Surely that's all the time it would take to do this. I mean, c'mon, it's the 21st century. Librarians are meanies. All that shushing.

Criminy! That's funny. Maybe you could give them the top ten tips for brain surgery, too (and then tell them to go try it).

Actually, all we specialize in is Advanced Shushing.

I'm SO good at it, people shush themselves when they see me coming...

Well, the student making the query is a business major- go figure. Probably thinks his 'secretary' will make coffee for him, too.....
