Another throwaway wonder by T. Aldous Huxtable, chief librarian, prince among men and people-manager supreme. Bustling out of the building he was heard by everybody to shout to his secretary:
"I'm off to Dutch Bend Library. I'm going to show Edie Bridstock how to shelve books."
The inspectors are impatient for a report that should have been in last Friday, staff want to talk to him about the restructure and Edie Bridstock's been running Dutch Bend Library for thirteen years.
Sometimes even the most insensitive must notice when their chafing is starting to draw blood.
