Boling over

I've found out a bit more about this business of customers having to queue up three times to pick up items they've reserved. It turns out that the problem isn't that staff were putting their backs out bending under the counter to get the books off the reservation shelf. The problem is that (presumably female) staff wearing low-cut tops were complaining about customers looking down their cleavages.

To be fair, there are some pretty impressive decolletages in the lending library. Even so, I can't help feeling they're solving the wrong problem.

We ought to be issuing counter staff with modesty bodices.

This has got to be the stupidest thing yet to come outta the library.

If females don't want their cleavages, or legs, or any other part being ogled, there are plenty of clothes which cover them up.

Pffft. A pox on them (Cow suspicious they are just complaining as a way to further direct attention to those bits, while protesting all the time).
