Taking Things Literally

BY P. JENICE SAINT

Taking Things Literally
I was working on an audit of a local school system and needed to visit several area schools. When I arrived at one particular elementary school, I walked into the office, introduced myself and explained that I was working on the school’s audit.

Not sure where to go, I asked the woman behind the desk if she could please direct me to the school bookkeeper.

She very pleasantly asked, “You mean the librarian?”
