Volume Control

Woman: Can we turn the volume up on the computer?
Me: No, the sound is disabled, you have to use headphones in order to hear.
Woman: The library doesn’t give out headphones?
Me: No, we don’t. I’m sorry.
Woman: WELL HE’S TAKING A TEST THAT HE NEEDS TO HEAR HE’S GOING TO FAIL!
Me: …If you have headphones from your phone they can also work.
Woman: I DON’T HAVE A COMPUTER AT HOME AND HE’S GOING TO FAIL BECAUSE YOU WON’T TURN ON THE VOLUME.
Me: I’m sorry, but I can’t enable the volume. The only way to solve this problem is to get headphones.
Woman: THIS IS RIDICULOUS YOU SHOULD HAVE HEADPHONES. HE’S GOING TO FAIL. *turns to son* IT’S THE LIBRARY’S FAULT YOU’RE GOING TO FAIL. TELL YOUR TEACHER.
