I answer the phone at my library a lot. When I take down patron names for holds, it can be frustrating when trying to understand heavily accented English. "My name is Gtdfdahtiekds." "Okay, Mr. Gtdfdahtiekds, the book will be on hold for you at the circulation desk."

I don't baristas a bit for getting names wrong.

Just going by a common name like Frank at the coffee shop is a good idea.

Now I'm vividly remembering working at a downtown public library. I don't miss it a bit.

We had security guards, but they were paid just above minimum wage and were thus not inclined to be assertive with unruly patrons.
