we just got those in!"

"Um, ... why?"

"No idea! Maybe because we're a library? They just figure we need any resource we can get."

"Um, as a matter of fact, I'm going to be in Seattle in a couple of weeks... and..."

He handed me a schedule, grinning now, as his boss walked up behind him and said, "Somebody actually needed one?"

Made my day.
