A teacher rings Senebene Library with a complaint. They are very irate because the library has sent a letter to a parent telling them that their child had written in some books they had borrowed from us.

"How dare you do that! She had not written in those books. I had written in those books."

"I'm sorry. We weren't to know that you were at fault and not her. Please could you remember not to do it again."

"But I always write in books."

"Please don't write in our books."

"I shall. I always write in books."

"But these aren't your to write in."

The last exchange was repeated ad nauseam.

It's no wonder modern youth has so little respect for other people's property.

But at least we should respect her outpouring of artistic expression. A clear homage to Mr Orton.

Methinks a letter to the headteacher would be in order.

Whisper it not in Ghent but I know someone who pencils in our books.
Bleedin' cheek!

Madame deF: we thought a six-year-old did it. I won't join the dots...

Gadjo: indeed sir.

Kaz: we were thinking of half a brick

nursemyra: well... yes

Pat: tsk!

Were it me, I'd revoke her library card and charge her for the cost of replacement books.

She can't afford it because she has a child to support?

Then it's off to debtor's prison and take the child with!

I know. Paperwork.
