“Do you have this book that has a red cover?” is apparently a question commonly asked by customers to librarians. Queries like this lack useful specific details, making the librarian’s job particularly challenging, especially when there are so many other books with the same description. This tweet by @metafrantic shows the frustrating reality behind it and how librarians have cleverly poked fun at people who have this annoying habit.
And here was the reply of another Twitter user who had a similar experience:
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
Lolz my library did this too. I took a photo because we used to get this question all the time when I worked at a bookstore. pic.twitter.com/QDeZ8hvG0W
