Bang and blame

T. Aldous accosts Bronwyn.

"The displays of new books in lending are empty."

Quite why this is Bronwyn's fault puzzles us. The Lending Library has a three-tier management structure including a Group Librarian, the Assistant Librarians and the Counter Supervisors, any one of whom could and should be capable of asking the Library Assistants to do the job of replenishing the display. A job that they do unbidden when they're on their own in the branch libraries not worrying about being told off by three tiers of management...

Apparently you need a "Re-Group" librarian since all systems have failed.

Moo!

Maybe Bronwen had fortold of the little pixies coming-in with head-torches and stealing the new books straight from the shelves. Maybe T. Aldous was acknowledging her insight and considering requesting more torchlight at night.

but then again

maybe not

It's all those bovine herds of satisfied customers hoovering up books again - refer T Ald to customer service model.
