You took the words right outta my mouth

Patron: I need a lot of helping getting some some books. I need a beginner's book of yoga, a biography of Abraham Lincoln, a book of watercolor landscapes....

and so on...

Patron: I'm so sorry I'm wasting your time. 
Me: No, it's my job.

and so on....

25 requests later:
Patron: Can I do something for you? Can I call your supervisor and say nice things? Can I buy you a cup of coffee?
Me: Your taxes pay for me to be here and do this for you. Really. Just keep coming back. That's all
Patron: Wow. Thanks.   

Next Patron in line: Man, did that guy wanna pee in your mouth or what?
