Default This Librarian Drove me "Batty" Today

I checked out a copy of "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns pt 1" from the local public library this morning. I saw it before but wanted to watch it again this weekend. I was impressed.

On the way home I noticed that the librarian had accidentally given me 1992's "Batman Returns" with Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito instead. The same thing happened the first time I borrowed this film. Honest enough mistake and I just walked back to the library and politely asked for the right disc. But then the librarian got all freaked out and just said "No, that's Batman Returns."


"But it's not the right one" I said and pointed out the full title on the box.

"Batman is Batman." she said and just kind of crossed her arms.

Without wanting to lecture her about how off base she was acting I just repeated that it was the wrong disc. Lucky for me, a library volunteer intervened and got the right disc for me.

The librarian said "I hate those videos anyway."

She also asked my friend "who would want to read Keith Richard's bio?" when he checked it out.

As someone who's worked in libraries for awhile now, I apologize on behalf of the profession that you had such a dumbass helping you.

Come on man, who doesn't love a good superhero flick where Danny Devito plays the main badguy?
