Dog, Service

iworkatapubliclibrary:

I noticed a woman carrying around a Shih Tzu in the library.

Me: “I’m really sorry, but we don’t allow patrons to bring their dogs inside the library. People could be scared or allergic.”

Woman: “But look how cute!”

Me: “She sure is! But remember for next time, okay? It’s our policy.”

Woman: “But…but…she’s a service dog.”

Me [unconvinced]: “Oh?”

Woman: “Her service is being cute!” And she lifts the dog up and kisses her on the lips.

librarianfacts:
