hamlet

I just had a patron call and ask me to print out "Hamlet"

Me: the entire play?
Patron: yes
Me: we have copies you can check out
patron: no, no I want a printout
me: that's gonna be kinda expensive
patron: can you check and see how much?
me: well it's 159 pages so just under $16
patron: nevermind

I would not have asked.
What the heck did they think it was?!
"Hamlet: a 2-page play written by Mrs. Griffin's kindergarten class."

You should really join library_mofo and post that there. Priceless!

Wait. It would have been worth it to print the whole thing out in nearly-microscopic font.
