In the Library: applying for a position

I went on a different library (nearby) to apply for a position that had been advertized as being open. The circulation desk staff had the form and gave it to me to fill out, which I did at a table in the back.

The form had that look of a n-th generation xerox: little dust specks had been magnified each time the paper was copied and become dark random dots; the entire paper was slightly off center and tilted; the type was Times Roman instead of TNR (maybe, I’m not sure on this one).

I filled it out as best I could and then noticed a sign on a nearby table that said something like this:

IF WE FIND OUT WHOSE BEEN STEALING OUR NEWSPAPERS, WE’RE GOING TO PROSECUTE YOU

Exactly like that with all caps. On closer inspection, the piece of paper it was printed on had clearly been previously used to make a paper airplane.
