"That lot's for going out to Spadespit and them's for Roadkill Library," explains Seth.
"How are they getting there?"
"They're being picked up and delivered on Thursday."
"What are they going out for?"
"I've no idea."
"Nobody tells me anything in this place!" pouts T.Aldous.
The damned fool's only been in three hours and he's spent all that time sat in his office making a nuisance of himself with the telephone. This is not lost on Seth:
"Congratulations! You're now exactly the same as every other member of staff in the Library Service."
