It happened again.
I've written about the patrons who want their own gmail/yahoo/aol accounts. But they want US to sign them up, create their user ID and passwords and then, the next time they come in, they will ask us to log them in because they, of course, don't have to remember their ID and password; WE'LL remember it for them.
Today brought a new wrinkle to the proceedings. A man was in with two women, one in her thirties the other in her twenties. Neither one spoke English or anything close to it. He wanted ME to sit down and create emails for them and explain to them how it was done.
Sorry, I can speak some French and Spanish and even a little Japanese, but I do not know nor will I likely ever know how to speak Pakistani. He, of course, KNEW how to create the accounts, but was quite up front about not feeling like it. Even though he speaks the language.
One of my (much younger and more patient) coworkers took over trying to show them what to do. It has been two hours and they still don't have even their passwords created. Younger and more patient coworker is looking waaaaay older and has become a lot snappier in the last two hours as well.
