Forgotten but not gone

Popped into Umpty Library to sort out some problems in the Reference Library (no, not them, a faulty printer). As per usual on a Saturday, there was Gordon Trembly, popping in and out of the staff work room and rifling through the local studies files for his next slim volume. Gordon retired as Town Librarian fifteen years ago but still avails himself of the facilities as if nothing has changed.

"Who's that man?" he asked the Librarian.

"That's Kevin Musgrove, he's come in to sort out the printing problems," she explained.

"He's walking about like he owned the place," bristled Gordon's moustache.

"He's probably thinking the same of you," she replied.
