This is the world in which I live:
Yesterday was working the information desk at the university bookstore where I work. A student approaches me looking for a book. (the book was a modern play about Antigone, which he pronounced "Auntie gone") Said book is coming in from the States and has been held up at the border. "Oh no," he wailed. "I needed to have that book read two weeks ago. What should I do now?"
"Have you tried the library?" I asked.
"This place has a library?" he asked.
(Wait, don't stop. There was more.)
"Do I have to pay money to borrow the books?" he asked.
"Ummm..." (as in: did he just say what I think he said?)"No."
"But if I return the book late, then I have to pay, right?"
"But if I bring it back on time, I don't have to pay anything, right?"
"So I do have to pay?"
"Ummmm... no. I mean yes, you're correct, you won't have to pay if you bring it back on time."
