real life conversations

From the public library circulation desk. . .
Me: How are you this morning.
Shrewish librarian lady: Sir, the express self-checkouts are available.
Me: I know, I'd just rather interact with a real person.
SLL: Sir, I don't have time for that. (goes back to reading the morning paper)

Usually those kinds of things make me mad. Today, just sad. Technology is supposed to make life better, but in separating us from each other, does it?

Cody, I tried to put a flag in this one, but it didn't work out. Sorry.
