If Ever I Saw Your Face

Today at the reference desk, I had a patron begin her request by looking at me and then in mid sentence turn her face away towards the book shelves as she continued speaking. When she finished, I had to tell her, “I missed what you said when you looked away.” Then she turned toward me and very s-l-o-w-l-y and emphatically repeated her request. I don’t know if she meant to be cooperative or condescending but I did understand her this time. Score one for me for speaking up!
