Patron: Do you have that book, "America's Cheapest Families Gets You Right On Your Money?"
Me: Ah yes (reads subtitle: your guide to living better, spending less, and cashing in on your dreams); ours is checked out. Looks like there are eight copies in our system; they're all out or on hold right now, can I place a hold for you?
Patron: How long is the waiting list?
Me: There are four holds on eight copies, so you'd only be waiting a couple of weeks.
Patron: Nah, I'm gonna head over to the bookstore and buy it.
