Frantically looking for runaway fleas

A Big To Do. Somebody's transferred four - count them - four! tatty old books were tranferred to Tench Road Library.

Peeling away three days' worth of senior management fuss and fustle the message can be summarised as: "If a book's too scruffy to go on your shelves, don't transfer it to somebody else's library. If you receive one that's too scruffy to go on the shelves, withdraw it from stock and don't have it inflicted on the poor bloody customers."

How much hard work is it to say that? Far too much for The Professionals

They're missing a trick: forget your "quotas", tatty books on shelves are the sign of success. People here love tatty books, buy them by the yard and put them on their shelves - the tattier the better, looks like they've read 'em.
